My First Punch Needle!

 Happy Saturday!
Isn't this cow just the cutest!!!
 This was my first time trying punch needle and I loved it ! I mounted it on sticky board and then onto a black gingham fabric covered sticky board .. It then got glued to a piece of barn wood.. I added a twine bow , a black gingham bow and a fall pick to the top..
 I used a combination of DMC and Classic colorworks for the floss. I used a Morgan lapstand hoop in 10 and 7 inches ..and the Cameo Ultrapunch needle with the medium size needle . I love it and already have another project ready to start!

Queen Bee Wreath


Hello friends..
Can you stand the cuteness? 

 I stitched the sign portion (again)of Queen Bee flower farm .. my chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration with Hands on Design .. if you remember I have already stitched this chart and finished it like this ..
I wanted to use it for a wreath for my vintage window ..
 I finished stitching it this morning and made it into a wreath this afternoon. I found this oval wreath at Michael's ..I mounted the stitching on sticky board and ripped black gingham fabric and glued it to the back .. I glued the very corners onto the grapevine wreath ..

 I used 3 white sunflower ..back check ribbon and some gold thistley things ..
I love it and it is so perfect for this time of year to go with my sunflower and bees theme ..

Chickens on a Trivet


 Good morning!
We have a rainy day here .. but we really needed it!  This is Coop from Bent Creek part of the Spring snapper series .. Chelsea stitched it and I finished it on a trivet I found at the Good Will for $1.99.. I broke out the ceramic piece and glued a homespun covered sticky board to the base .. I mounted the stitching on sticky board and added some Lady dot creates ric rac around the edges .. It is adorable!
 I am working on Blessed Bee from With Thy Needle and Thread
 and also the Queen Bee Flower Farm sign from Chalk on the farm my collaboration with Hands On Design .. I have already stitched this but have an idea in my head for finishing that I really want displayed ..

And there you have it .. the cutest tiny chickens on an awesome chicken trivet ..

A Chicken In A Basket

 Hello friends!
I stitched and finished this cute chicken ( Hens and Chicks)from With Thy Needle and Thread back in March .. and while I liked the finish I didn't love it .. and now I love it ..

 
Originally I had used this picket fence from Hobby Lobby to hang it .. I found this Tobacco Basket at Hobby Lobby last week and decided to take it off the fence and pop it in the basket ..
Right now it sits on top of my kitchen shelf.. not sure if that's permanent .. but it looks awesome there..
I left it mounted to the ticking covered sticky board .. added covered buttons .. a ruffle of torn white and red homespun .. a couple cotton branches and a gingham bow .. I did use magnets and metal washers in case I want to change it out..
