Happy 4th of July

First I want to say Happy 4th of July:)  
Since it is the 4th I have been on a roll with Patriotic stitches and I have been loving it.

So I am starting out with a picture of all the pieces I have stitched this year.

 BBD-American Eagle from their book Sweet Land of Liberty.
Stitched on 32 count clay with DMC threads.
Started 6-16-2016
Finished 6-23-2016
I even had this frame in my stash which I think worked out perfectly.

Just a quick note, I have manage to stitch each one of the designs on the cover 
of this book.  Two last year and two this year.  I was part of the club for the piece in 
the upper left hand corner.

 Drawn Thread-Free and Brave.
Stitched on 32 count summer khaki with DMC.
Started 6-11-2016
Finished 6-20-2016
Again I got lucky and had this frame in my stash.

 LHN-Liberty and Justice stitched on 28 count lambswool with DMC threads.
Had this in my stash for quite sometime.
Started 6-9-2016
Finished 6-10-2016

 LHN-Old Glory stitched on 28 count linen I dyed with DMC threads.

I have had this in my stash for a while, finally got to stitching it
 Fabric on the back of Old Glory.

 Shepherds Bush-Free from Americana Trifles booklet.

I stitched this up just last night was a very quick stitch.

 Keeping with the Patriotic theme, I had to sew some pouches for my patriotic patterns.
These pouches are approximately 13 inches wide by 11 inches high.

 Here is the back side of the pouch.  I love this fabric.

 Another pouch.

 Back side of pouch.

 One more pouch.  I do love this combination too.

 Back side of pouch.

I make these pouches to sell.  I also make a smaller version which measures approximately 8 x 11.
I can make these to order too.  
You can check out my shoppe tab to see what I have in my inventory to sell.
These make very good project pouches as you can see exactly what you have in there.

You have a nice collection of Patriotic finishes.
That's a lot of BB finishes!
Love the one with the white house and Eagle above it.
