More America...

And not all of it wonderful...the stitching, that is. What was I thinking, why did I frame this Birds of a Feather piece? Another perfect little project that would have been just right for a small bowl?!I did not like stitching the Prairie Schooler heart on 18 count davos so I stitched the Cricket angel on 18 count aida? What was I thinking?!
Remember this frame from winter and spring stitching? Sheepish Designs "Eagle" was a perfect fit even though the eagle flew off center....what was he thinking?!

There must have been a little more thinking going on here...Blackbird Designs "Patriotic Bouquet" from Souvenirs of Summer is a favorite that reminds me of good stitching time spent with a friend.


As this piece...another Birds of a Feather...was started at the beginning of the Iraq War, I know what I was thinking!! Although, did any of us think, to date, there is still no end?
Let us all think Peace today...and every day.
