Jolly July .. Jolly Claus

 Good morning!
We are so excited for Jolly July and our series of 4 ornaments .. the first is Jolly Claus ! He is available in our Etsy shop here ..
The sweetest Santa carrying his Jolly sign ! To finish him I mounted the stitching on sticky board with batting underneath .. I then added plaid fabric ( this is from our Christmas finishing bundle at Fat Quarter Shop ) to 2 sticky boards.. I added the black check ribbon tie behind one of the plaid boards and also Lori Holt vintage trim in cloud ..and then glued those 2 plaid fabric covered sticky boards together right sides out so the back is finished .

I added 2 different ribbon bows to the top and a little bottle brush wreath .. I also added flocked greenery  underneath the ribbon..He is a quick stitch so I can't wait to see your finishes!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Another Home .. What’s In My Cup

Good morning!
This is our Home .. What's In My Cup design available here in our Etsy shop
This was stitched by the 12 year old grand daughter! She used DMC and stitched it on Venetian Stone Aida ..To finish it I mounted it on sticky board with batting underneath .. I added red gingham to sticky board and glued the two  pieces together . I found the little chalkboard easel at Michael's. I glued the stitched piece to the easel .. then added the little fence pieces on top . The fence pieces were scrapbooking embellishments ( not sure where they came from ).I added a vine to the fence and some yellow flower buds on top and some tucked behind the fence ..Two bows and a covered button were added to the top ..
I had previously stitched one like this without the cup you can read more about here 
And here is Home in the cup ..

She did  great job ..didn't she?

Yard Sauce ..Beach ..What's In MY Cup !

 Good morning!
Look what's in my Cups!
For all of our Beachy friends there is Beach .. for all our gardening friends there is Yard sauce! These are available in our Etsy shop here 
 Beach includes the cutest sand castle .. beach ball ..bucket and shovel and star fish with an anchor thrown out the side of the cup!


Yard sauce ( stitched by Chelsea) is a cup full of veggies.. Corn .. green pepper.. eggplant ..cherry tomatoes cascading down the side ..tomato and basil! Of course there is a bee buzzing around!


 To finish them ..I mounted the stitching on sticky board .. For yard sauce I used 2 more sticky boards covered with fabric for the backing and then added a bow of 2 different ribbons with some little yellow flowers and a covered button .. I used magnets and washers on this piece so we can use it again for other designs .. Beach I used one more sticky board covered with fabric .. and then added a twine bow to this little beach chair .



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Calvin and Clyde

 Good morning!
This is Calvin and Clyde our last in the new releases for July! Clyde is the cutest scarecrow with his buffalo check shirt and of course Calvin ( the meanest cat in america ) sitting in the pumpkin patch.
 This design was a chalkboard in my kitchen last fall!
 Calvin is taking requests for autographs ..he is so proud!
 I stitched it on 28 count Monaco that I Rit dyed with charcoal grey then coffee/ tea dyed ..all floss is Classic Colorworks .. The truck is from Hobby Lobby in the fall section . I mounted the stitching on sticky board .. and added a sticky board with black  buffalo check fabric and a second sticky board with orange ticking stripes .. All 3 pieces were glued together and then glued to the bottom of the truck.. I added a burlap bow to the raffia bow that came on the truck with a sunflower on top .. another easy finish!
Now I have to get this stitched up for myself since Chelsea stitched this one! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

September Truckin' Along!

Good morning friends! 
This is the September Truckin' Along..in  our year of Vintage Trucks ! 
Calvin loves Fall because he knows Halloween is coming!


September for us is all about pumpkin picking .. so the truck is loaded with pumpkins under the fall leaves .. The chickens are even helping to pick pumpkins! 


 A cute scarecrow is standing guard over the pumpkin patch.. The topper has lots of fall leaves and pumpkins! There are 2 new Classic Colorworks threads included in the design .. Sweet Potato and Little Sprout!
 to finish the design .. I used the same frame from Hobby Lobby .. I mounted the stitching on sticky board and also mounted plaid fall colored homespun on sticky board . glued both pieces together and used washers on the back to attach to the magnets already glued on the frame ..
This ships to shops July 6th .. so you have plenty of time to get it stitched for September !
