Stitchmaynia week 3 and a Finish!

Happy Friday! Week 3 of Stitchmaynia is complete! One of my starts was O Be Joyful from Heart In Hand and I fully finished it this morning.. I mounted it one sticky board ..mounted black and red plaid fabric on sticky board .. glued them together ..added flocked greenery ,, a wooden snowflake ..buffalo plaid ribbon and a bow .. and on the bottom buffalo plaid ribbon with vintage trim from Beelori and a black gingham covered button ...I did change the floss colors and it is so cute! I say that every time ...don't I :) 
This is Christmas Sampler from Lori Holt.. I was supposed to start this last week but my fabric wasn't dark enough for the white to show .. so I dyed my fabric again and made it darker aqua .. love it so much with the Ribbon red floss
I also started Be Thankful from Country Cottage Needleworks .. Hope to have this one finished by Fall!

I was supposed to start Free and The Brave from The Drawn Thread .. when I opened up the chart and saw all the specialty stitches .. I just didn't have the brain power at that time to try  to learn those .. so I chose the Holiday Hoopla from With Thy Needle and Thread .. hoping to get this one finished up really soon!

Chelsea had 5 starts this week .. she's a little behind :) This is Sweetest Home from Country Cottage Needleworks
Sunflower Farm .. Needlebling Designs
Holly Jolly Holiday .. Heart In Hand
Tiny Modernist .. 4th of July
and Woolemina from Plum Street Samplers

We both were working in our yards this week and planting vegetables and flowers.. so not lots of stitching time!

Congratulations on your O Be Joy finish! I really like your changes to a more traditional color palette. Both of you had some amazing starts for Stitch Maynia. I am enjoying both of the projects that you are using the 'board' fabric with. Enjoy your weekend!

Love the plaid fabric you used on your O Be Joyful ornament. Where can I find this fabric. Thanks!

Your cross stitch is beautiful. Ronnie makes a perfect model for your patterns and stitching.

You really have some wonderful designs going on. I think I want to do Knee High. I grew up near Joliet,IL and I heard my dear Dad say that all summer!
