Obsessed with Stitching Housewives

Valentine's cross-stitching is one of my favorite subjects.  This February I have stitched several cute designs from Stitching Housewives.  They are all stitched on14 count chalkboard black Aida, 2 threads o we one in DMC that is an option in the pattern.  They finish about 3 inches by 4 inches.  I altered Valentine Lane from the original pattern.  Here are the pictures:

Blackbird Designs

When I purchased the Blackbird Designs book Souvenirs of Summer I knew what I wanted to stitch first the pattern Summer Song.  I did use the listed DMC conversion in the book.  I donthink that colors may have changed a bit but it still will make a lovely piece to display.  Stitched on coffee/ tea dyed Aida 16 count 2 threads over one.  

A Summer Project

The Stitching Housewives have a cute, very quick cross-stitch project that can be found in Priscilla's blog as a free pattern.  It is. Celebration of summer that when fully finished will look as adorable!  I just love sunflowers.  
I used Classic Colorworks Black Coffee and Queen Bee, DMC 3371, 3341, and 712.  stitched on 14 count chalkboard back Aida fabric 2 strands over one.  

Fall Update

This is a quick post about cross-stitching I have finished.  This adorable pattern is by Stitching Housewives.  I stitched 2 threads over one in 14 count chalkboard back Aida.  The flosses include Classic Coloworks Pea Pod, DMC 920, 976, 783, 869, 712, 975, and 841.  A fast stitch and it will be so adorable in a tiered tray as a pillow.
