Summer Saturday

Whoo hoo! My silks arrived from Hand Dyed Fibers today and I can hardly wait to start stitching with them. I also ordered one of the 35 ct linen grab bags in neutrals and the picture above is what I received. I am so excited to finally have some cross stitch fabric stash. These are super lovely and you can see I got a nice assortment of colors.

I finished this patriotic pillow today. As I was putting out my decorations for the 4th of July this year I realized I had NO patriotic cross stitch pieces. It just so happens that Handcrafts Online
was having a wonderful free shipping 4th of July sale and I snapped up the chart for this. She also sent along a free floss and a Patriotic Prairie Schooler pattern which I plan to have stitched before our next Independence Day rolls around.

Oooooooo...those silks are beautiful.

I just finished a Land That I Love too, but mine was from Shepherd's Bush. Yours is adorable.

I see the fabric but not the silks, lol
You got alot more of the 35ct then me. I only received four colors in my grab(I had to go back at my blog and see to remember), lol. I just started a fall design last night on one of them.
I love the darling BOAF pillow finish.
