Bless Our Home Wreath

 Good morning!
This blue truck filled with daisies was the reason for starting the #pcblessourhome stitch a long from our You Tube channel .. I saw this truck online and knew I had to have it and stitch something to go with it!
 No ...Calvin isn't friendlier ..he just knows if he hangs around me I give him kitty treats :)
We used Classic Colorworks Eves Leaves for all the green .. barn door for all the red .. stepping stones roof and tree.. old blue jeans for house and flag and words
 This truck came from Big Lots .. I think I had been there one time in my life until I had to go and get Chelsea and I these trucks .. then we searched for a chart with daisies and Country Cottage Needleworks had this cute Bless Our Home Chart .. I added some yellow to my flowers and it's amazing!
 Of course the dog got stitched in Ronnie colors..I wired the truck to the wreath .. mounted the stitching on sticky board and mounted red gingham on sticky board ..made 2 bows with red, yellow and blue gingham ..and added some sprigs of daisies.. It will be perfect for summer to hang on the basement door in my kitchen!
 It is adorable and only took a week to stitch up!

I love this! We have a '47 chevy blue truck (not ready to drive, but it was my dad's)... I always look for blue trucks amidst all the pretty gorgeous red ones! Your stitching is so beautiful. P.S. Calvin does like you....

That is certainly a one-of-a-kind Priscilla project! You have quite an eye for decorating! Love everything about this one! Hugs!

Thanks for inspiring me with another cool finish. After seeing your idea with the daisy truck, I found a patriotic truck online that will be a neat decoration with a summer cross stitch piece.

Oh, my goodness, I'm dyeing here! This turned out the cutest! I love love love that little blue truck and the cross stitch looks wonderful Love that you changed the colors of the flowers - they look so much prettier. I stitched this one last year but it's not as cute as yours! Oh, you're such an inspiration!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Hi Priscilla. I have had my computer in the hospital forever. Finally got it out. I have the same truck from Big Lots. I have it hung on my door that comes into house from garage. I am a huge Big Lots shopper. Ours is very nice and has some great buys!! I love the way you used it to display a crossstitch. I have bought a small x stitch sampler, and hope to try my hand soon.
Love yours and Chelsea's floss tube videos. I never miss one.

I have been loving looking at your blog forever. I would love to learn to cross stitch on I tried long ago in the traditional manner and did not even make it through one project. I embroider often, but adore the look of cross stitch...especially yours!

Do you have a tutorial? Or could you recommend one?

Thank you for brightening my day!
