Carrots and Cottontails Farm !

Happy Thursday!
Woohoo!
It's time to show you the new Carrots and Cottontails Farm the first in the Farmhouse Chalk series!
This is a chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration between Hands on Design and me ! The colors of floss are amazing and 
As always Cathy did a fabulous job bringing my chalkboards to life !
Look at those cute carrots!
I found this door at Hobby Lobby ..( it's in the spring section ) I also found this boxwood wreath at Hobby Lobby .. I trimmed the greenery up quite a bit so it fit better on the door.. The gingham carrots and bunny were also from Hobby Lobby
I used floral wire to attach the wreath to the door .. I will be adding a new wreath for each of the designs to come .. so all the decorations are glued on .
The chalkboards ..

as always the "sign" is mounted to sticky board and then another piece of sticky board is covered in black and white buffalo plaid fabric 
It took me 9 days to stitch all 3 pieces .. I stitch mine on 28 count black evenweave .. So "hop to it" :) and you will have a new spring design to decorate your home!
for the  small piece .. I had this wood box I found at  a thrift store 99 cents  ..so I chalk painted it black ..and filled the box with greenery , cotton stems and gingham carrots .. I also added a black check bow and a little chalkboard bunny .. It is so cute! I mounted it to sticky board with to layers of batting so its a little puffy and then glued it to a black buffalo check covered sticky board .. I used a washer and a magnet to attach so I can switch this out ..

Spring decorating will begin soon and I can't wait to use this in my spring decor
The largest  piece in the chart features the carrot farm .. with the prettiest farmhouse .. adorable truck ..amazing tree..cute bunnies and chickens and a wonderful garland of carrots and tulips! Washers on the back of the piece with magnets on the door ..so I can change it out with the rest of the series ..

So there you have it .. Call your shops to get in on the preorders ..it ships next week!
Happy Stitching everyone:)

Just fabulous! I don't stitch on black but after watching you and Chelsea on Flosstube, I will stitch it on a tanish linen and I know it will be beautiful!

Your pieces are amazing! I just received your Carrots and Cottontails to stitch. As I’m just getting back into counted cross stitch, I hope this will be a great experience using evenweave. Wish me luck! I’m so excited to start!
