Stars and Stripes Box

Hello Friends!

The patriotic finishes keep coming! Today I finished Stars and Stripes design into a box top.  I liked that the box had a primitive look and feel to it already and I just lucked out on the colors coordinating well.


The stitched piece is mounted to some patriotic fabric I had in my stash.  I went back and forth on whether or not it needed "more" but I really don't want to take away from the design so I think I'll stick with it for awhile.


STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: Stars and Stripes
Designer: Little House Needleworks

Colors Used: 
DMC: 3777, 924, 3364, 3052, 3031, 434, 746



In other stitchy news, I finally got to visit Stitcher's Paradise in Vegas! My husband and I popped up to the Strip on Thursday and Friday for a quick visit and I was pleasantly surprised when Google Maps told me SP was soooo close to where I was staying. 

The shop itself is smaller than the Attic (my LNS in AZ), but it was PACKED with supplies and beautifully stitched models. I could have spent hours just examining all of them. They were also running a storewide 15% off sale because its their 15th year anniversary, so I'm happy to announce I actually won on my Vegas trip! :)


Thanks for stopping by!

Your Stars and Stripes piece looks fabulous on the box top. I do like the less is more finish of it. Good for you on your visit to Stitcher's Paradise! Did you make any purchases? Have a wonderful Sunday!
