Lots and lots of Americana

I love these cards I made to send out for the 4th of July...they have one of my favorite pictures of Ben and Madi on them. The kids were were 2 and 4 and dressed in their pilot uniforms...I have this picture displayed in my living room too.

Here is last years 4th of July card...it's my little blog symbol whenever I leave comments on other blogs.

This in one of the tables in my living all dressed up in Red, White and Blue.

See a few little stitchery pillows I made in years past...I love making little things to decorate my house.


Look at these beautiful little piggies. Last Wednesday was Madi's birthday. She wanted to go to the movies to see Night At The Museum 2 and she wanted to go get her toes done...it was such a fun day.

Oh how cute...Madi's toes are! Lexi loves to get hers done also...

Oh I love all your little things...especially "Home is where the Air Force...how cute!

Sorry to hear about a fellow American losing their life in your previous post.

Also no to your answer on the warm/natural...I have went back and talked to a Walmart lady who is a sewer and she said they don't carry that at this store...she said the bigger cities do but since we don't have much material sold here they don't keep it. I thought about checking later on when I head up to Macon for some. I would like to know how many strands do you use when you do your projects...I just love all the ones you share...funny I went back and lot over your blog all over again and looked at those different post with your stitching...I love seeing them and how detail you are.
