Summer .. Seasons in Chalk

Good morning friends! 
Another exciting day as the Summer Seasons In Chalk from Hands on Design and " me " has come out in the June issue of Just Cross Stitch ..It is out digitally right now..should be out on newsstands in a couple weeks..

 Here is Cathy's stitched piece and my chalkboard..I still cannot believe how lucky and blessed  I am that she asked me to do this.. and can we talk about how perfect the charting is to the chalkboard !
 Coneflowers and bees are my idea of summer!
Mine is framed on  top of a board painted with chalkboard paint inside of a thrifted Estate sale paint by number vintage frame. I use magnets on the chalkboard and little pieces of sheet metal on the back of the stitching.. you can see Winter here and spring here.. I also have stitched mine on 28 count black Monaco instead of the 32 count linen ..

From the magazine.. isn't it amazing with the white background too ? I might have to stitch it again on white !~

 My garden is filled with coneflowers .. Can't wait for them to start blooming again!
Hope you enjoy stitching this and show me your progress pics ! Hashtag #seasonsinchalkart if you are on Instagram ..We would love to see them! There are still 4 more designs to come ..and you are going to love them!!
 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 ! :)

Thanks so much for all your visits and sweet comments !

Very pretty! Your garden is so beautiful: I imagine it provides you with a lot of inspiration, though I'm not sure how you can upkeep all that goodness and find time for stitching too!
Happy Days,
