My Patriotic Room...

~ Greetings and Warm Wishes ~
to all my wonderful stitching friends and buddies!
I hope this finds you all well!

I have been promising some of you...
a tour of my Patriotic Room.
So I thought I'd do a little post on it today.

Our Patriotic Room is the front room of our home. On our house plans it was to be a formal dining room, I'm not formal and with the family the size of ours, it is nice to have a room where you can house the computers, a homework desk, keep the important papers, etc. So we wired the room to be our computer/office/quiet room.

Here's a video...just click on it :)

Here is how I have tipped my hat to my great country in said room:

My beautiful room...
and the love of my country...only eclipsed by my love for my family and creator.

I have SO many more pieces on deck to stitch and put inside these four walls. CAN'T WAIT to make it even MORE patriotic and MORE beautiful! Wonderful designs by: Lila's Studio, The Scarlett House, Plum Street Samplers, Little House Needleworks, Country Cottage Needleworks...
THANK YOU! to so many designers that put out gorgeous designs to inspire and fuel my patriotism!

If you are an American, stop today and reflect on all the many, many freedoms we enjoy because of what our flag represents: 50 UNITED states and those freedoms that were won for us by the blood and sacrifice of our fellow countrymen.

BE the change...
Love your neighbor as yourself...
Kindness matters...
You never know what someone is carrying, share the load by sharing a smile...
and may God continue to bless me...
my family...
my country and 
my friends....

Hugs in Stitches,
