Memorial Day & a found freebie

Taking time today to honor and remember the veterans.

I found this wonderful freebie here at Plum Street Samplers.
I was hoping to have my pillow all finished to share here, but I guess that will have to wait for another day.

Wishing you a safe day of picnics and parades with family and friends, but please take a moment to say a prayer to honor and remember our veterans.

My thoughts are filled with my late Father-in-law who served in the Navy and my nephew currently serving with the Marines...

Blessings, Patti

p.s. For those that have asked, here are the colors that I choose to use for the freebie:
Red DMC 919
White DMC 822
Blue DMC 930
Green DMC 3051
Black./Brown DMC 3371
Thanks for asking!

Would you share your color choices? I have this same feebie sitting here and can't makeup my mind on colors.
Thank you! Ann

Thank you for sharing your color choices. I recently bought one of your coverlet scissor pouches on Etsy. I love it!
