Happy 4th of July!

Hello!  :)

Happy 4th of July!!!  :)


I did it! I finished my patriotic pillows before the 4th! Yea!  :)


Okay I'll admit I didn't finish them until 11:00pm but hey I made it!  ;)  I would have finished them sooner but I ran out of stuffing and had to go get more.

Here's a closer look at the pillows . . .

"Americana Heart" Designed by Joy of the Needle

"July Stamp Flip-It" Designed by Lizzie Kate

This last one is the first complete finish of the 12 monthly stamp pillows. One down only eleven of these left to go!  ;)

I hope you have a Happy 4th of July! Stay safe!  :)

Until next time . . .

These are terrific. I love the combination of cross stitch and sewing. I do both myself. Truly festive pillows!
