Patriotic, Wreats and Hexagons - Checking In


Hi Everyone

I'm just checking in after several months of being MIA.   I'm just making sure that I can still remember how to do a blog post and to see if there is anyone out there that is still reading my  posts.  


This is a quilt that I made a couple of years ago.  It's just a pattern that I made up.   I have it hanging up in my kitchen using the yardstick hanging idea from Janet that blogs at Rogue Quilter.    I love Patriotic decorating and will post more later.



I've been making wreaths the last couple of weeks.   The wreaths below are all made from a tutorial on YouTube from Priscilla at Stitching with the Housewives.   Priscilla and her daughter, Chelsea, are cross stitch pattern designers and have a you tube channel.  


 
This one is made from small tulip stems from Michaels.  



These really are easy to make.   Once I stopped dropping the roll of wire and getting the grapevine wreath to stop sticking to everything, it was pretty easy.


This one is on my front door now.  It is made from 4 different geranium branches from Michaels.
I've been doing mostly counted cross stitch for the last several months.   Lately, I've been thinking about pulling out my hexagons and starting a new project.   More on that later.


This post is mainly a test to see if I still remember how to do a post and see if anyone is out there reading this.   

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.


I hope you are finding some time to stitch today!!!
