A Truck Full of Chickens

 Good Morning!
Can you stand the cuteness!?!
This is the little truck from the Fresh Eggs Farm Chart! The chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration between Hands On Design and me !
I used a frame from the thrift store.. mounted red ticking on sticky board and then glued that to the top of the frame .. I then mounted the stitching on sticky board and then hot glued that to the ticking.. 

Chelsea stitched this last week and I finished it up for her last night .. It is adorable on the coffee / tea dyed fabric! I made the bow from homespun checks and black ticking.. I then covered a button with red homespun checks.. It is adorable! We hope you will join us in our stitch-a- long with the hashtag #pcfresheggsfarm


she used the Classic Colorworks Barn Door , Gentle arts chalk and dmc 844 for the tires..
I made valentine sugar cookies for my little valentines..I spent a couple days this week taking down all the winter decor.. spring decor will be going up soon! All my farmhouse touches are heading back into the kitchen!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! 
Do you all remember when I got the red rooster chalkboard to put my Country Cottage Needleworks cottage of the month pieces on ?
Well... that didn't last too long! I decided I wasn't crazy about them on there .. I had this tray from a flea market this summer and I wanted to use it for something.. I placed this on top and loved it! I added a pretty black gingham bow and a black homespun check covered button .. some magnets to the back of the stitching and L-O-V-E it! When I stitched the cottage of the month I did change the colors on this one ..and I just added the red stripe ticking to the back of it ..

 So.. I tried the February Prairie Schooler monthly piece on the rooster  chalkboard and loved that too.. so 2 Redo's! They are the perfect size to fit on the chalkboard!
 I will be painting the rooster chalkboard either cream or black as soon as it warms up.. Don't you love them both ?!?
the rest of my Valentine stitching would be the Lovely Home piece I showed you yesterday ..
 February form Lizzie Kate ...so sad that she will no longer be designing .. the February Sampler months from Little House Needleworks and Classic Colorworks.. and you can see the way the Prairie Schooler months used to be displayed ..
 And lastly the February wordplay from With Thy Needle and Thread..

Vintage Cupcake Pan Love ..

 Good morning!
I am here to share "lovely Home " from Country Cottage Needleworks .. started stitching this yesterday and finished it up this morning .. For Christmas I stitched another skinny little piece from Country Cottage Needleworks "Tis the Season"and mounted it on this vintage cupcake pan and hoped that this one would also fit!

 I changed the colors to use what I had on hand .. all are shown below.. I was going to do the house red but I might want to leave this out past valentines day and  the aqua will fit into my kitchen better..
 I made a bow with ribbon and ripped fabric and cut hearts with pinking sheers from bookpages ..I attached the hearts with hot glue to a little strip of burlap ribbon
 The stitching is mounted on sticky board on top of a piece of sticky board covered in ticking stripe.. magnets are glued onto the back to attach to the cupcake pan..
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Its Still Winter!


Happy Friday!
I finished up Lizzie Kate's Winter from the Winter Smalls chart last night ..
I just used floss that I had on hand .. all colors shown above..
this is how it looks outside this morning.. about 10 new inches of snow last night and this morning..not complaining at all .. lots of snow makes for green grass :)
 I used the same little chalkboard easel tray that I used for the Autumn smalls
 it's stitched on 28 count tea/coffee dyed Monaco .. I used two wintery picks on the top ..and a magnet and washer to be able to change it out ..This only took a couple hours to stitch up and is adorable ! I used black gingham ribbon with a piece of torn blue gingham fabric for decorations.. A covered button of black gingham finishes off the bow..

It's February


Hello Friends !
Here is February Sampler months from Little House Needleworks/ Classic Colorworks ..there are the thread packs you get with all the floss to complete them.. 
 I started stitching it yesterday and finished it this morning .. these are very quick to stitch !

 I did change up some of the colors.. I did the house in Khaki Mocha and all the other white areas.. Hickory sticks for February and the branches , and muddy puddle for the roof an d windows. I also added panes in the windows with the Cupid color.. It is so pretty! I have it mounted on sticky board and then glued to a black gingham fabric covered sticky board .. A metal washer on the back to adhere to the magnet on the chicken wire box.. and there you have it ! Only 3 months left to do ..March and April and December ..I love having these on display each month!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello Snow!

 Good morning!
 It is Hello snow inside and outside! We have been getting a couple inches 3 times this week so far... and of course I finished up this cute Country Cottage Needleworks Hello Snow chart!
 I changed a few things .. the color of the border , the scarfs and I left off the big top and bottom borders of snowflakes. I stitched it on light blue tea/ coffee dyed 28 count Monaco ..all the colors I used are shown above..
 I had this tray that I found at a flea market for $1.00 and I had a Fall piece in it but wanted to use  it again and I figured if I left off the snowflake borders it would work!
 I mounted it to sticky board .. added a gathered piece of ripped red gingham.. used a washer on the back to attach to the magnet I had already put on the tray .
 I made a bow from greenery and black gingham ribbon and added a covered button ..
 It has its place of honor on the table in the family room with the Snow Place like Home banner and also Winter Wonderland ,,
 So pretty to keep Winter from being dull and boring! :)

 Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Baby Bee Blanket..

 Happy Monday!
The first crocheted  baby blanket for the new grandchild to be is finished! I got this pattern from Pinterest for the blanket .. It is done in shell stitch..
 and then crocheted the little bee.. I did not use a pattern for the bee , I just took yarn and a hook and made him ....I think it turned out so cute! I used the I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby ..It took 3 skeins of the off white to make the blanket ..
 I blanket stitched it on the blanket with black . I left the wings and the antennas loose ... for more texture..
