Memorial Day

Bleeding hearts seem appropriate for today...

I finally finished the With Thy Needle and Thread "Soar" SAL.
It took me longer than usual to stitch, as my eyes are no longer used to stitching over one, especially on navy. I am happy with the results and hope to take it to the framers soon. I made a few little changes to make it "mine".

I stitched this up on a Memorial Day a few years back so that I would always have a poppy.

Paulette from Plum Street Samplers has designed a wonderful Memorial Day cross stitch design and is so kind to offer it as a freebie ~ be sure to take a peek here.

I wonder if I have enough time to start it today...

Blessings, Patti

I love your one over one! Never thought about bleeding hearts for appropriate is right.
