There are very few Canadian patriotic stitches out there so I usually end up adapting some of the American designs. Below are pics of the patriotic designs I've stitched so far.
|Lizzie Kate Land That I Love|
|Little House Needleworks America|
|Vee and Co O Canada|
|San- Man Originals Patriotic Heart|
In addition to my new start I spent a little time with Weeds Make Haste. I'm stitching the over 1 lettering right now and really love to stitch it outdoors because I find the light is so much better for this.
I didn't notice until I added this pic that I made a mistake on the maiden's dress. There is a border along the white portion of the dress near the bottom that I stitched right over with the white. I guess I was on a roll and just forgot all about it. Looks like I'll be doing a bit of frogging in the near future. I also changed her mouth colour and feel much better about it now.
My overdyed silk floss that I was awaiting for Fruit of the Spirit arrived yesterday. Now I just have to frog out the bunches of grapes which I've already stitched and replace them with the new floss. I really prefer the variation that the overdyes add to these and the strawberries too.
Not much else going on at the moment. It's a rainy, cool day so I plan on spending some quality time with my needle and baking up a batch of rhubarb muffins with rhubarb from our garden. Mmm!
