Queen Bee Flower Farm!!!


 Good morning!
WooHOO!!!
I am so excited to share the Queen Bee Flower Farm with you! This is the 2nd in the Chalk on the Farm series ..my chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration with Hands On Design..and it is so
 A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
 The chalkboards that were charted for cross stitch by Cathy at Hands on Design ..
Both pieces all stitched up and ready for display 
 I used the same frame I bought at Hobby Lobby that the first Chalk on the Farm ..Fresh Eggs Farm was mounted on ..Mine is stitched on 28 count black Monaco ..I used magnets on the back of the big piece because there is metal on the frame .. the top I used a magnet glued onto the frame and a metal washer on the back of the stitching ..This piece hangs on the dining room wall right off the kitchen ..
You can preorder these or get on a list at your LNS to get it as soon as they get them .. we are doing a stitchalong with the hashtag #pcQueenBee ..it is a start it when you get it stitchalong ..no start date or end date..

Two Little Bits Of May

 Happy Monday!
I stitched all the Country Cottage Needleworks cottage of the month a couple years ago .. a couple months ago I decided my display of them needed to change ..so I used this #oldandcrusty silver tray to mount them on with magnets and washers..I added some red gingham to the back of the stitched piece and love it so much ..It is all ready for all the patriotic decor that will be going up!

This is Chelsea's Lizzie Kate May .. we had mounted April last month on this little hanging  chalkboard and of course used magnets and sheet metal to switch it out..
The colors of the letters were coral and she changed that to Classic Colorworks Old Blue Jeans ..the green was baby spinach from Gentle arts ... I stitched mine in these colors last year and we both wanted the blue because soon we will be decorating with all our patriotic pieces!

****Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****

The rest of the design will be revealed this week .. so if you love it get on a list with your shops! They will be getting all the info tomorrow! We are having a stitch along with the hashtag #pcqueenbee ..

Strawberries!

 Good morning!
I stitched this Strawberry House from Little House Needleworks last year and finished it on this piece I found at Hobby Lobby   But then I stitched a bee piece that I knew would be perfect for the frame so off it came and I knew I would have to find another way to display it .. I found this wood piece at Hobby Lobby and painted it with chalkboard paint .. I also go the cute little strawberry buttons there ..

I added a red gingham bow and some of the little buttons and a few chalk doodles and I love it!

 Now onto Chelsea's strawberries.. this is Lizzie Kate seasons Summer..
 I mounted it on sticky board and added a homespun ruffle .. I made a strawberry from felt ..it is adorable.. its mounted with magnets onto the thrift store tray ..She stitched Spring and I made the carrot


so summer needed a strawberry!


 So there are our 2 strawberry pieces .. don't you love them!

Spring on the Shutter


 Hello friends! I finally finished up the Spring Little House Needleworks ABC'S! I finished stitchi9ng it this morning and got it on the vintage shutter this afternoon!
I made the bow on the top from burlap and lace ribbon ..tan ticking and red farmhouse stripe ribbon ...daisies were added into the bow..
 I  used blue gingham for the mat behind the stitching ..I used sticky board but had to use more than one piece for the length. I changed the butterflies to bees and left out the heart over the bunnies and added a bee.. I changed 2 of the colors the lavender..sugared violets  was changed to Classic Colorworks Ladybug and I used Hickory Sticks instead of La Tierra ( surprise ..surprise from Classic Colorworks
 all the floss colors are below.. I love this and can't wait to see the summer version!


It all started with the Autumn ABC's

Bless Our Home Wreath

 Good morning!
This blue truck filled with daisies was the reason for starting the #pcblessourhome stitch a long from our You Tube channel .. I saw this truck online and knew I had to have it and stitch something to go with it!
 No ...Calvin isn't friendlier ..he just knows if he hangs around me I give him kitty treats :)
 This truck came from Big Lots .. I think I had been there one time in my life until I had to go and get Chelsea and I these trucks .. then we searched for a chart with daisies and Country Cottage Needleworks had this cute Bless Our Home Chart .. I added some yellow to my flowers and it's amazing!
 Of course the dog got stitched in Ronnie colors..I wired the truck to the wreath .. mounted the stitching on sticky board and mounted red gingham on sticky board ..made 2 bows with red, yellow and blue gingham ..and added some sprigs of daisies.. It will be perfect for summer to hang on the basement door in my kitchen!
 It is adorable and only took a week to stitch up!
