I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

A Plethora of Patriotic Pieces

How's your July been going so far?  A little while ago I started thinking about some of the patriotic charts that I've had in my stash for quite some time, and decided it was time that they were stitched.  So here are my Four for the Fourth.

Little House Needleworks' Old Glory.
You've seen this here recently; now it's totally finished.

Blackbird Designs' In Full Glory.

Prairie Schooler's Double Eagle Sampler
from Booklet No. 8, American Primitive.
You would never guess this design is from the 80's,
would you?
Their stuff is timeless.

And here's my little display.
The Liberty Bell is also from Prairie Schooler.
They fill up my rustic box nicely.
I won't need to do any more patriotic ones.
Well, maybe I could squeeze more in next year.

My fourth piece is canvaswork...

Independence Day
from (can you guess?)
Needle Delights Originals.
This will probably be put into a box top.

Along with all these,
I've been busy filling out my
Entry Form for the Lake County Fair.
I'm entering 13 pieces this year,
but might only have 11 or 12,
because one needs tweaking
and another one isn't finished yet.
But I've got a few weeks...
famous last words.
So that's what I'll be doing this month
(along with J).

For my US friends, have a happy and safe Fourth.
Have a groovy July, everyone.

Thanks, as always, for visiting.
