Two More Jolly July Ornaments

Good morning!
I finished  up these 2 ornaments that Chelsea stitched this morning as part of our Jolly July stitch a long with Kimberly at The Fat Quarter Shop! These are both from the Christmas Cheer leaflet from Heart In Hand ..
 ***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****

I need to stitch both of these .. they are really sweet! For the snowman I mounted it on sticky board with batting underneath ..and then mounted buffalo plaid to another piece of sticky board . Then glued those 2 together . I used a buffalo check ribbon with snowflakes for a hanger ..a bow of black buffalo check .. red berries and a wood snowflake
For Ho Ho Ho .. I mounted it on sticky board with batting .. mounted red plaid on sticky board .. added a bow of ribbon that looks like a knitted sweater ..flocked greenery and a Santa bell tied with red check ribbon 
Both were stitched with Classic Colorworks Floss in Licorice Red.. Pine Needles.. Sticks and Twigs .. Poblano Pepper.. Tangerine  and Bamboo on 28 count Tea / Coffee dyed Monaco 
These are Chelsea's finishes so far for Jolly July Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is Merry Holly Berries from With Thy needle and thread .. I used Classic Colorworks floss on a 28 count Rit dyed Monaco that was also coffee tea dyed .. the floss colors I used were Sticks and Twigs, Cherry Cobbler, Avocado, Bamboo, and English Ivy  
I finished it in a round .. added a thick ruffle around the ornament of torn homespun plaid .. a plaid bow and a gingham bow on top with a rusty bell finish it off ..It is adorable!
Next is Lizzie Kate Tiny Tidings XVll I used Classic Colorworks Black Coffee ..Licorice Red and Toasted Marshmallow.. it was stitched on 28 count tea/ coffee dyed Monaco

and last from Heart In Hand Needleart All is Calm .. I decided to stitch it for my chalkboard tree so I stitched it on black 28 count evenweave .. I used Gentle arts Chalk .. and Classic colorworks in Holly Jolly , Steamed Broccoli , cocoa bean and Licorice Red .. I changed up a lot of the design and I love it .. It only took me a couple hours to stitch .
To finish it I mounted it on sticky board with batting underneath ( I did that on all of  these ornaments) I used torn red gingham to make a tight ruffle around the ornament and added a buffalo check bow .. a covered button and some berry sprigs in white
I really am enjoying Jolly July .. and i hope you are stitching along with us! I'm seeing lots of the #fqsjollyjuly hashtags on Instagram and Facebook!

Jolly July Ornament finishes!

Good morning!
I am having so much fun stitching Christmas for our Jolly July stitchalong with the Fat Quarter Shop! I have finished 6 of my 10 starts so far! Look at the cuteness!

All colored text is clickable for more information..

 ***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****
This is Christmas Cheer from Country Cottage Needleworks ..Day 9..  I decided my elves needed  to be in my favorite buffalo check colors! I mounted the stitching on sticky board and covered another sticky board with the plaid fabric for the back ..I ruffled red and black plaid homespun and attached it to the edges ..a ribbon hanger of black check and a buffalo check bow with a covered button top off the ornament .. I  then added 2 sprigs of greenery with red berries to the sides .. It is adorable!
Floss colors .. all Classic Colorworks ..Bamboo, Steamed Broccoli, Licorice Red , Black Coffee

aren't they just adorable! 

Next finish  .. my Day 2 ornament Merry Christmas To All by Heart In Hand
I left off the penguin and added buttons to the snowman .. again a lot of red and black floss. I used Classic Colorworks ..Licorice Red ,, Eggshell, Black Coffee, Rain Shower , Trail Dust and Jolly Holly
I also mounted the stitching on sticky board with batting underneath .. and mounted the same homespun to another sticky board for the back .. A red check ribbon is used for the hanger . I ruffled homespun for the outside edges .. and added a buffalo check ribbon bow and a snowman jingle bell ..It is so cute ! Beads came with this chart but I did not use them I just added stitches where the beads were supposed to go ..

So I have 5 ornaments for my trees so far and one for Cash's tree! Hopefully I can keep up with all of these and get a lot more finished!
