 Good Morning!
It's all finished ! WOOHOO!
This was one of those projects that took a turn and turned out differently than what I had planned ..
 ***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****
 I found the house garlands at Target Dollar Spot and used 1 plus more of second garland ..I just moved them closer together on the Baker's Twine and added some from the second string of houses . When I went to hang the garland up it kind of got lost on to plan B ..I lined them all up on the counter and knew I wanted to mount them to something ..

 In the Fall I had gone to Joanne Fabrics and the sale they had was you could pick out anything from their "free:" table I got this wood piece that has a galvanized middle FREE..
 and believe it or not it was the perfect size ! So I painted the wood with Lori Holt's Chalk paint from Fat Quarter Shop .. Watering Can is the color . I them painted the galvanized back with chalkboard paint .. but I wasn't crazy about the way it looked .. so sticky board covered in black gingham and I love it !
 These are 1-3/4 inch each finished .. The smallest pieces I have ever finished and I burnt my fingers a lot :) They are mounted on sticky board with batting underneath and then mounted on red gingham covered sticky board ..I stitched them on 28 count tea/ coffee dyed fabric with Classic Colorworks from our Be Merry Floss pack with the addition of Cocoa Bean
 I mounted each letter onto a house and added a little bottle brush wreath to the top of the roof on each house . I glued the black gingham covered sticky board into the frame and glued each house on top ..I painted wood snowflakes white and glued those down and also added a piece of red / white bakers twine tied in a bow to each house ..
I hung it over the door to our half bath and think its perfect for this spot!

Amazing! On flosstube, you said you were going to finish Christmas differently and I just love it. What a wonderful idea. Now I want to add Christmas to my list of stitching. Thanks for sharing, Priscilla.

Phew, That is alot of work to finish this one!! :-) But it is so creative and looks so good! You always come up with great finishing ideas!! I got lucky and found that chart in a stitching store in Reno, Nv a few weeks ago, and it was even on the heavier cardstock! I'll be starting my set soon! Have a great weekend! Hugs, H
