Welcome to the Carrot Patch!

Good morning!
This turned out so adorable.. can you stand the cuteness!?!! It is Welcome Spring by Country Cottage Needleworks ..I stitched it on 28 count Monaco that my daughter Chelsea and I dyed aqua with Rit dye , then also tea dyed..
 I changed up colors and you can see what I used above.. I also left out the welcome on the carrots because I knew I wanted to use this bunny sign..the bunny sign is from Hobby Lobby and the carrots from Walmart ..

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

 It looks perfect with the carrot patch mantel!
 This piece of gate is from a flea market last fall and I also used it for my Christmas Rules .. the bunnies came with a rope hanger that I placed over the top of the gate so I can use it for other pieces :)
 I mounted the stitching onto sticky board .. then mounted a piece of orange gingham on sticky board and a piece of black gingham on sticky board.. hot glued them all together and then glued that stack onto a piece of chalkboard ... I used black gingham strips to attach the bunnies to the chalkboard
 I made a bow from aqua gingham ribbon , and ripped pieces of black and ornage gingham .. flower blossom strands and a bundle of carrots add to the bow .. I also ripped off the bow that came on the piece and added a aqua gingham bow and covered a button with black gingham for the center..

  If you would  like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

This is so cute! I just love the way you help us by describing how you do things. I know it has opened my mind on finishes. I now think of how I will finish while I stitch. Thanks for everything my dear!! ((hugs))

This is absolutely gorgeous! I love how you put the different components together <3 If we weren't in the middle of winter storm 'Quinn' today I'd be on my way to Hobby Lobby to pick up this frame! Can't wait till Saturday to see this finish on your flosstube <3
Smiles, DianeM
