Sunflowers and Sheep


Happy Friday!

This is Louise and Henry from Little House Needleworks.. I found the frame at the Goodwill and it fits perfectly ! I stitched it on 28 count tea/coffee dyed evenweave ( of course) ! I used all the called for threads ..my only change was to leave out the checkerboard pattern at the bottom of the hill.
I am starting to switch out all the daisies for sunflowers ..sunflowers and bees are what I am going with until Fall .. I just need to stitch MORE ! :)

I added a bow made from 2 different homespun checks and a sunflower..easy finish but cute!

Bless the Flowers and the Pups..


Hello friends!
I finished stitching this chart.. Birds and Bees from Heart in Hand the other day and finished it up today..
I used this wood piece that I had Strawberry House mounted on ( I used sheet metal and magnets.. ) I used sticky needlework board and then used black homespun check  on another piece of the sticky board for the mat..
Three of the bee buttons ( Hobby Lobby) and a sunflower and its ready for late summer display..It's stitched on 28 count tea/coffee dyed evenweave ..I used all Classic Colorworks threads and I changed out a couple birds for another flower on the hive..
and lastly ..Bless our pups.. We have 2 Jack Russell's ...but..Our sweet girl Reagan became an angel on Sunday night..It's so sad to lose a beloved pet and the whole family feels her loss greatly ..she was almost 13 , and I think she had a great life with us.. RIP Reagan .. you are so loved..<3

Bees and FleaMarkets..


Hello friends..
I found this little piece of a garden fence at the flea market a couple weeks ago ..
After I finished Honeybee Sampling from Little House Needleworks I knew it would be perfect for it!
I mounted the stitching on sticky needlework board and also did the black homespun check on a piece of the sticky board.. I glued them together and hot glued it to the fence. I made the bow from some burlap ribbon.. added a covered button in a smalled check print and glued on a few bees I found in the scrapbooking section at Hobby Lobby
I changed the rose colored flowers out for Classic Colorworks Ribbon Red and used all the rest of the called for floss..It's stitched on 28 count tea/coffee dyed evenweave..

July!



Hello friends!

I finished stitching this July Sampler months from Little House Needleworks this morning and had to get it finished right up and put in the galvanized tiered tray in the kitchen..

I changed out 3 of the colors and love the way it looks( all floss I used is shown below) .. I mounted it on sticky needlework board , then mounted navy homespun check on another sticky board and glued them together.. I added a red homespun check bow and a navy ticking covered button..
Doesn't it look so pretty in the tray?

America The Beautiful


Happy Monday friends!
The chalkboard has been changed up to red, white and blue!
I had a hard time erasing the chicken , she was just too cute !
There's a picket fence with bunting ...of course! Old glory waving in the wind and my favorite red and white stripe flowers.. with blue centers!
This chalkboard is one of my favorite seasonal decorations and gets changed out pretty much every month! The frame was bought at a garage sale and I had a board cut at Home Depot and painted it with chalkboard paint.. It hangs on the wall in my kitchen at the entrance to the family room..

It's hard to believe its almost July ..this summer has gone so quickly so far!
