I recently finished up our stitch-along. It was Kind Words Never Die from Heartstring Samplery.
It was a fun stitch and I’m so happy I stitched it. I fully finished mine this weekend and will be showing that off to you soon.
With the finish of one, it’s time to announce the next stitch along. This one comes from Jeannette Douglas. Well, it’s actually three from Jeannette Douglas. This stitch-along is fun in that you can pick, one, two, or all three charts to stitch. We are offering.
Chubby Bunny, Chubby Bird, and Chubby Fox.
The first of the series was Chubby Bunny. It came out at market, last year I believe. I had wanted to stitch it but then decided to wait as I thought it would be a fun project for the stitch along. Well…as spring came around this year, we realized that Jeannette Douglas had come out with some other “chubby” patterns. Liz and I couldn’t decide which to offer so we decided to offer all three. You can pick which one you want to stitch.
I, of course, couldn’t decide which one to stitch so I decided to stitch all three.
They are so cute and I’ll have the Bunny and Bird for my Spring dough bowl and the Fox for my Fall dough bowl. I think they are so cute.
Remember the frame from Dollar General that I bought for finishing Kind Words Never Die? Well, I think that would work for this project as well. I plan to finish one of the projects with one of those frames.
I also bought a tart pan from Amazon that I might use for finishing. You can see them HERE.
I think you would need to stitch on 40 count linen to make the frame and tart pan work for finishing.
Another finishing idea is this…Liz finished hers like this. Isn’t it a cute big strawberry? There are many ways to finish these. The one you see below is Chubby Bird.
These little charts use a lot of different threads but only use a tiny amount of the thread. Liz was so good and made up thread cards for our stitching. This way you can get all the threads without having to buy full skeins. It makes stitching the projects more affordable!!
I love that Liz went through all the work to do that.
For ordering, you can go HERE. You will need to get the chart of your choice, the thread pack for your project, and the linen. I have a lot of linen scraps to use up so I think I’m going to do that…I haven’t decided for sure.
Here’s the good news, these will ship right away. Liz has everything ready and wants to get the packages out before they leave for Spring Needlework Market in Nashville at the end of the month. We’ll start stitching on March 1st. That will give everyone plenty of time to get their order.
There is even more good news. Liz is having a Superbowl Sale at the shop. If you order on Sunday the 10th, you get 20% off. YAHOO!! Who doesn’t love a sale??
I didn’t know about the sale and ordered a couple of weeks ago. I ordered this cute new one from With Thy Needle and Thread.
I ordered this one too. I think both will be perfect for my dough bowl.
I have to admit…I might order a couple of things that have been on my wish list…or maybe some thread to stitch these…Hmm. The store is so big and so full of goodies. 20% off is so-so tempting!!
My Sunday plan is to do a cross stitch organization and maybe put in an order…just a little one??! We’ll see.
I hope you’ll stitch along with me and stitch the Chubby Bird, Chubby Bunny, or Chubby Fox. I think I’ll start with the Chubby Bunny so I have it for my Spring dough bowl. If you missed the link to order, you can find it HERE. Which is your favorite??
