You can find this metal bucket at Hobby Lobby. It was $15 but I used my 40%off coupon.
I like the fact that it is red so I can use it for Christmas. Also, it only requires one magnet on the back of your stitching as it will attach to the metal. I have found with my earth magnets that it is best to add a washer to the piece, then glue on the magnet. Those magnets are SO strong. I had to watch a video on You Tube to find out how to slide those suckers apart!
My kitchen hutch is looking very patriotic.
I found two of these candle holders at Yesteryears of Tennga the last time I was at Grimmwood. I knew they would be perfect for my drums.
I also worked on all my WIPs this week.
I have to admit that this is one of my favorites.
Just a little work on this one.
Not much more to do on this one.
Another Abby Rose Design.
My June Word Play by Brenda Gervais. I am changing some of the flosses.
Brenda's style is a bit more Prim than my own tastes.
Joshua's birth sampler.
And my last patriotic stitch...
Where Liberty Dwells...I am changing almost all of the colors on this one.
I am doing black eyed Susans versus the charted Daisies.
I did order this floss pack from The Fat Quarter Shop and I have used it on Long May She Wave.
It was nice to have some patriotic colors that I could use on several different charts.
My only haul this week was this bag...also from The Fat Quarter Shop.
My stitching friend, Sandy and I have decided we are the Real Housewives of Cross Stitch...Flora Bama. :)
Once my Patriotic stitches are done I will be moving on to Fall pieces. Also I plan to participate in Jolly July with Chelsea and Priscilla. I have a basket full of Christmas ornament charts that I hope to finish in July. It really will be Christmas in July!
