Well here it is as promised, my new fridge magnet.
This makes a perfect fridge display. I need to get stitching on I love Fall most of All so it is ready for September. Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery makes the cutest designs. I used Sticky board for this one and the 8 by 10 size was perfect with some pieces left over that I can use for Christmas ornaments. I simply mounted the cross stitch on one piece, then cut a bigger piece of board for the backing piece. I had this big red and white check fabric from Fat Quarter Shop in my stash. After putting the design on one board and the red and white fabric on another I glued them together. I added a larger washer to the back of the piece then a magnet was glued to the washer. That makes it a bit sturdier. I also added some green rick rack to the bottom. I had it in my stash as well. The little Strawberry button up at the top was in my button jar.
My friend, Brenda stopped by with my May Project bag and a Project Bag I had ordered for my Kringles project.
I love the May bag with the lovely red fabric. Those little campers were just too cute to pass up.
I had book club here on Tuesday so I got out my patriotic stitches as my table was sporting Red, White and Blue. You may remember that I only stitched the Lady Patriots....they get so little praise that I wanted to celebrate their achievements. The little flag is from Knee High by the Fourth of July by Hands on Design. You can always just stitch the motifs you like in a chart....floss tube had given me such freedom in my stitching these days.
Cross Stitch can be used in so many ways. One of my book club friends said she used to stitch but she could not see to do it anymore. I showed her my magnifier....I could not stitch either without that stitching tool.
To celebrate my birthday I am doing a giveaway of three different charts. Follow the instructions below.
