I am Feeling Very Patriotic.

Finished Land of the Free the other night. I used CC and GA fibers. I didn't have all the belle soie. I think that it came out pretty good. Dropped it off at the framers this morning on my way to stitch group. The frame is an old tarnished gold color. Different.

I finished this little gal last year. My friend, Nataly is going to make it into a scissor fob for me. She does everything by hand and will bead the edges. I love how she finishes her fobs.


Started July the other night. I changed up the red and blue because the colors were too bright for me. It's coming along.

The weather has turned hot. In the upper 90's. Thank goodness it isn't going to last. Friday is back to the 70's. I hate the really hot stuff.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my last post. I appreciate them. Until next time.....Happy Stitching! Deborah
