Red, White and Blue finish....

I decided to start Plum Street's
My Dearest Friend
but wanted to change the colors
to coordinate with some other
PSS stitched pieces.

Here is the original design.  It all started
with the flags and  I decided
to change the colors to be more realistic.
(FYI...there noses look so funny to me.)
After that it only seemed natural make it
more red, white and blue.

Plum Street Samplers "My Dearest Friend"
stitched on Lakeside Linen 40ct with DMC
I did omit the urn with flowers at the bottom
and I am happy with it.  This will definitely
be in the next framing trip.

Love this little horse stitched over one and
the small pop of Americana on the barn.

Thanks for all of your nice comments
on my framed goodies.  Well I'm off
to start something new to add to
the frame pile.  Next up is
"Wool Willi" from Jeannette Douglas'
A Most Notable Name Series.
Happy stitching...
