Chelsea's Stars and Stripes



 Happy Saturday!
This is Chelsea's version of Stars and Stripes from Little house Needleworks ..stitched on light grey tea/ coffee dyed 28 count monaco..
she left off the border and changed the word color to blue ..it is stitched in all DMC called for colors ..I mounted it on sticky board and used a decorative block I found on clearance for less than $2.00 ..I added gathered homespun and a bow at the top with a covered button ..
I stitched this design years ago and it is stitched on aida.. I love her changes and almost want to stitch it again!

Stars and Stripes Forever

Good morning! 
I finished stitched Bent Creek Stars and Stripes yesterday and finished it up last night!
I LOVE IT!
 
Remember this Bent Creek Halloween piece that I mounted on a vintage window?
 I was so happy to see this row was the same size .. and set right out to finish it!
 I mounted the stitching on sticky board ..of course :) then added some homespun dark red gingham checks, that I tore and glued down on the back ..
 I made a bunting from navy ticking ... added some of the Lady dot creates rick rack in Motherlode (gold) cut stars out of the homespun that i had applied interfacing to ...and covered 3 buttons in a patriotic plaid homespun ..1 large for the middle and 2 small .. I tied the bunting on so I can use the window for other designs..
 I think it is going to be displayed in the top of the hutch in the family room ..
 I used these 4 classic Colorworks color floss..Blue corn , Toasted Marshmallow, Barn Door and Honeycomb ..I did the Honeycomb instead of the greyish green that had charted..

Strawberry Freezer Jam

We picked strawberries and made freezer jam! 
 All together we made 48 containers of strawberry freezer jam that Chelsea and I split ..
we use this Sure Jell pectin and the directions inside for freezer jam..
you wash and remove the stems from the berries.. then smash with a potato masher  ..
mix the berries with sugar 
 Then cook the pectin as directed .. and mix with berries .. then you  add to your containers and it stays good in the freezer for a year .. If it lasts that long! :)
