A Snowman Grater


Good morning!
It is a snowy one here!
I found this vintage mini cheese grater at the Goodwill a couple weeks ago and when I got this cute little Ready Set Snow chart from Hands on Design I knew I wanted to use it on the grater ..

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



I mounted the stitching to sticky board ..and used torn homespun to ruffle around it .. I added a buffalo check bow and flocked greenery that I attached to the grater with a pipe cleaner .. The stitching is attached with a magnet .. A big black gingham check covered button finishes it off
I used Classic Colorworks Bamboo.. Black Coffee ..and Licorice Red 
We are supposed to have about 7 new inches on top of the 7 we got the other day so lots of snow! It is so pretty!
Have a great day ! I am off to stitch some Farmhouse Chalk... LIKE IT'S MY JOB :) Haha!
Thanks for stopping by!

Another great idea Priscilla. I need to pay more attention when I go shopping and think out-of-the-box like you!! So cute.

Just love your ideas. I do have a question. When cutting your mounting boards do you use a scissor or paper cutter? My hand gets tired when I use a scissor and am thinking of buying a paper cutter but not sure which one to get. Thanks for your response.

Not sure where to ask questions other than here. I'm just getting back into stitching after a lengthy break. I have a bit of DMC but no specialty threads, like Classic Colorworks. If I want to do a chart, like All Bundled Up! by With Thy Needle & Thread, can it be done with DMC and be presentable? I have so much to relearn. Thanks for your advice.

What a great way to display the stitching. I have a few old graters. I will have to look at them in a new way.
