a few more flags

It is so dang hot here today...hubby was helping me move some of these things out into the sun room so I could get pics, and about halfway through, about to faint, we gave up! So while this is not all of the rest of my patriotic stitching, it is a little more, for your viewing pleasure ;-)



as you can see, a lot of it is not "finished"...need to work on that!



Looking at the picture below, here's some information, from left to right in each row
back row:Blackbird Designs Home of the Brave , Carriage House Samplings Long May She Wave;
2nd row: Shepherd's Bush Olde Glory, Birds of a Feather Land I Love, Blackbird Designs Stars & Stripes
3rd row: Handwork America Pillow, Shepherd's Bush Peace for All
4th row: Blackbird Designs Union Forever, Ewe & Eye & Friends Liberty Days




and a few of the framed ones....



On the left, in the back, is Lizzie Kate's Land I Love, and all the rest are from Bent Creek kits, except for the bottom left one, which is from Chessie & Me and is called Love Liberty.



All of the links I've posted are just convenient ones I found online, for easy reference, I am not affiliated with any one of them, or promoting their website :)




Thanks for visiting. I appreciate each and every one of you, especially the sweetie-pies that leave comments ;-)

I leave you today with some fat pug legs, these belonging to Muttley...



Smile!

You have got some wonderful patriotic pieces Andrea. I really like each and every one of them. I wish I could discipline myself to do some of these. I see what you've done and wish they were all mine!

Andrea said...

thank Nancy..the fabric I used for Union Forever was 29 count Cottonfields Glenshee...it was a dream to stitch on!

Deborah said...

The finishes are great! The pug legs brought a smile to my face.

Natasha said...

you have got some lovely pieces there, I just bought Old Glory off Evil Bay I cant wait to stitch it.

I love it when dogs strech out like that, its so darn cute.

I hope ya'll get some relief from the heat. I remember growing up when it was so hot we could barley stand it my mom would run cool water in the tub and I would just sit in it with all my toys it was a great way to beat the heat. It was usually to hot to even be out in the sprinkler LOL

Take Care

I love your patriotic finishes. I have every one of those charts in my own stash, but have only stitched three of them, so far, where do you find the time? LOVE Muttley's little bottom end, reminds me of my Boo Boo's rear view. He's a frenchie but he has the same chubby little "pork chops." Too cute!!

Nancy said...

A wonderful group of patriotic finishes, and they're all so pretty! Those little pug legs are the cutest!

Jan said...

Andrea, thanks bunches for sharing all of the patriotic finishes! I am going to do my guestroom over in patriotic, I found a beautiful quilt for the bed, so of course, I have to go with that theme! Darn it all...I just love the american flag and now more then ever I think we need to love our country and show our patriotism!

natalie said...

I'm totally coveting these! They're all so great! I might have to steal them...all of them...will you part with any of the charts?

Karen said...

Those are all beautiful! You have such a great collection!

Sharon said...

What a fantastic collection of patriotic stitching. They are all so different but what they all have in common is the beautiful bright colours that are so eye catching and the pleasure you obviously felt when stitching these lovely designs.
Thanks for sharing them with us.

What a great array of patriotic stitching. A wonderful sense of pride, I am sure, when stitching and displaying.
Cute legs, but love the butt. My Basset stretches out like that. Must be a dog thing!
Thanks for sharing your collection.

Terri said...

I love your blog. Your work is incredible. So professional!! You were saying how hot it is there. Seattle has been overcast each morning and warming up to the 70s in the afternoons. That's fine with me as I get sick when it gets over 85.

crazylady said...

Looks like my pugs butt and legs. Could they be twins? Love your stitching it is gorgeous and so productive.
