Celebrating Memorial Day....

Heart in Hand "Olde Glory"
stitched on 32 ct. coffee-dyed linen w/ recommended threads

A quick post this morning to share a finish. I stitched this one last week and finished it yesterday. I decided to finish as a little pin pillow but will most likely add it to my the display in my office. This was a cute design to stitch.

Happy Memorial Day.....we start summer school today (ugh!) so I will be working. Hope everyone has a wonderful day and happy stitching....
