A Patriotic Finish!


I actually stitched this Hob Nobb piece last year, but finally got around to "finishing" it this past weekend in time for Memorial Day. I tried all different kinds of ribbon and trim on it, but nothing looked quite right. It sat on this little table without a topper for several days. Finally, yesterday I was at Michael's and saw this trim for less than a dollar and thought I would give it a try. I actually liked it! It may be a little "over the top", but I thought it was a perfect 4th of July/Patriotic trim for it. Kind of reminds me a little of fireworks. What do you think of the trim?
Well, I think I can officially call it summer here in Florida. Today is my son's last day of school and the weather is over 90! So, with those two criteria, I think it is official.
As for stitching...I really haven't gotten around to it this past week either. Too much going on. We had company over the Memorial Day weekend and this week has been busy with chaperoning the end of the year party and going to a B-day luncheon of a friend that is recovering from treatments for breast cancer. So...hopefully I will get some stitching done over the weekend or next week. TTFN!!!
