Mini Fruity Popsicles Counted Cross Stitch Artiste

In August, I shared a new Cross Stitch project that I had started. I have finished this piece and started a new one, but I haven't stitched much in the past month or so. I did share on Instagram the thread colors for my new project, if you want to take a look. I hope to snap a pic to share with you soon. In the meantime, I wanted to write a quick post to share my thoughts on stitching the popsicles.

When I started this project, I thought it would be a quick stitch, but it wasn't as quick as I thought. This pattern is more detailed than it looks in the images, but I really enjoyed watching it come together. It was definitely a fun way to end the summer and I'm looking forward to working on my next piece that has warm colors.

I was so excited to start backstitching this piece so that I could complete it that I totally forgot to take a picture before I started.

I love how the fruit was designed in this piece and the colors the designer used. I had no issues with the thread breaking and there was plenty to use. The popsicle on the right stitched up faster for me than the one on the left.

I purchased this kit in the clearance section at Hobby Lobby, but I did find one online for you on Amazon if you are interested. It's called Mini Fruity Popsicles by Artiste.

If you have stitched this piece, I would love for you to share it in the comments!

Happy Stitching!

Autumn Fall Tiered Tray Decor

Summer has flown by way too fast! When I was younger, I would spend all day outside in the Summer and it felt like summer break was much longer. Now that Autumn is in the air and the leaves are starting to fall, I'm getting excited about the cooler weather.

Leaves Are Falling

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I made a trip to Dollar Tree and I picked up a couple of kitchen towels, but I also snagged these Autumn and Halloween signs. I noticed they had pumpkins, fall flowers and scarecrows as well.

Now, I'm totally regretting not picking up a few of the fall decor pieces they had because I've seen so many super cute tiered tray ideas. My ideal tiered tray would have mini signs, fall leaves, miniature Cross Stitch pieces, scarecrows and pumpkins. There are so many decor options for tiered trays and they can be redecorated for every season.

Cross Stitch WIP and Adorable Kitchen Towels

Last week my hubby and I took a trip to the Dollar Tree across town and picked up a few things. We have one a couple minutes away from us, but the one we went to last week is much larger. We picked up a few items such as medicine, cat food, cleaning supplies, a couple of fall plaques and these super cute kitchen towels.

Adorable Kitchen Towels

I visited their website to see if they had these particular towels available, but they didn't have the refrigerator towel available. They do have the blue/green towels that I purchased along with other super cute towels. Some of the available designs are Halloween, Fall, Kitchen Sentiments, Coffee and more. There is a required purchase of one case, but some of them have a set with different prints or you can give them away as gifts.

We also found this cute coffee cup plaque for my mom to use on her desk at work.

KraftsbyKatelyn has a tutorial on her super cute farmhouse fall sign that she made using the coffee cup. She is so talented!

Last but not least is my Cross Stitch WIP. I'm working on one of the kits I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby called Mini Fruity Popsicles by Artiste. I thought I would be able to stitch this one up quickly because of the size, but it's quite detailed. I think it's turning out to be super cute!

I hope you're having a great week!
