Land that I Love

As Memorial Day is in sight, I decided to get out some of my Patriotic Stitches.


My new doughbowl that I found at Yesteryears in Tennga, Ga. It was a birthday gift from my mother. I filled it with my patriotic ladies from the Little House Needleworks Patriots Series.  I love how it turned out. I also added the flag from Hands on Design's Knee High by the Fourth of July.



This Pewter Bowl is perfect for the center of my Dining Room table.


My Brenda Gervais Corner on the Breakfast Bar.  I changed both of them up a bit but I love them! Brenda's company is With Thy Needle and Thread.

I will have my Patriotic stitches on Display until the middle of July when I will change it up a bit before going full FALL! And I cant believe I am even anticipating Autumn but the way the days are flying by it will be here before we know it.

And speaking of Patriotism....the winner of the patriotic yard flag is Linda at Ramblings of a Retired Lady. Linda if you would send me your snail mail address ( agrimm55@hotmail.com) I will get your flag in the mail to you. Thanks to all who commented. I had 13 entries and I enjoyed reading everyone's favorite cookie. I think my favorite cookie is Chocolate Oatmeal Unbaked Cookies. It was the first sweet that I learned to make in 4 H many years ago and they are so good that I can eat a whole batch by myself!! Thankfully all of my family members enjoy them too so I have to share.

Ahhh.. 4-H. It brings back wonderful memories. I still have my 4-H certificates and my recipe for brownies that they gave us.
I am in completely in love with all three of the vignettes for patriotism. That dough bowl is just the right size. The pewter bowls smalls are just perfect for it and I am still in process on Lady Liberty. Seeing it makes me want to pull it back out and get her done. I love all of it.

Your patriotic needlework is beautiful. I like how you have displayed them together in groupings. I agree - the seasons are whipping by so fast that we need to celebrate each one while it's here because it will be gone quickly!

I was in 4H for a few years and loved it, my Mother was our leader. How can you tease us with the cookie and not share the recipe???

All your vignettes are just wonderful. Isn't decorating a dough bowl fun? I bought on of the new ones for HL and aged it a bit. Still on a quest for the real thing. Love your Liberty Lady from WTNT!! OH, my, she is my favorite designer and I missed that one!!

Your stitchery is always so beautifully displayed, Arlene. The dough bowl is just gorgeous. I have wanted one for a long time now and Friday night at the auction they had one they auctioned off. I bid on it but I quit at $20. I should have continued because the woman who got it paid $25. It was really old and had all of the character of an old one. Oh well...maybe another time. :)

Isn't it fun to decorate dough bowls, as well as all the other nooks and crannies in our homes, with cross stitched treasures? Your patriotic stitching is wonderful, very inspiring!
