A break in the action

I've finished stitching the 4th of July March, and I am now finished with the stitch guide.

I celebrated by finishing this little firecracker canvas by Kelly Clark. I especially like the turquoise and blue stripes. I laid 3 strands of Perle Cotton #3 horizontally and satin stitched over them vertically with Shimmer Blend Ribbon Floss (turquoise) and Sprinkles (blue).

Mon travail est complet!

Well, it took a little longer than expected but the 4th of July is done!  And, so is the stitch guide.

March Madness - part 3

Yankee Doodle Dandy plays the drum dressed in a fine coat with a woven belt.  And, he stuck a feather in his cap.

The 4th of July Parade Leader

This guy is truly a leader, dressed in over-dyed plumage, a high hat, vest and monocle.  Stay tuned as I add to his haberdashery.
