4th of July Giveaway

Time for a giveaway!
I may be a little late, but you can enjoy these for the rest of the summer and have them early for the next 4th of July :)

Included in the giveaway are:
  •  A cross-stitched pillow (I think it is a Lizzie*Kate design) featuring four of my handmade buttons (that I used to make and sell.) 
  • A cross-stitched quilt
  • And a star pillow from an antique quilt top
As always this giveaway is open to everyone.
Simply leave a comment on this post or email me at with "4th of July" in the subject line. 
And tell me are you a fireworks fan?
I will pick a winner on Monday, July 7th.

(I just had to share this favorite picture from a few years back.)

Last night we attended our local fireworks and as always the finale thrilled me :)
To me there is nothing better to make it the 4th of July than fireworks, family and friends!

Wishing you a safe and spectacular 4th of July!
We are so blessed to live in this country ~ even with its imperfections,
as nothing is perfect, but God.

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he chose for his inheritance.
From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind;
from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth—
he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.
~Psalm 33: 12-15

Blessings, Patti

Happy 4th! Back in our early years we had a small woodworking business and one contract was building and repairing the finale' racks that were used at the end of the many firework shows all over the country. Our "racks" were used in the Washington DC bicentennial show....a very proud moment in time....needless to say, we love fireworks!

Happy 4th!

When we were in the military we were fire works fans but it was bittersweet at the same time since our husbands were usually deployed. Now that he's retired we can never find good fireworks

What a generous giveaway!! While I do enjoy watching fireworks once in a while, I am not as big a fan as my family! I enjoy watching the excitement in my grandsons face more. The little guy loves fireworks. Thanks so much for offering this giveaway!

Beautiful 4th of July pieces. I love fireworks, we don't always get to go watch them but I do love them!

Hi Patti, I would love to be entered in your giveaway! Fireworks are pretty but I don't like how they scare sweet little animals.

Happy Independence Day Patti!
It was a fun filled day with lots of activities morning till night! We are blessed!
Thanks for sharing your works, they are all adorable!

MoonBeam said...

A cute little trio for your giveaway. You can never have too many patriotic smalls.

I luv fireworks, but not fighting the crowds. Some of my neighbors and I and just took our usual spot out front on the circle to watch my city's fireworks display from afar last night. Not the same as being up close and personal.

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their holiday weekend and that the east coasters are quick to recover from whatever Arthur might have brought.


linda said...

I love your header on this post! Cute little cabin. I like fireworks best on TV now. There are too many animals afraid of the real thing. Maybe it's my age but I enjoy the fireworks from the comfort and safety of my favorite chair.

Pat Salvatini said...

Happy 4th Patti! As always, I'm enjoying reading your blog. Thanks for sharing.

Carolyn Boutilier said...

Karen said...

Hope you had a great holiday Patti - we sure did with our kids. I love fireworks and we are lucky that there are so many around the lake we don't even have to leave home to enjoy them. Although the really close ones do scare one of the grandpups and he's the biggest one of the bunch lol. Love your gifties for the giveaway - please add my name to your bowl.
Hugs - Karen

MommyDearest said...

First time on your page...I found you from a link on Notforgtten Farms blog. Your blog is terrific! Stitching is helping me make it thru some HUGE changes in my life..preparing our house to be put on the market, husband asking for a divorce after 18 yrs of marriage..(never expected to be single at 62 yrs old!)and putting myself back out of retirement to find a full time job! Drama for sure!! LOL!!
Thank you so much for a chance to win your awesome give away!
