Sweet Freedom....

~ Greetings and Warm Welcome ~
my friends

It's getting close to Fire-cracker time and being that I'm a honorary Yankee Doodle Dandy...
I have a few patriotic themed pretties to share with you today....

This is from an older leaflet entitled "Something Old, Something New" from Little House Needleworks. I stitched it in the called for colors on 32 ct. raw linen and finished it as a Drum Pinkeep. 

Would you like to know how I make my drums? Well then, interested parties may tune in HERE

I also have fell in love at first sight when I saw this sweetie stitched and finished in person at a gathering last winter....so I snapped up the pattern and pulled it out on a recent vacation that my family enjoyed last week. I put the final stitches in last evening and finished it all the way up this afternoon. May I introduce:

This one I did up my own way using 32 ct. hand-dyed by ME linen its a soft blue-gray color and so darling with the colors that I chose for my conversion. (You will note if you see the pattern cover photo - that my conversion is a little brighter and a little deeper in tones) I LOVE how it turned out. My conversion may be found HERE

Both were sweet, quick projects that you can stitch up and finish creatively to snuggle in your Patriotic displays!

Until the next time...
have a fabulous, safe, fun 4th of July!!!

Love and hugs in stitches...
