Threee Finishes for Chelsea

Happy Sunday!
I finished up 3 of Chelsea's finishes this week and here they are ...
***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****
First up Sunflower Sampler from Heart In Hand ..I finished it on this little screen door we had found at a thrift store . Mounted the stitching on stocky board with a piece of batting in between ,, and added ruffled black gingham .. I made a bow from 2 different black check ribbons and added a big sunflower and yellow thistle balls.

Next .. Heart In Hand Merry Making Mini 4th of July .. I mounted it on sticky board with 2 layers of batting and mounted plaid homespun on another sticky board .. glued them together and added them to this handmade distressed paddle from Lela Mae designs ..they have a facebook group where they sell their items .. I added a ticking stripe bow and a star cut out of ribbon with a covered button for the center . Chelsea used the floss pack for land that I Love .. listed below
and last .. Happy 4th of July from Tiny Modernist .. I used a piece of the shiplap board from Cash's nursery and mounted the stitching on sticky board ( I also used batting on this one ) mounted plaid patriotic fabric on sticky board ..glued the 2 pieces together and then added a red ticking ruffle . A bow made from 3 different patriotic ribbons and a daisy with a covered button for the center .



My Happy 4th of July was finished the same way ... just with different fabrics , ribbons and of course stitched on different color fabrics . But you can see how a chart looks so different just with finishing and fabric colors !

America!

 Good morning!
The chalkboard in the kitchen is all set with the stars and stripes!
 This chalkboard hangs in my kitchen and I change it out for all the seasons and holidays ..
The frame is from a yard sale and I had a board cut to fit and painted it with chalkboard paint..
You can see those star spangled swine hanging out on the wall in the dining room ..

I love to decorate in all the red white and blue of the season!
sometimes you need a little help:)
Thanks so much for stopping by !
