A 4th of July Finish

It was so hot outside today that I decided to really enjoy the day by just relaxing and doing some stitching.  I've been "collecting" the LHN ornament series since they started them in 2010 and committed to myself that I would *actually* stitch some (six) of them this year.  Here's my first finish!  When I sew this again, I think I will do it on a smaller count fabric - and it gives me some ideas about how to plan for the other ornaments.

LHN "Ding Dong Merrily on High"
30-count WDW parchment; suggested CC and DMC

Hope you have found some time to wave a flag and reflect today on this great country of ours!  'Til next time, I'm off to take up my needle and sew (another ornament!).



  1. I liked that stitching pattern as soon as I saw it. I have a soft spot for old English carols : ) Beautifully done!

  2. Congrats on your finish, Becky! I wonder which one you will do next......
