Baby It’s Cold Outside!

Happy Friday friends!
We are expecting a bunch of snow tonight and really colder temps so this piece is perfect!
This is Baby Its cold outside from Heartstring Samplery ... This is the first chart I have stitched from this designer and it went so fast! I have it displayed in the family room on a vintage chair with a vintage window behind it ..on top of a thrifted picnic basket ..

***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****
It is mounted on sticky board and then attached to a piece of sticky board I wrapped with red check homespun ..
I mounted it in a vintage enamel tray .. I used a small block of wood  and magnets to attach to the tray because this tray usually sits on the top shelf of the hutch in the family room and I want to keep it pristine in its rusty chippy appearance :) Its raised up in the bottom of the tray mostly because of size and the use of the wood block ..
Classic Colorworks floss.. English Ivy, Cherry Cobbler, Queen Bee, Hickory Sticks , 12 Grain  and Khaki Mocha .. Stitched on 28 count (tea coffee dyed 3 times to get it dark enough) Monaco.. I started it on Monday and finished on Thursday .. it was a quick one! Love it so much .. it will stay out through the rest of winter !
I added 2 winter greenery and berry picks .. a flannel plaid bow and a pinecone onto a magnet so that can be removed too ..
Thanks for stopping by!

Very nice, appropriate for this time. We are expecting a Winter storm here in Quebec this weekend. I viewed all you Christmas decorations and they were awesome. Good Work.

Love this!! And SO appropriate ❄️ Stay warm and cozy! I think we’re going to get snow too but not like you all will, I’m sure ��❄️��

Beautiful stitching, and I another creative finish!

Absolutely love this, and the finish is perfect. I might have to get this pattern. We get winter storms and cold weather but seldom snow here in the Texas Hill Country, so most winter designs don't catch my interest. Thanks for sharing in your bog, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube posts.

Priscilla,
This is so pretty! Not only the needlework but I love how you displayed it! I have always said that you are the Queen of How to do Vignettes...
Hugs,

You said this went so fast. Would you consider sharing when, where, and how often you stitch to create so many great pieces? I am really jealous!

You're so inspiring, Priscilla. I think I'm going to get back to stitching after 15 plus years.

What a great design for January!! I love the way you use vintage things to display your stitching. By the way, I had that design made into a mug. I love using it this time of year.
