A Patriotic Sampler for Sunday

Well the framer got this sampler back to me in the nick of time for the 4th of July -a patriotic piece of stitching.

This sampler is called My Hearth & Home and is designed by Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle & Thread. I love the pretty golden yellow house and the little flags in the flower pot. And those huge tulips and that bird with the glandular problem, make my heart sing - such a happy sampler!

I personalized it by stitching the first initial of my boys, C & N, in a contrasting thread. Here is a picture of my patriotic display in my foyer -

I used my newly finished George Schnibble and made a little vignette with my flag Longaberger basket and my newest creation, a patriotic chicken - and doesn't a patriotic chicken tell you just how much I love the USA -- I really really do!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend - God bless the USA!
