Pumpkins 4 Sale

Good morning!
Pumpkins 4 Sale is all finished up! 
I finished stitching this Little House Needleworks piece on our road trip back from Mackinac Island..

My daughter and I had gone to Hobby Lobby a couple weeks ago and Chelsea saw this wood basket ..It is perfect for the piece!  So yesterday I mounted the stitching on sticky board and used some green and cream flannel for the background mat .. I glued those two pieces together and added sheet metal to the back. I used magnets on the wood basket ..just in case I stitch something else that would fit on it ..

I had fun filling it up with a burlap pumpkin, sweater pumpkin and some Fall picks .. of course I had to add some of my favorite thistle stems in 2 colors!
I added a burlap bow to the handle ..and look how fabulous it looks!
There won't be a new flosstube video today ..but Monday there will be and I will be able to show you the new Chalk for the Home Autumn.. my chalkboard to cross stitch collaborations with Hands On Design!
Have a fabulous weekend!

This is fabulous. When you make your next video would you us the sticky back board you use? My Michaels doesn't carry it already sticky so I'm a bit confused. Thanks.

Absolutely love all your creative ideas. I have admired the small cross stitch designs for a long time but never came up with clever ideas to decorate with them. Love your podcast but S-L-O-W down a bit. We want to see everything!
