Hot Cocoa Bar

 Hello friends!

The Halloween decor has been put away and I'm slowly but surely taking out all of my Christmas decor. I had forgotten how many gingerbread pieces I had stitched and finished for my downstairs vignettes until I started pulling them all out of their bins today! 

This year, in addition to all of the gingerbread decor, my friend Christi and I decided we "needed" a hot cocoa bar theme, too! I'm working on stitching a bunch of patterns for that vignette, but I was able to get these two quick stitches done in the meantime to start filling in some space.

They're both finished on two of my red and white large check tiered tray blocks available in my Etsy shop.

"Cookies" from Lizzie Kate was a finished on the 3.5" x 5" block.


"Hot Cocoa" from Little House Needleworks was double-matted and finished on the 5" x 5" block.

Both were super quick and easy stitches. And being that I used the tiered tray blocks, all I had to really do was add some cording and bows.

The little pins on "Hot Cocoa" are from the talented Puntini Puntini. They're SO CUTE!

Halloween Finishes

Hello friends!

Today I'm sharing some of my Halloween finishes that I love putting out every year.

This "Happy Halloween" piece is a new addition this year. The pattern is from Primrose Cottage Stitches and it was super quick and easy to stitch. I matted the stitching to some black and white check fabric and then mounted it to the front of this spider wood sign I found at Joanns this year. 


"Boo" from the Prairie Schooler is a small stitch that has been matted with two different coordinating fabrics and mounted to the inside of this "Trick or Treat" pedestal sign I found at Michaels. It sits on the top shelf along with my primitive Halloween doll, and of course, Rae Dunn mugs.

"Let Them Eat Candy" by Hands on Design was also mounted to a pedestal I found at Michaels. It's just matted with more buffalo check fabric and topped with a bow. I put this out next to my Halloween tiered tray.


As always, my "Bobbing for Pumpkins" piece by With thy Needle and Thread hangs from my rustic window. This was the piece inspired from Priscilla from Stitching with the Housewives. The sign is from Michaels and its perfect for the piece.


"Ye Old Crow" got a little update this year. I moved it from a black frame to this black window arch and then added some spooky ribbon and orange berries. It sits on a little bench with one of my Halloween gnomes.

"Tingles" by Lizzie Kate also got a little makeover this year. I moved it to an old whitewashed shutter and it currently sits on a bench in the corner (until I move it 100 times). I changed out the bow and added a few of those berries to coordinate it with the other pieces.

Premade Fabric Easels

Hi friends!

I listed a few premade fabric easels in my shop today. Many of you have requested them as a "shortcut" to your finishing, but I do also offer a finishing service with them if you need it. I'll be adding more shortly!

Pumpkins for Sale

Hello friends!

"Pumpkins for Sale" from Lori Holt has officially been finished and added to the fall decor this year. At times, I never thought I'd get this piece stitched up and finished in time. It's very large and a LOT of stitching, but so worth it in the end. 

I did change the scarecrow's sleeves to black and white buffalo check just so it would go with the rest of the vignette I have displayed on top of the piano. Other than that, I made no changes. 

Pumpkins for Sale was stitched on 32 ct light taupe lugana, matted with two different backing fabrics and mounted to the front of this old planked wood piece I found at a thrift store and drybrushed with a little while chalk paint. It's one of my favorite finishes of this year!

I Love Fall (most of all)

Hello friends!

One of my newest fall finishes this year that I added to the hutch in the kitchen is this really cute stitch from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery called "I Love Fall."

I finished it on this grater so I can add a bunch of fall picks to the top. I just love the colors of fall, so I wanted a mini "explosion" of it on the hutch. The piece is stitched on 32 ct Taupe Lugana and I picked most of my own colors. The grater and ribbon are both from Hobby Lobby, the coordinating fabric is from Joann's, and the picks are from Michael's.

Halloween Enabling

Hi friends!

Being a needlework finisher, I'm given the opportunity to see beautiful patterns come to life in person. More times than not, most of my purchases come from seeing charts stitched up. Two of my latest Halloween finishes were no exception. I absolutely love stitching Halloween, but when these two pieces arrived at my house, I wasted no time gobbling up the charts immediately.


This one is "Halloween Queen" from Not Forgotten Farm. Isn't she great? She's the most perfect mix of spooky and primitive and I absolutely love her. 


This next one is "Izzie Dekayen" from Silver Creek Samplers. I've passed on this chart I don't know how many times before seeing it stitched in person on that amazing fabric Stephanie picked out. Had to have it!
