Happy Fourth Of July
Today being the 4th of July I felt like posting a Patriotic Piece. This Liberty Bell I stitched for my nephew, Jake, after he got shot in Kuwait, just prior to the war. You really can't see the material around the pillow but it was blue with white stars that really added to the piece. My sister-in-law made it into a pillow.
We had a wonderful surprise when we went out to Meijers the other day. My niece and her baby, Johnny, were out there shopping. Johnny is 18 months now and is so cute. He's getting so he knows us each time he sees us. Every time he passed us in the store he would wave Byee to us.
Next week (13-18) my sister and brother in law will be camping in our area so maybe we will get to see Addison some time. She is two months old now. Heather sent me some pictures the other day and is so cute.
I finally figured out how to add Feedjit to my site. I can finally see how many visitors and where they are from. It took me long enough to figure out what I was doing wrong all this time. The only problem is often I'll go to my blog roll to see their sites then back space to my site, and it records that too so it will look like I'm going to my blog a lot when I'm really using it as a jumpoff to get to other sites. I also added sitemeter but not sure I did that the way I wanted to. Time will tell
. I started Windsailing to go along side of The Brown Bears. This is progress on it after about 5 hours of stitching. It goes fast so won't take that long to go. This will go to Love Quilts, either for a Sea scene quilt or Sports quilt
Of course I have to include progress on The Brown Bear. Hopefully I will be done early next week.
Thank you to everyone who reads my blog and to those who leave comments. I really have appreciated them.
Well until next time Happy Stitching and Happy Fourth of July!
