early Flag day

Last week I barely got any stitching done so all updates will wait until the end of the week (at best).  I hope to have a stitching day this week-end and hopefully next week with EGA.  I hope all goes well.

Meanwhile a salute to Flag Day.

Something finished and framed

Here is something I finished (back in 2016) but didn't have framed until this spring.  It was an Internet SAL from Motifs from Old Dutch Samplers group.  There were not set colors.  So everything from from my stash.  I loved stitching this piece.   The original had every letter in a different color.  That bugged me so I changed it to  each word being it's own color instead.

I admit I really love the frame.
My framer found some great selections
