Great day here today – hope everyone has a pleasant weekend and we remember those who gave their lives in defending our great country and those who have served or serve in the military today.
Just got in a box of the most darling counted cross stitch kits from Chessie & Me. They are fairly small designs that are worked on 36 ct linen fabric and include the fabric and silk floss to complete. Several of the designs are perfect for highlighting our country’s independence with 1776 or flags on them. You still have time to work one up and display for the 4th of July. They would make great little pillows or pin cushions. Another finish might be on a painted paper mache box that is hinged like a small book. I got some of those blank ones in, too, so you can customize your look.

I’ve started work on a quilt design for the All Iowa Shop Hop designed by Three Jars Full (Jennifer) that is done in black and white strips with just a touch of bright color in the borders. Think I’ll get the top pieced in time for the beginning of the hop? That would be next Thursday – come in and see 😉
