A little 4th of July Stitching!

I finished up this little freebie last night...


"Liberty for Ewe" by Sharon Crescent
Fabric: 32 ct. Light Mocha Belfast
Threads: Crescent Colours and one GAST
Started and Finished: 7/4/07




I saw this freebie on Joanne's blog yesterday and fell in love (I love sheep), and decided to stitch it right away. I had to make substitutions because I didn't have all CC required. I think it turned out pretty cute! Well, only two out of three kids stayed awake for the fireworks (Jake). He had a ton of fun watching them. We were able to stay in the living room and see them out the window. They were so loud and close because they were shooting them off only a few blocks away.

I did get a little more done on Sunflower Bellpull also. I finished the lowercase alphabet above the house.



So all in all the Fourth was a pretty relaxing day. Now it's back to work, so I'd better get to it! Write later! :)

  17. I've just found your blog when I googled 'Rowan Tipsy' - 3 years ago you were thinking of making it, did you ever do it? Your photos have all gone from then, so I can't tell! I love all your cross-stitch, so very beautiful.
