It's a Good Morning!

Actually, it was a good evening because I finished this WIP that I started last summer! I really like the way it turned out...lovin' the combo of the slightly variegated red floss and the really blotchy fabric. (You can read here about how I dyed the fabric.)



Good Morning freebie
by Ria Lanser (Grandma's Kitchen), OOP
fabric: misc "staci-dyed" remnant
fiber: Victorian Motto in Red G


And I've started Coffin Buzz, also a freebie, by Plum Street Samplers...

I'm using WDW Mocha and another linen remnant I hand-dyed, and really liking the way it's turning out!


Michele is also stitching Coffin Buzz (over 1!). And she sent me her Rise and Shine pattern so that I can stitch it (hers turned out so cute that I have to copy it!)

Has anyone noticed a theme going on with some of my recent stitching??? I want to decorate the wall behind my kitchen table with "morning" themed stitcheries. I want to have it done by the end of summer. HEY, quit laughing (I can hear you guys snorting at me, lol!) I have 3 done, one in progress, and 4 (maybe 5) more that I'd like to do. But I could always use the 3 and call it done, LOL!

Thanks for stopping by, your visits always make my day!!!

You always seem to pick freebies that I would never be attracted to from the chart alone, but after you stitch them I up, I immediately want to start stitching them too.

Great job on the rooster. The breakfast wall sounds like a very cool idea for the kitchen.

You KNOW I LOVE your rooster!! Too cute!! and what an awesome theme for your kitchen:) (I'm going to stitch "Rise and Shine" one of these days too!) We don't have a lot of wall space in our kitchen, but I'm filling our laundry room with roosters and chickens since our house is French Country:)

Beautiful progress on "Coffin Buzz" too!

(hey, you should be receiving a little something, something from me on Thursday;)

Love your rooster freebie finish! It turned out great and love the compliment of the linen and the floss. Good start on Coffin Buzz. That one's on my to-do list!

What a great rooster! And your tombstone is looking good. It makes me want a cup of coffee myself, but decaf since caffeine makes the nursing ladybug buzzed all day!

Gabi said...

The rooster is adorable. Love your fabric too. And Coffin Buzz is a great little chart. I should do that one myself too...lol...coffee addict as I am. And that fabric looks fantastic as well.

Andrea said...

I just love your little rooster, it's adorable! And your idea for the morning themed wall is a great one! I have several roosters in my stash hollering at me, so I can see something similar in my walls future! The Coffin Buzz is coming along nicely!

Michele said...

Wow! Super great work! Love the red...

Gwen said...

Love the rooster and the fabric colors. I finished Rise and Shine by Bent Creek, now to have it framed. I have searched the website for the rooster. I can not find him.
Please e-mail me with location if possible. gwen19072002@yahoo.com
Thanks Gwen

Brigitte said...

Oh my, Staci, such a lovely finish. And your WIP looks great, too.

Maren said...

I love your rooster! I think decorating your wall in morning themes is a good goal, and by the end of the summer is an excellent time period. Um...which summer are you aiming for specifically? This one, or the next? :)

Hazel said...

Love your red rooster. I'd love to see your wall when it's finished. x

Carla said...

Lovely stitching! Both pieces look great!

pj said...

Rooster is darling but I can't get the pattern either. In fact, I do get some Explorer error when I try to get into that blog. Can you share with us the link, Staci? Great red color!!! Thanks...pj

Hi Staci,
Love the rooster, but I also could not locate the pattern. I look at Grandma's Kitchen fairly often and have only copied the "Odd Socks" from there. Would you mind telling me where you located the rooster?
Thanks so much - your projects are inspiring!
Thanks, Lori

Teri said...

I love the rooster, and "coffin buzz" is also on my list to stitch. As for your "morning" wall, not only do I know you can accomplish all the stitching this summer, but my guess is that your beautiful "morning" work will far surpass one wall! Can't wait to see more!!

Thank you!

I can't find the freebie either. I have looked the entire site over. She has wonderful items on her blog, but no rooster. My sister's house is full of roosters and I would love to do this for her. Any links would be greatly appreciated. Staci your blog is wonderful.
