The Mason Jars are Here!

Happy Saturday! 
This is such an exciting day! The chalkboard Mason Jars  are here! All the time I get requests for the jars to become charts and so it begins!

First up is the Harvest Jar ..they come with 2 charts .. the jar and a small .. and so far 7 in the series ..

The series is called ChalkFull and I got to draw the logo :) This is a chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration with Hands On Design .. This is the 5th series .. and series 4 is still ongoing .. Farmhouse Chalk .. and just wait until you see that ! Oh my gosh it's amazing!
Cathy does a great job making the chalkboards come to life as stitched pieces!

I bought the enamel sign   at  Hobby Lobby ( in the enamel section) for the jar and the enamel bucket ( in the spring shop)for the small also came from Hobby Lobby .. ..
I mounted the jar stitching on sticky board.. and then covered another sticky board in big black gingham checks .. I glued the two of them together and used magnets on the back to attach to the enamel sign.. I made a bow with black gingham ribbon and added a sunflower and a magnet on the back . Super simple finishing but I love it!

For the small I cut an oval piece of sticky board .. then layered 2 layers of batting .. under the stitching .. I added 2 torn black check ruffles of different sizes and a piece of green gingham that I knotted for texture every inch and half or so .. 4 little sunflowers are glued to the ruffles ..

You will love stitching these .. I cannot even express to you how much I love them


Liberty Jar is the retreat piece for the Midwest Cross Stitch retreat that is taking place this weekend in Minnesota  .. the attendees have been stitching this since February but were not allowed to show it on social media until this weekend so everyone would be surprised! Are you surprised ? :)
This one won't be out until next Spring so it's exclusive to the retreat attendees until then ..


I hope you are as excited as I am to be able to stitch the jars ...
A little peek at my kitchen yesterday .. cookies for the retreat attendees !
Call your shop ..and get on a list for the Harvest jar chart .. They ship to stores in June so you can get it stitched up for sunflower season!

I am so excited I have waited for an announcement like this for a long time! I just love them! I wish you could buy extra ones like a couple of the HOD from the store that put on retreat. ((hugs))

Love the chalkboard jar. In giving away things for our future move, the hardest thing to part with was my Bell and Mason Jars. I had to downsize them, but will miss them. I love to store leftovers in them as things like pork chops don't get overlooked in clear jars.

These are beautiful. Would love to win the jat kit. I have never been to a retreat but they sound fun.

Two of my favorites sunflowers and mason jars. I am a big food preserver and my kitchen is done in old and new mason jars. You are very talented.

Priscilla, I am just so excited for you and this post is just proof that you are super talented and sweet.
I retired from teaching five years ago this June. I had cross stitched since my college days back in the early 80's. When my kids reached that age of going going going all the time and I had some health issues cross stitching hit the back burner. The months leading up to retirement I started thinking about cross stitching again. Where I once looked at teacher blogs, I was now looking for cross stitch.
This blog was one of the first things I found. I became obsessed with the monthly cottages and the little non framed finishes. The wheels were set in motion. I just wanted to thank you for inspiring me five years ago. I stitch daily and it has always been my favorite hobby. I now have time to do it and love stitching pieces that don't have to be framed. I have stitched some that have been framed.
Anyway, I am so glad you and Chelsea are having fun and that people are recognizing your talent and inspiration. You certainly inspired me!

I love these designs! So excited to stitch all of them! I found the enamel farm fresh and olive bucket at hobby lobby. So excited to stitch these and finish them. Thanks for your beautiful designs.

I used to cross stitch with my best friend when I was in my teens and 20s. I made things for other people but never for myself. I just love your style and how you and your daughter share your interests. You’ve helped me get back into cross stitch after 30 years. Congratulations on your new line I’ve already ordered them fromFQS. Keep inspiring people!!!

Priscilla what did you stitch your Chalkful Harvest on? I ordered the kit with the Slate fabric linen by Stephanie and it has a lot of purple mottling. The Classic Colorworks floss doen't even look good on it. I want to be thrilled so I would like to stitch it on what you did it on so I am not disappointed. I love everything you do and design and this will be my first, Cindy
