A Couple of Patriotic Finishes and a Very Bare Tree

Greetings Friends,
 I hope this finds everyone well and finding time to stitch.  I have been busy finishing the school year but have found some time to stitch and finish a couple of patriotic designs.  I love stitching for the 4th of July.  I found the wire tree pictured below at a lawn and garden show a couple of weeks ago.  I knew it had to come home with me.  It looks a little bare but I have a few more patriotic designs to finish that will hang proudly on the branches.  I also found some cute patriotic ornaments at Hobby Lobby to help fill in the empty spaces.

I've also been keeping up with my Santa's Village.  I love the piece but am a bit tired of stitching houses.  I'm motivated to keep up with it so hopefully I'll be able to stay on track.

I hope your summer is shaping up to be a good one.  In a few weeks I'm off on a shop hop with a dear friend who will be visiting.  We plan to hit several shops around the Chicago area.  Look out, here we come.  I don't have any other plans this summer besides stitching and getting this house in order.

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments.  I love hearing from you and thank you for spending a small slice of your day with me.

Keep on stitchin',
