A Red ,White and Blue Stitchmaynia finish!


Happy Monday!
I finished stitching this Barbara Ana freebie( from Star Spangled Stitchers group on Facebook ) last week .. I wanted to get it finished up and on display! This was one of my Stitchmania starts last month..
I got this frame at the Goodwill for 99 cents and painted it with chalkboard paint .. I used the backing of the frame to put the red gingham on .. I used a magnet on the gingham and a small piece of sheet metal on the the back of the stitching . Just in case I have a small design at Christmas I could change it out..I stitched it on 28 count tea/coffee dyed evenweave.. It's displayed in a thrift store gingham lined picnic basket ..
If you would like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

I love how you've displayed your latest finish, Priscilla. It looks so cute nestled in the picnic basket. Such a cute freebie! I printed it off, but haven't stitched it yet--may have to wait until another summer :)

Hi Priscilla, do you have to belong to the group to get this freebie? If so, can anyone join?
We just love it!
