**Fireworks Stocking**

Greetings to everyone this fine HOT Tuesday~~~ I just wanted to show you the cutest little stocking I received in yesterday's mail.....Due to a HUGE thunderstorm, I was unable to take a snap until this afternoon......... I have never seen anything made up using Waterlilies "Fireworks" floss....But, lucky for me, Rebecca had my name in a little BBD exchange that a few of us were in and I am here to show it off today!~~ What a great addition to my patriotic tree in the craft room Rebecca~~~~I am totally in love with how this coloration streams through with those fabulous patriotic shades... Amazing~ Rebecca also mentioned that she tries to collect pearl buttons when on her scavenger hunts and although my picture doesnt diplay it very well, she attached the ribbon with a vintage pearl button.... Love that idea too~~~


Well, I need to get in the kitchen folks~~ Although it was our first Teacher Workday back today, I am still very tired~ Whew!! This getting back in a routine thing is going to be interesting~~ **Happy Stitching** Faye
