Finished!

Hello friends!  I put the finishing touches on Days of Liberty last night.
"Days of Liberty"
Chessie & Me
Fabric and floss as kitted
 I just love everything about this piece.  The hornbook supplied in the kit just made for the perfect finish.  You know I had to take some liberty :o) with the personalization.  Can you spot my little addition?

My friend Norma celebrated a birthday this week.  I remembered she likes the color orange so I made her this little change purse.  Wishing you many more years of health and happiness Norma!

Thank you for visiting my little neck of the web.  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.  I will leave you with these flowers I "pic'd" especially for you!

Love your finish! Did you add the bird? Cute!
My Hydrangea are nice this year too. Must be the weather because they haven't always turned out this nice. Mine are the same color as yours.
Enjoy them!

Love the cute little cardinal addition--amazing how cardinals fit in to any stitching, any time of year, isn't it? The whole finish is so sweet, Myra and your gift to Norma is very cute--what fun fabric!

This is definitely the year for hydrangeas--I was out photographing mine just yesterday :)

What a great finish! I can't spot the customization, but I can tell you I love it even though patriotic stitching isn't generally "my thing".

This Chessie and Me series is really sweet.

Beautiful flowers and gift, as well.

What a great finish, and I think the little cat ornament must be your special touch. I love the colors in it.
Do you happen to make and sell the little hand purse? I love it.
