I didn't get very much done this time, I only started the bobbins on the second row...but progress is progress!


See you soon and Happy Stitching!

After learning how to "park" my stitches working on other HAED's it felt so strange not to park and to stitch "cross-country".  I always love working on this design due to the beautiful bright colors of the floss :)


See you soon and Happy Stitching!

I really enjoy stitching this design!  First because I am a very patriotic person, and second because since it is mostly backstitch it stitches up quickly. 


See you soon and Happy Stitching!

Here is an image of someone's completed design.  Mine will be slightly different since I chose to use hand dyed floss that has a variegated effect.
