⭐💖Happy Fourth of July!💖⭐

Hi friends! I have a patriotic finish to share with you. This has been done for two weeks!
I wanted to wait to show you until I had it framed. 5x5 frames lie! I picked up a 5x5 frame from Michael's and the opening was truly 4 1/2 x 4 1/2. I ordered one from Walmart and it was the same thing! Three frames later... I just got a 6x6 Mill Hill frame and the opening is 5 1/2x 5 1/2🙃 Whatever! It works for me, so I am happy!
I stitched this one over one with DMC and VMSS Tarnished Gold on 32ct cream linen. I am very happy with my remake of the Bald Eagle. 🦅
See the pattern.
 And I had to take out the cat and put in a 🐩 Me and my Henry❣️
To all my American friends: Happy Fourth of July!!

"in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Love your new patriotic stitch, Vickie! One over one on 32 for so many stitches is quite a job and you have succeeded beautifully. Adding you and Henry is a perfect addition and makes it even more special. I love stitching letters and anything patriotic so I'm really loving this great pattern. Hope you have a wonderful 4th!

Vickie: It is a beautiful design and a perfect frame, I know what you mean about the openings not being the size they say, I have had many problems with some frames not being the right inside size.
Have a beautiful fourth.

A lovely finish, putting Henry there instead of the cat was a great idea.
Hope you had a good day yesterday.

You and Henry looks so cute on this lovely finish. Good news you finally managed to find a suitable frame with the correct aperture size.

It looks fantastic in that frame! Although I like the kitty in it, I know you had to change it to Henry, it looks adorable!
