Kringle and Woolard

Good morning!
Kringle and Woolard are finally finished!

I mounted the stitching on sticky board, and did another sticky board with homespun..My son in law cut me a piece of barn wood that I mounted it on..
I added evergreen trim to the top and side ...I used torn homespun and plaid flannel ribbon for the bow..I added rusty jingle bells and stars.. and some red berries.. 
The chart is from Plum Street Samplers.. 28 count tea/coffee dyed evenweave.. and all Classic Colorworks threads..He was one of my Stitchmaynia starts..

Pumpkin Spice Farm


Good morning friends..
My daughter Chelsea and I both received this new Pumpkin Patch farm chart from Cathy at Hands on Design .. so we both started and finished it!  We dyed light grey 28 count evenweave with brown Rit dye.. we didn't love it so then it got put in a pot with tea and coffee ..
It turned out perfect.. I used all Classic Colorworks flosses and Chelsea used DMC except for the purple/ grey lines ..those are in Classic Colorworks Rod and Reel..Her husband made us the frames with molding and chicken wire.. Chelsea painted the frames and dark waxed them..I mounted the stitched piece onto a piece of sticky board and used some tea dyed orange gingham for the backing. We used magnets and sheet metal so we can reuse the frame for another season.I made the bows with burlap, plaid ribbon, wired berry branches and fall leaves..

Trick or Treat!


Good morning friends!
I had finished stitching this Trick or Treat from Prairie Schooler last year or the year before and I would display it in a wreath.. It wasn't my favorite finish but I loved the stitching!
Then.... I found this Happy Halloween wood sign at Walmart for $4.44 and it is just perfect for the stitching! My husband cut me a board and I painted it black ..He also drilled holes in the top and in the bottom of the sign.. The stitching was already mounted on sticky board , so I added a Halloween homespun fabric mounted to sticky board and then another sticky board covered with black ticking ..all 3 of those got hot glued together..I painted the board with chalkboard paint and then glued the stack of sticky board covered pieces to the top..

He made wire ringlets and attached both pieces together .. I made a bow for the top with black and white check, black check homespun some of the Halloween homespun and burlap..It will hang in the kitchen on the basement door when Halloween decorating gets underway ! Love, love, love it! It's stitched on 28 count tea/coffee dyed evenweave ..

A Teeny Halloween


Good morning!
This little tiny piece is from Lizzie Kate's Autumn smalls..This is another of my daughters pieces that I finished for her.

She found this silver tray ( maybe a butter dish) at a Good will.. this little piece fits perfectly in it! I used a Halloween colored plaid homespun for the back ,that I mounted on sticky board. I also mounted the stitching on sticky board. Then hot glued the 2 pieces together...I made a bow from burlap, and black gingham check.. Then added 2 covered buttons to the middle of the bow..It is very cute but tiny!

Some Witchy Stitching...


Good morning friends!
Isn't this just the cutest Halloween piece!?!

Last year I had finally finished the 2 Halloween houses from Judith Kirby and found this hanging decoration at Hobby Lobby to hang it on...With that in mind .. my daughter stitched this With Thy Needle and Thread ..Bobbing for Pumpkins .. We found this sign at Michaels.. Her husband cut a board and drilled holes to attach the wires that were used to hang it from the sign.. I mounted the stitching on sticky board .. and then mounted black check homespun on sticky board.. glued them together and then glued the board to the back of the sticky board covered with homespun..
It is stitched on our regular tea/coffee dyed 28 count evenweave ..with all the called for "fancy flosses"
It is fabulous and I am sure she can't wait for Halloween decorating to hang it up!

Pumpkin Farm Fall Mantel

Good morning!
The mantel is all decorated for Fall..
I started with the chalkboard ...and drew a scene from a Fall farm.. look at that cute little vintage truck and barn! Stalks of Indian corn and a huge patch of pretty pumpkins!

I used 2 leaf garlands, a garland I made from leaf shapes cut from book pages, burlap lattice ribbon and cotton branches... I also added in a few sunflowers ..

Sweater pumpkins stacked on blue mason jars sit in between the chalkboard and the lanterns ...
Just a whole lot of cute Fall-ness! This mantel will stay this way until it gets decorated for Halloween at the end of the month....

It's September 11... we will Never Forget ...

Farm..Sweet..Farm


Good morning..
Yesterday in our video we showed you this finish of The Farmer's Daughter from Little House Needleworks..My daughter stitched it and I finished it for her...She stitched it on 28 count coffee/ tea dyed fabric with the called for threads but left out the Farmer's daughter words at the top..
Here it is in her kitchen with aprons hanging from the pegs..
I mounted the stitching on sticky board..then mounted red ticking stripe onto another piece of sticky board. I glued them together and added magnets to the back to attach to the metal on the frame .. The frame came from Hobby Lobby.. I used 2 stems of cotton and made a bow from burlap , the red ticking and black check..I also used magnets on the back of this bundle to attach to the frame, so I didn't glue anything on in case she wants to change it out..  The clothespins are weak so just for decoration .. I also added twine flowers in the top corners with a black homespun check covered button..
