And an FFO...
I put the rick rack on the drum but I left off the beads. I am so glad I took the drum with me to Hobby Lobby as this orange is definitely more yellow orange. It reminds me of the colors in the 64 count Crayola box. I am sure there was a yellow orange just this color. On the left is my Weatherwise by Prairie Schooler. They look nice together.
I got a good bit done on Souvenirs of the Heart.
I am stitching this one over one on 32 count Oaken from Jen's Stitching Niche. I tried to stitch with two strands but it was very bulky. I find that 32 counts can vary a great deal. Sometimes I can use two strands of floss, other times just one. I am loving this little red house.
I got out my July 4th stitches....
Metal buckets are great for displaying stitched pieces.
This sits on my breakfast bar but the back of the vignette faces the sink. I decided to pretty it up a bit as well.
My friend, Gina sent me the Summer card that she crafted. The Liberty is a cross stitch card from blog friend, Barbara. I popped another patriotic stitch on the back of the bucket holding the flags. Now I have something pretty to look at as I do my kitchen duties.
A big blue bowl full of patriotic goodness. It sits on my dining room table.
Fourth of July Hoopla on the tea cart.
It is fun to move things around from year to year. Happy Stitching!
