Chalkfull Snowy 2

Happy Monday !
This is Snowy Chalkfull .. my chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration with Hands on Design .. This is Kimberly's from The Fat Quarter Shop that she stitched and I finished ..

***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****

Fat Quarter shop has a club for the Chalkfull series so she used fabric ( 14 count chalkboard Aida) and all the called for floss .. I found this aqua frame at Hobby Lobby .. It is a picture frame so I took out the glass.. mounted a red gingham check fabric on sticky board and stuck that over the frame opening .. Then mounted the stitching on sticky board .. and glued that to the top of the red gingham piece ..  I made a bow from aqua gingham ribbon and red ticking stripe ribbon .. added another bow made for Lori Holt vintage trim and topped it with a red polka dot covered button ..some greenery picks were tucked in behind the bow .. Love how it is so bright for our dreary winter!
This is my Snowy .. mounted on the enamel piece I have used for the series ..
The crew has been hard at work on the next "jar" the jar portion is almost finished ... it is adorable and I cannot wait for you to see it!

Hello Winter!

Happy Wednesday!
The chalkboard in the kitchen is all ready for winter !
Ronnie is all kinds of appalled that Calvin is on the chalkboard and she is not :) This chalkboard gets changed out for all the seasons and holidays..
boy oh boy .. I hated to erase that Christmas one .. But this one is just as cute and festive!
a snowman .. a snowkitty ..and a snowchicken all welcome winter ...with the snow falling around them ..
 Calvin is perched on the snowman's head ..keeping watch for his next victim !
The frame is vintage .. a piece I found thrifting ..
Calvin of course loves the chalkboard ..Ronnie and Piper .. not so much !
thanks so much for stopping by!

I have a strand of twinkling lights woven through the shelves and another strand of white lights on top .. A putz type house sits on the bottom shelf .. the wood tree on the middle shelf came from an antique mall

Snowman Tiered Tray

Good morning! 
The Tiered tray is all set for winter and snowman season! 
Got all 5 in the photo :) 
I loved this tray decorated with Santa Mugs so much that I had to use my snowmen mugs in the same way .. 

all of these snowmen mugs and salt and pepper shakers have been found in thrift shops
My favorite are the 3 little guys in front and those are Fitz and Floyd 
Calvin is still waiting for Halloween decorations to come out again .

I found this tray at Hobby Lobby .. and added greenery and buffalo check bows .. I also found the buffalo check tray at Hobby Lobby on clearance ..
Thanks so much for stopping by!

My Favorite Crochet Infinity Scarf 2019

Happy Thursday!
I decided to make a couple new scarves for the granddaughters and here they are ...It only takes a couple hours for each .. I have made a lot of these scarves in both this width (10 rows) and the 20 row size ..You can read more about the other scarves here  .. and get the pattern there too ..
 I use a size H hook I crochet very loosely and I like these a little tighter ..
I needed to try them on .. so all the dogs became scarf models .. Piper
Ronnie
Nala
and Sam wanted a head wrap ..:)
 All you need is a skein of yarn.. (I use I Love this Yarn from Hobby Lobby )and a couple hours to whip one up!

January Squaredance

Good morning!
The January Squaredance from Heart In Hand is finished!
This took one evening to finish ..they are small so easy to accomplish ..

I switched up the floss colors.. and used Classic Colorworks Ribbon Red ..Black Coffee.. Bamboo and Rainshower .I stitched it on light grey 28 count evenweave that I coffee tea dyed ..
This is my 4th finish in the series .. and so far they are all fitting in the buffalo check canister (Hobby Lobby last year) I mounted the stitching on sticky board with 2 layers of batting .. then mounted the stitching to a buffalo check covered sticky board that I leave a lot of room at the top so I can add bow and other decoration...I used buffalo check ribbon for the bow .. a covered button  and some flocked greenery ..magnets attach it to the metal canister ..
thanks so much for stopping by!
