Sweet Christmas

Good morning!
My Sweet Christmas quilt is finally finished.. and the Golden Retrievers have doubled ..The new boy is Sam and he is a rescue that my son and his girlfriend brought home ..
all the animals know when there is a new quilt .. and have to take their turns breaking it in!
Last year I made the Swell Christmas ( on the left ) and this year Sweet Christmas .. I stitched all the blocks in August but finally finished it this weekend ..aren't the colors amazing!

This is the video we watched from The Fat Quarter Shop  and we also have the book to learn how to do this quilt as you go method ..



The backing is the aqua and red checks shown here , and I used the cream snowman faces for the binding .. Don't look at the Halloween chalkboard still hanging up :) Hopefully it will be Christmas by the end of the day!
Calvin says .. Don't touch my quilt (•_•) or else!

Christmas in the Hutch

Good morning friends!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here !
Today it is all about the hutch I bought on Craig's List 2 years ago ..
All colored text is clickable for more information..
When I bought the hutch it was dark green and I chalk painted it off white and distressed it .. I looked for a long time for an open hutch like this for the family room and I still love it all decorated up for every season! 
The Hot Cocoa sign on the top came from Michael's .. the rag garland is from our friend Rich ( he sells the garlands on his Instagram page you can click here ) there is also a sparkly greenery garland and white lights up on top ..
My Department 56 Santa's .. Fitz and Floyd and of course Rae Dunn are all present ..
cross stitched Christmas pieces .. this is Merry Brew  Plum Street Samplers 

Coupe De Noel Collection Tra La la

Baby  it's cold Outside .. Heartstring Samplery 
I have twinkle lights strung through all the shelves and I can't wait for you to see it in  the Christmas Home tour! I love adding little vintage touches throughout the house .. and here there are little vintage Santa salt and pepper shakers and a vintage Santa sitting on a little girls bed .. The Fitz and Floyd Santa and Reindeer dish is filled with tiny  ornaments from my childhood ..and of course a vintage scale and vintage chickens!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Holly Jolly Farm .. Farmhouse Chalk

Good morning!
I am so excited to be able to show you Holly Jolly Farm !
My chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration with Hands on Design ..this is the last in the Farmhouse Chalk series ..

I stitched mine on 28 count black evenweave ..
This hangs on the wall in the dining room..
 I used the same "door "( Hobby Lobby in the spring) that I have used for the rest of the series ..
I bought the small evergreen wreath at Michael's and added flocked greenery picks. I made a bow from 2 different ribbons .. black check and buffalo check and also added ribbons woven through the wreath ..I mounted the stitching on sticky board and also mounted buffalo plaid fabric on sticky board.. I glued the two pieces together and then glued the corners into the wreath , and tied it to the top of the door  .

For the small I found this fabulous wood Christmas tree at Michael's .. I added black check fabric to sticky board and glued it over the panel that said Christmas ..I added buffalo plaid ribbon to the top of that and then glued the stitching on top of the ribbon .. 


The largest piece was mounted on sticky board ..buffalo plaid fabric was also mounted on sticky board .. the pieces were glued together and I added washers to the back to attach to the magnets on the door 

Santa .. his reindeer and chickens .. and Ronnie even makes an appearance .. this was so fun to draw and stitch I hope you love it!

the chalkboards ..

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Santa!


Good morning!
This is Coupe de Noel by Collection Tra la La
I stitched it on 28 count evenweave that I dyed with Rit dye in apple green then coffee tea dyed ..I changed the floss colors and used all Classic Colorworks in the colors ...Cocoa Bean ..Black Coffee ..Cherry Cobbler ..Rainshower.. Bamboo.. Perfect Piecrust ..Jolly Holly .. Spinach
I mounted the stitching on sticky board .. and also mounted red/ white buffalo check fabric on sticky board .. I added ruffles to the sides with white fabric with red polka dots .. both of these fabrics came from our Christmas finishing fabric pack from the Fat Quarter shop available here 
I had Chelsea cut me a piece of the shiplap they had left over from Cash's nursery and I glued it to the board .. I made a bow from plaid ribbon and added a glitter snowflake and a reindeer to the top of the snowflake ..I added flocked picks behind the bow ..
I started this for Stitchmaynia and it is my 15th Stitchmaynia finish ..Love it and I am so happy to have it ready for this Christmas
