I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Patriotic Stitching

I have a small patriotic finish I can show.  It's by Pine Mountain Designs:

I also started a cute patriotic freebie by Primitive Betty's:

I usually buy a few hanging flower baskets in the spring.  For some reason this year, I'm late buying them.  One day as I was walking into Walmart, I saw some sad-looking ones that weren't in a hopeless state yet so I brought a couple of them home.  (about $3.50 each!  Who says procrastination is always a bad thing?)  After some TLC deadheading them and watering them, they're not doing too badly.  So I went back to their plant section and picked up some more.  I'm calling them my "rescued" flowers.  Hopefully I won't kill them;  I don't exactly have a green thumb.

DH leaves today for a conference for work.  After I get some things accomplished here, I'm planning on a few days spent as a couch potato, stitching, reading, and watching chick flicks.

Happy stitching!
