A Stitchy Spring Vignette

 Happy Wednesday !
Last night I finished stitching With Thy Needle and Threads Springtime Messenger design.. I used mostly DMC floss for the design except for the bird.. and I changed the color of the urn to aqua blues instead of greens..
 I framed it using a church rummage sale frame ( 50 cents) it's pretty chipped up and even has some paint splatter on it ...but I kind of like it that way to go with all the other vintage and chippy things in this basket..I mounted some green check fabric on a piece of needlework sticky board that would fir the inside of the frame on the top .. The frame was too deep to use if I were to traditionally frame the piece.. Just didn't look right. Then I used the sticky needlework board for the stitching and just hot glued it on. It is sitting in an easel on top of a bed of moss in a pedestal bowl..

I also glued the buttons down instead of sewing them .. Then I used a thread from some burlap ..tied little knots in it and glued to the top of each button..

 If you would like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)
