My Buzzy String

 Good morning!
I finished up my Buzzy String from Lizzie Kate this morning.. This was only 2 days of stitching .. so cute and fun  ..
 These are all the floss colors I used...
Remember Chelsea stitched the Buzzy String and I finished it for her ? Chelsea's husband had made us these boards to mount them on from some wood planks . We both have quite a few of the Lizzie Kate Strings so we can change these out because I used magnets and sheet metal ..
 It is adorable .. I haven't decided where it will go in the house but I can't wait to display it .. For now it is sitting on the dining room table waiting for this weeks flosstube!
 I used plaid homespun for the back of mine ... added a twine flower and some ribbon and torn fabric and a bee in the center.. I added it to the top of the homespun so each of the strings I stitch will have a different decoration ...
 This was my day 21 Stitchmaynia start ...

Patriotic Banners..

 Good morning!
These are the patriotic chart packs from Little House Needleworks and Classic Colorworks.. I stitched mine last spring and Chelsea stitched hers in the summer but we never got around to finishing them so here they are ! Love them!
 I used torn ruffled homespun for the edging .. I moiunted the stitching on sticky board ..added the ruffles and a Piece of fabric for hanging.. We use push pins in the top of the hutch to hold them in place.. I love the plaid on hers and might have to redo mine! :)
Mine are done with gingham homespun in the same way ...you can read more about them here 
 

 so nice that we both have these festive patriotic pieces to display!

Red, White and Blue in the Tiered Tray

 Good morning!
The Galvanized tiered tray got its yearly dose of red, white and blue yesterday! One of my favorite  spots to decorate for the seasons and holidays is this tiered tray ..

I found the tray at Sam's club 3 years ago .. you can find the tiered trays in lots of different stores now .. It will stay with this patriotic decor until about the middle of July.. 
 little flags, stars, red white and blue flowers ...red, white and blue ribbons

and of course a red, white and blue chalkboard ...

It is sitting in the middle of my kitchen table full of daisies,chickens , mason jars and all things patriotic!
Thaks so much for stopping by!

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..
 Look at that cute cow!
 Did you see her ?!? Ronnie is there behind the truck
 It is so wonderful and I can't wait to see you all stitching it!
 Thanks so much for your visit! Hope you love it!

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..****

We are having a stitch along with the hashtag #pcqueenbee ..
