A Patriotic finish for me!

Hello everyone this Saturday night... Like many of you, it's blistering hot here in the Carolina's.... Stormy too!

I share the love of all things Americana.... Especially this time of year~ Between finishing for you guys, I manage to sneak in my own stitching and finishing.... Here's my latest stitch.... I fell in love with the verse, the overdyes and those blossoms...

Heartstring Samplery designs, by Beth Twist, will usually capture my eye and this design was no exception.... I stitched with the specified overdyes on 40 count coffee dipped creme linen... It's a nice size~ approximately 6" x 6"..... Which made me want to finish it flat so to lean on my easel.....

I wanted the edge to be simple... I doubled a length of twine, twisted it with my corder and attached to the edging.... Simple is often better~

 

A fairly quick stitch, I am thankful to have this addition to my stitched Patriotic pieces.....

 

I have a few stitched designs I've been working on and hope to do a blogpost each day for the next week~ I love adding to my collection because I leave them out year round to enjoy.....


Hoping everyone's weekend is going well....... Happy stitching~

Faye, I like the way you finished this and it looks really nice on the easel. I just received this chart today and can't wait to start mine. Like you, I seem to be on a patriotic roll lately. Enjoy your stitching!!

It's gorgeous, Faye! Are you beaching it, this week? We decided to stay at the lake for the 4th this year. Hope yours is a happy one!

The twisted twine is the perfect finishing touch to this lovely piece.

Faye ... Your work is stunning to say the least. I was wondering about the easel shown. Do you sell them? It is such a beautiful piece to display needlework on.
