Day 3 of Summer and we finally have some sunshine!!! Yeah! I decided it's time to do some patriotic stitching before July gets here. Doesn't this look like a fun stitch? After I get the first star stitched, I won't need my pattern until I get to the wording. The star is just repeated over and over to form our beautiful American flag. The pattern is from Sam Sarah Design Studio; I have changed some of the flavors as I usually do. Also, I picked up a book at the thrift store called "America the Beautiful", it's an interesting read about how the song came about and how the words have been reworked a few times. I will give you an update on this book at a later date. The quote for today is "A smile is a curved line that sets things straight". Until next time, have fun stitching!
