Pattern Pick of the Day: Queen of Freedom

Queen of Freedom cross stitch pattern by MirabiliaThe Mirabilia sitting ladies aren’t usually my style, but there are a few that I really do like. Queen of Freedom is one of those. Anything with a patriotic theme usually gets my attention.

Design uses DMC floss, Mill Hill Beads, and Kreinik Metallic Thread.
Stitch count is 181 x 289

Happy Stitching 🙂

Independence Eagle Stitched by Denise

Denise shared this finish with us on the Facebook page awhile ago and I forgot to add it to the gallery. I love the idea of using the bandana as an accent or mat fabric too. Great work, Denise!

Star-Spangled Happiness Free Cross Stitch Pattern

freepatternstarspangledstackedJust a quick little freebie to stitch up over the Independence Day holiday this weekend.

Unfortunately, the weather forecast here in my part of the U.S. looks hot, humid, and rainy 🙁 – good weather for staying in to stitch, but not so great for taking the kids out to see fireworks, cooking on the grill, and other fun stuff.

Hopefully your weather is a little nicer. East coast folks, please stay safe, it looks like we’ll have our first storm of the summer this week.
