A Truck Full of Chickens

 Good Morning!
Can you stand the cuteness!?!
This is the little truck from the Fresh Eggs Farm Chart! The chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration between Hands On Design and me !
I used a frame from the thrift store.. mounted red ticking on sticky board and then glued that to the top of the frame .. I then mounted the stitching on sticky board and then hot glued that to the ticking.. 

Chelsea stitched this last week and I finished it up for her last night .. It is adorable on the coffee / tea dyed fabric! I made the bow from homespun checks and black ticking.. I then covered a button with red homespun checks.. It is adorable! We hope you will join us in our stitch-a- long with the hashtag #pcfresheggsfarm

she used the Classic Colorworks Barn Door , Gentle arts chalk and dmc 844 for the tires..
I made valentine sugar cookies for my little valentines..I spent a couple days this week taking down all the winter decor.. spring decor will be going up soon! All my farmhouse touches are heading back into the kitchen!

I have just discovered you guys - and first of all - you are adorable! And I am now obsessed. In addition to my quilting, knitting, crocheting, Needlepoint, and weaving - I've decided I have to go back to cross stitch too. I've been putting it on the back burner for years because I didn't think my eyes could deal with it - but everything I have seen on your videos is so cute - I have to do it one way or another. So thanks! And keep up the adorableness!!!

I was wondering where the cookies were! I started reading your old blogs, I am up to 2013! You are a woman after my own heart. Love banners, Christmas, fall and Halloween. Love your cookies, I don't bake sugar cookies but might start!!!!! Love Saturdays to see you and Chelsea. Stay crafting!!

Chelsea, love your truck. Just such a great idea to take a small piece out of a bigger one to make a lovely treasure. Happy stitching.

Beautiful finishing so inspiring as always. I have just got my copy of chalk on the farm cannot wait to start it just need to decide on fabric. Can I ask how you rip your homespun/ticking fabric do you just make a cut and tear down the length ?

What a darling take-off from the larger piece! Love everything about it! Gotta try ripping some of my homespun and ticking... I like that look! One thing I noticed that is very cool is the 'Farm Sweet Farm' tray BEHIND the truck finish... I love metal trays, and that one is sweet! Thanks for sharing!
