Snap Happy!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, this might look familiar to you. I stitched this pattern last year for a 4th of July Fair and Square exchange. And this year, I've re-stitched it for myself ;) See those Pop-Its? We've gotta buy them every year, my boys love them. And sparklers. Gotta buy sparklers too, cuz it's just not 4th of July without sparklers ;)



Snap Happy Independence Day
by Bent Creek
fabric: 32ct lambswool linen
fibers: DMC

Have you seen this cute 4th of July Quaker Heart freebie by Aury? I hope to get it stitched this year too :)

I had a couple inquiries about my scissors in the last two posts. I bought them a few years ago as part of a set off ebay. I don't know if they're still available, but you can always search "embroidery scissors" on ebay to see what comes up.

Thanks for all of your sweet comments on my patriotic stitching and our recent road trip (I still have a few more pics of that.) Sending you all a little Colorado Sunshine...

Woo, Staci, great patriotic projects! Your trip to the Springs looks like it was fun. We're lucky to have so many interesting places to go in Colorado. It's good to catch up with you.

Staci,

Celebrate freedom looks great. I'm glad that you got the chance to stitch it for yourself. I just stitched the very same design for my partner in the F&S 4th of July round. It's a cute design.

I just love Bent Creeks stuff.

This is such a happy design, and you stitched it beautifully! You're inspiring me again Staci!

I love sparklers too, and I love those black snakes. Do they still make those?

This catches the spirit of the fourth perfectly - I love the fireworks. Never heard of pop-its and I'll have to look for them -- I know a 9 year old who would be thrilled with those.
