Quite Simply Halloween

Good morning!
This is Halloween -Tout Simplement ( Quite Simply Halloween ) from Jardin Prive .. Chelsea stitched this on 28 count Monaco we dyed with grey Rit dye ..
I finished it by mounting on sticky board.. mounting Halloween stripe fabric on sticky board and adding some purple chenille from Lady Dot Creates ..it was then put on two boards that had been fastened together with small pieces of wood in the back .

***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****
I added Jack O Lantern Ribbon for the bow .. and placed that on top of some buffalo check ribbon I had glued to the wood.. I added a rusty Jack O Lantern jingle bell and a JAck O Lantern pin ..This stitched up so cute I had to order it for myself!

Two Little Witches

Good morning!
It's all about two if the cutest witches today! First up my last Jolly July start .. From Prairie Schooler Witching hour ..this little witch ornament ..
I finished her last week at the retreat .. and finished her up on one of the wood paddles that are sold by Lela Mae Designs .. You can get these paddles on their facebook page ... Also if you are interested in going to their Spring retreat with us .. sign ups start 10 a.m central time Monday September 23  ! 
I mounted her on sticky board with batting underneath .. mounted homespun checks on sticky board .. added striped and check ribbons and a covered button that I cut the fabric out so the cute little cat  was in the middle ..so easy and so cute! She will be an ornament on my Halloween Tree .. I used Classic Colorworks Blackbird and Honeycomb
***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****
Next up is Chelsea's cute witch ..This is Spirits and Spells from With Thy Needle and Thread ..I mounted her on sticky board  with batting .. added a  really full  ruffle of stripe Halloween fabrics .. a plaid Halloween bow and a velvet  pumpkin .. 


I finished this same chart last year and here is my finish ..
The frame was from the thrift store and it was gold with a mirror in the center .. Chelsea chalk painted it and left some of the areas of gold in it ..

Jack O Lantern Junction Farm !

Good morning! It's time ! It's Time!
what an exciting day it is because I get to show you the newest Farmhouse Chalk! Ghosts are flying high in the sky over the farm ! Goats .. chickens and cats are the stars of this show!
This is Jack O Lantern Junction Farm ... my chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration with Hands On Design ..Cathy once again did such a great job turning the chalkboards into awesome Halloween Cross Stitch!

I used the same wooden door piece that I used for Carrots and Cottontails Farm and the Star Spangled Swine Farm 
Oh my goodness I just love this! 

The sign is mounted on a pumpkin from Walmart .. I added spider web fabric behind the stitching that has 2 layers of batting and then mounted on sticky board . I also added some of Lori Holt's vintage trim around the edges . I added a bow with Halloween plaid ribbon and black check ribbon .. Halloween berries and a velvet pumpkin with a Happy Halloween sign top it off..

The small is long and skinny this time .. I found this wood plaque at Joanne Fabrics and chalk painted it ..watering can from Lori Holt chalky paint .. I mounted the stitching on sticky board with 2 layers of batting .. added Halloween buffalo plaid fabric onto another sticky board .. I added a black check bow .. candy corn garland and a wooden jack o lantern 
I used part of the small to make the smalls exchange piece I took to the retreat last week .. Isn't it just the cutest!
3 layers of sticky board ..a ruffle .. lots of ribbon and a rusty jingle bell jack o lantern .. along with chickens and pumpkins ..
I was so excited to be doing a Halloween design! I think it turned out amazing and I hope you can't wait to get it and stitch it!  Did you see the goats and Calvin and his brother we didn't know he had ? :)

The chalkboards that I drew for the charts ..
The front of the chart ...This ships to shops next week so get on a list .. call your shop .. preorder .. whatever you like to do!
