Red, White and Blue Farm


Good morning!
 Happy Friday! It's the start of the patriotic season .. so everything is getting a touch of red white and blue!
I couldn't erase the cute vintage truck so I red, white and blued it up!
I added more red flowers to the truck of flowers, added bunting on the top and bottom and the words..

I added the red gingham ribbon , and a chicken and cow for the red white and blue farm..
and the Red, White and Blue Farm  would definitely be a flower farm ...growing truckloads of the prettiest flowers! :)
I am off to do yard work.. A little behind finally getting my zinnias planted!

It's A Patriotic Banner


Good morning!
I knew when I stitched these 3 patriotic pieces  from Little House Needleworks that they would be made into a banner for on top of the hutch in the kitchen..


I finished stitching Home of The Brave last night and got up early this morning to finish them up!
The photos are not as pretty as it is in person .. but let me tell you I really love it!
To finish them I ripped strips of homespun gingham and gathered it ..I Used hot glue to attach it to the back of the mounted needlework pieces. I also hot glued a hanger out of the same homespun. I use push pins in the top of the hutch to attach them. I also cut out book page stars and glued them to a piece of twine, and the flag banner came from Michael's. I also made the daisy garland from faux daisies and twine..
These are thread packs that come with the thread so I used all the called for Classic Colorworks threads. They are stitched on 28 count tea/coffee dyed evenweave ..They measure 4 x 5 inches,

A Summer Picket Fence


Hello!
I finished stitching up this cute as can be Lizzie Kate Summer Smalls piece yesterday..Today I was at Michael's and found this little picket fence ( I think it was $1.79?) very cheap ..
so I mounted the stitching on sticky needlework board.. ripped strips of red gingham that I gathered and glued on the back. I hot glued that onto the fence and added 2 black gingham covered buttons and its finished! This was one of my starts for Stitchmaynia .. and now I will show you the rest of my starts and I am still going ..maybe until the end of the month!

It's Almost Strawberry Season!



Hello!
I have a sweet little finish to show you..I started this Little House Needleworks Strawberry house a week ago ..and finished it this morning..
I found this frame at Hobby Lobby ..the decorative trim was turquoise so I painted it with black chalk paint.. there was also a turquoise hook in the middle so I unscrewed that.
I mounted the stitching on sticky needlework board and also the red gingham was mounted on sticky needlework board. Glued together with hot glue and then I used magnets on the frame and sheet metal on the back of the gingham piece .. So if I want to place a different piece on it its very easy to change..
Love the colors ..it is super cute!

A Stitchy Update


Good morning.. it's time for a stitchy update!
So my "spoiled" daughter dropped off her latest projects for me to finish up for her.. :)
She stitched 3 of the eggs from Prairie Schooler Farm Fresh and just made the bottom straight instead of rounded. We found this frame at Michael's and how perfect with the chicken wire..

I ripped strips of homespun and gathered it and glued it to the back of the mounted pieces. They are attached with magnets and sheet metal..I used the clothespins just for decoration.
Then it is Hen Party from Little House Needleworks.. I used a 99 cent frame from the Goodwill and chalk painted it. I mounted the homespun onto the backing of the frame and mounted the stitching to sticky needlework board, Black check homespun tied in a bow with a covered button to finish it.
It's really cute!
Now for my stitching.. I am participating in Stitchmaynia  again this year and starting a 20 projects for the first 20 days..and yes I know I am nuts!
Patriotic Poppies from With Thy Needle and Thread was my start for day 5

Home of the Brave from Little House Needleworks was day 4
Country Cottage Needleworks Merry Christmas My Deer for day 3
Long May she Wave from Little House Needleworks day 2
Plum Street Samplers Scary 2 was day 1 and the last day of April I started Strawberry House from Little house Needleworks ..I was traveling so some of these are airplane shots :)
