Summer ABC'S


Good morning!
Summer ABC'S from Little House Needleworks is all finished and on display! I finished stitching it last week and finally got around to finishing it yesterday .. I had to paint the shutter ..it just did not look good in the brownish color with the red, black and yellow..so I chalk painted it yesterday with linen white and sanded the edges a little ..It looks amazing!

I mounted the stitching on sticky board .. I  have to put 2 pieces together because it does not come long enough ..

I used black gingham on another piece of sticky board ..I add ribbon ties and tie it to the shutter for changing out the seasons .. There is a magnet at the top to change out the bows ..

These are the colors I used .. I did switch a lot and switched a couple words..
I love it and love it on the vintage shutter in my kitchen .. 

***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****

aren't they all just wonderful?

Love all 4 seasons of the ABC samplers--did you do the stitching one??
So far I have the winter one stitched, the winter one stitched and the spring all stitched--and have the letters stitched in on the summer one and the Fall one--and now am working on the Fall designs in hopes--that one can be hung and displayed in the Fall--but I am also moving at the end of this month from FL to NY--soooo????????
enjoy, di

Prisilla , it is beautiful! Thank you for the colors and changes you share with us. There are some projects that I have bypassed until I see your stitching of them and then I am blown away! You're so inspirational. Have a great week! BTW, I am still keeping up with the days of the week xs projects! Love it! I am at www.farmgirlsam.blogspot.com if you want to see.

This is so adorable, Priscilla--and I like the white shutter even better than the brown. I think all of the seasons will show up better on the white :) Not sure if I will ever stitch this, but will definitely remember your color changes if I do--they look great!
