I finished stitching these two pieces this week and got them fully finished today.. The first is Springtime Social from With Thy Needle and Thread. It's stitched on 28 count tea/coffee dyed evenweave..I found this pedestal frame at Michael's .. it is a pretty tall one..
I mounted the stitching on sticky needlework board.. Then mounted green gingham on another piece of sticky board.. glued the two pieces together.. added a couple magnets to the back and stuck it to the board.
This little bunny is from Prairie Schooler Book number 52.. I stitched him on black 28 count evenweave. I had found this frame at the Goodwill..I added black gingham to the back of the frame ...and mounted the stitching on sticky needlework board. I used magnets on top of the gingham and a small piece of sheet metal to the back of the stitching.
I also added some mini pom pom trim around the back of the stitching. The frame was gold so it got a coat of off white chalk paint ..and then I glued black gingham ribbon around the frame with white ric rac on top. A gingham bow and covered button finish it off..
The bunny only took a couple hours to stitch and the rooster with the chicken on his back took a couple nights worth of stitching.
