Two Small Patriotic Finishes

Hello Friends!

I've been spending most of my time in the studio finishing items for other stitchers before I head off to my mini-vacation at the beginning of next month, but I did manage to get these two small patriotic finishes done this morning.


I had stitched this one before and liked it so much I stitched it again. It's finished in the same way, I just substituted the floral center for a denim cover button.

STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: Strawberries and Stripes
Designer: With Thy Needle and Thread
Strawberries & Stripes - Cross Stitch Pattern
Fabric: 28 ct Tea-dyed Evenweave Monaco
Colors Used: DMC 355, 3777, 3768, 317, 03, 3011, 3012, 3371, 3781 and White



Then I stitched this small piece from a tiny piece of its pattern, Americana Sampling from Little House Needleworks. All I did was move the "1776" over a bit to keep it centered with the stitched design and FFOed it into a flat, mounted ornament with primitive homespun fabric.

Both patriotic pieces look fabulous. Again, your stitching and the attention to details is perfection.
