The Coffee Table



Good morning!
Yesterday the family room coffee table got a transformation! My daughter had gotten a buffet from a thrift store and painted it this color ..Rust-oleum chalk paint tinted Lake Blue.. I loved it and thought it would be perfect for the coffee table.. A few months ago I had used the Linen white from
  Rust-oleum to paint it and after we got new furniture it was just too white ..
My old stitching chair which is now Chelsea's stitching chair :)
It started out this really dark brown ..and the top was pretty messed up ( kids let loose in the house )
I love it .. and it was even better because my daughter painted and dark waxed it for me ! We distressed the edges a little bit and she put a couple coats of the dark wax on...The other side of the table has a drawer that we either need to paint the knobs  , or get new knobs for ..they are silver. Isn't it great ! There is lots of grey in the furniture so the blue grey is a great accent ..

A Little Fall Wreath


Hello friends!
My daughter stitched this Country Cottage Needleworks Seasonal Celebrations ( the top portion only) and I finished it into a wreath for her. We had used this wreath for the Summer chart , using ribbon to tie it to the wreath....but I thought it would be better to use burlap for the background and add sheet metal to the back of the stitching and a magnet to the burlap for easy changing out for the seasons..
She hangs the wreath on the hutch in her kitchen.. The fall leaves are just stuck into the wreath not glued so they can also be changed.
There is a piece of sticky board with burlap.. on top of that is a magnet.. I mounted the stitched piece to sticky board and also the plaid homespun to another piece of sticky board. Those 2 pieces were glued together..I use hot glue.. and then a small piece of sheet metal to the back of that.  That way each season can be switched up in about 2 minutes!
There is a new video ...click the link below!

Fresh from The Farm


Good morning friends!
Another wreath got made yesterday and look at how wonderful it is! This is my daughters stitching of Farm Fresh  from Country Cottage Needleworks.. stitched on 28 count tea/coffee dyed evenweave .
so.. my daughter had the fresh produce sign..I hot glued that to the wreath , Then I mounted the stitching on sticky needlework board , and mounted some homespun black and tan check to another piece of sticky board and glued them together. I attached it to the back of the sign with a strip of fabric , and then needed something more secure so I used the sticks you put into cake pops to hold both pieces together. Use what you have ...right ? :)
I used burlap wired ribbon, pieces of ripped homespun , some greenery, sunflowers and the green thistle branches to make the bow .. This is going to hang in her kitchen ..originally we were just going to hang the stitching from the sign but I think the wreath looks amazing and will be a really beautiful addition to her kitchen.. Thanks so much for your visit,,, we are off to the Wisconsin State Fair today ...hope the rain  holds off for us!

Chelsea's Chalkboard


Good morning!
Yesterday I my youngest son and I had a lunch "date" and after that we drove up to visit my daughter.. (she lives about 40 minutes away) ..So while I was there she wanted her chalkboard drawn.. and this is what I came up with ..She requested a truck and chickens.. and only had regular white chalk and sidewalk chalk for the colors.. where is the eye rolling emoji :)
The chalkboard is just molding my son in law cut to make a frame and attached to the wall with chalkboard paint painted directly on the wall. It's big about 6 feet by 3 feet!
Love it ..I need to get busy and change up my truck chalkboard!
Hope you have a great day!

August ..August..August!


It's August! This summer is flying by!
I stitched up this Classic Colorworks , Little House Needleworks Sampler Months August , and decided I wanted to use it in my foyer instead of the tiered tray in the kitchen.
So I went to Michael's and found this wood crate with chicken wire on the front .. and I just loved how it looked and the fact that I can fill it with florals to correspond with each month! I added 2 magnets to the chicken wire and a piece of sheet metal to the back of the mounted stitching.. easy to change out for the coming months. Won't it be pretty filled with fall florals and winter florals!?!
I did change some of the floss colors and the ones I used are shown above.. Looking forward to having this little crate to change out with the months!

Sunflowers and Bees Project


Hello friends!
I finished stitching this Country Cottage Needleworks Sunflowers In Summer last week and got around to the finishing today!

I mounted it on sticky board ..then mounted a piece of black homespun check for the backing and glued them together.. I used sunflowers from Hobby Lobby and burlap ribbons for the bow. I added some of the homespun for  the bow also. 
Oh my gosh I just love it! And I love the fact that I finished it because it was started in 2016 for Stitchmaynia!
My sofa table in the family room is all sunflowers and bees.. perfect for this last month of summer!
and in case you haven't heard my daughter and I did a Youtube video about our stitching.. come check us out and please subscribe!
