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 ..

I love your FFOs-I am going to try your finish on one of my FFOs but I am not very brave!!!!! Maybe this weekend.

You really do the most amazing things with cross stitch! I love the trivet idea. It looks like your garden is doing beautifully.

Okay, so now I know what to do with my mom's olive green and orange trivets when I eventually inherit them. She doesn't use them, but she won't part with them either.

Oh, I love the idea of using trivets in finishing, Priscilla! I'm so sorry now that I got rid of mine from years ago. Time to hit up Goodwill, I guess :) That will be perfect in the baby's room!

I thought I left a comment but I don’t see it. I love your videos and look forward to them . I was wondering on this weeks video your beautiful sunflower wreath did you use the called for colors or did you change them and what color was the fabric? Thank you
