Summer Stitching

 Good morning !
Summer and all the patriotic decorations are coming out !
I had finished stitching this Lizzie Kate 4 seasons summer a while ago ..and last night mounted it onto needlework board and also added a mounted piece of red gingham to this aqua clip frame I found at Michaels.
I did change the colors on the Lizzie Kate to fit in with the more red ,white and blue theme..and the aqua frame .Don't you love red and aqua together ? I do !!

 I started foofing the galvanized tiered tray for summer.. I still need to add more flags and maybe some little banners . I was just anxious to show you this summer stitching !
I will be back soon ( I hope)  to show you that!
 I stacked these two Good Will baskets ..stuffed a Mason Jar in the top one .. My daughter and I painted the red,white and blue mason jars a couple years ago. I put them in a wire mason jar basket that was a gift from my sister in law.
When I put the seasons out next year I will be making a fabric mat for all of them ..I love the red gingham on the summer so they will all be getting fixed up !
Here are the rest of the 4 seasons
I did finally get my vegetable garden planted on Thursday ..So late this year ..Hoping we have better summer weather than we have had so far this spring!
Have a fun and safe Memorial weekend!

Love your summer vignette! Tell me more, please, about the aqua clipboard. You said it was from Michaels but I don't see it online - and I simply must have one now that I've seen yours :) Was it a regular clip board and you added the top and bottom? Or did the whole thing come that way? Thanks for info! Just discovered your blog a few weeks ago and love it!

Looked at Michael's online and see what the clips are - what I'm interested in most is the whole display piece - did you make that? If so are there details anywhere on your blog? Thanks again!

Mary Clark ,I tried to respond directly to you but you are a no-reply comment blogger .. If you read this the whole piece came from Michael's . I bought it last fall in the frame section of the store .

I love the seasonal cross stitch designs and the original way you've chosen to display them on the rustic looking clipboard.

I've recently started a weekly Stitchery Link Party for all things hand embroidered including cross stitch and I'd love to have you come link up.
