Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

God Bless America

Hey everybody! How are you? I hope you had a wonderful, stitchy weekend. I stitched just a wee bit last night. After my husband and I hung this on the front of our home.


This is what I was creating this weekend. :) I used a pair of my blue jeans for the top of each bunting piece. I found the red with white stripe material on clearance at JoAnn. The whole project cost about $12.00, because I bought a bottle of Stiffy to use on the red fabric pieces. I applied it and wasn't all that impressed with the product I guess. I just thought maybe the bunting wouldn't flap and flip over so much.

Well anyhow, I am happy with the end results. I have noticed I am extremely close to 100 followers. I am going to give a chart away when I reach 100. :) Maybe that will be soon, keep watching.

"Little Miss Innocent"  "What cross stitch charts and fabric? I am not laying on them."
I will draw a name tomorrow for the Traveling Pattern "Bunny". If you did not enter your name for a chance to be next to stitch him, and you want to stitch him, head back here.

Have an extraordinary day. May the Lord bless each and every moment of each and every day of yours.♥

Stitching and praying,
Vickie
