Stitching Saturday

Todays Stitching features some Patriotic Pieces.

I finished Abigail Adams only to find I had stitched it on a 36 count fabric so it is quite a bit smaller than Martha Washington and Betsy Ross.

Oh well....I will make Molly Pitcher a bit smaller as well and they can all nestle together in this pretty pewter bowl.

Here is my Tea Cart decked out for the Summer. Marvin's father collected the Bradbury Plates that were released in 1976 in honor of the Bicentennial and I kept this one ( if you zoom in you will see it is Betsy Ross presenting the flag to the founding fathers.)  I stitched Freedom several years ago and it is still a favorite.

Here is my summer Dough Bowl. After the 4th, I will change it up to something more summery.  The pretty card you see to the left was made by my blog friend, Gina.

On the Breakfast Bar...I also added those three mason jars from the Dollar Tree to this vignette. It gave it a pop of color.

I am doing a few more summer stitches then I will proceed to fall and Christmas projects.  As one of my favorite Floss Tuber says...Just Keep Stitching!

I like the Uncle Sam!

All of it looks great and I think the idea of two smaller ones is perfect. Love the vignette with the plate.

It is all just beautiful, Arlene! The dough bowl, the vignette with the plate, the Dollar Tree mason jars ... just beautiful and so patriotic. I need to work on collecting (or creating) a few patriotic items, as I have very few.
