Three fully finished stitches today

Iwas waiting on an Etsy delivery today from StarryNightsStudioCo.    I had a couple smalls I wanted to finish on fabric covered boards or easels or something and was looking for ideas – Etsy is a great place for inspiration – and had originally intended to make my own.  I haven’t done a fabric covered board or easel yet but there are great tutorials.  However, when I came across that Etsy store I absolutely fell in love with one of the fabrics she offered in an easel.  But thought no, I have hoards of fabric here but I couldn’t get that fabric out of my mind.  I really wanted it to finish off my June Cross Stitch Camp Winter Bird stitch.  So, after thinking about it a couple days I decided to just order it.  And, since it would have been lonely shipping alone, I ordered a couple other finishing things and I’m glad I did.  They are all so well made.

The Winter Bird one is finished but it’s under a stack of books letting the glue dry so I’ll show you that tomorrow.  But here’s the other two I finished.

BBD owl

This is a easel – there is a front fabric covered chip board and a back fabric covered one and there is a ribbon that attaches the two on the bottom so it will stand up properly.  This one was a premade one so it came with the wired ribbon and leaf button on the top.    I really wanted to use this easel for the owl stitch so I had to cut the foam core I attached it to so it was tight against the edge of the stitching, There’s only about 1/4″ of the fabric board showing around the edges on the front but I like the way it turned out.  And it will be easy to pack away if not in season since it just folds flat.

The second one fully finished is my June Stitch Camp Project Memorial Weekend stitch.   For this one I got one of the wooden block houses that came finished with a gingham fabric covered board on the front.  I had a chose of fabric cover.   I love how this looks – again I didn’t leave any border around my stitch piece but stretched it so the edges of the stitch were right at the edge of my foam core.  And that peak of the house was just perfect for a little something so I glued my wooden eagle needle minder to it.  I love how this turned out as well.
