My busy needle....


My needle has been busy this past
week stitching smalls.


Aury "Patriotic Heart 2011"

WDW & Victorian Motto

Finally got around to stitching this freebie and
hope to finish into a box top.

Threadwork Primitives "Happy 4th"

Another great design from Nan.  I did 
make a little change in the berries.

Homespun Elegance "Crow Patriotic"

Just love the crow and flag!

Nothing says summer like sunflowers and watermelon.

HIH "Summer Bird"

I still need to sew the little bee button on but
love this little birdie too!

Now I just have to figure out the
finishing on some of these
... hmmm...
think I will stew on it a little longer.

I think I have had my fill of smalls for now. 
Off to see what I can get my needle into next.

Thanks for visiting!
