  1. All I can say is wow! You'd think being we're both vets that I'd have more than one patriotic piece but that's it and that's for the month of July. I love your pieces though especially the 1776 crock. Blessings!

    1. Happy Saturday, Donna . I first want to thank you and your dear hubby for your service; I am so very grateful. I think the 1776 crock is one of my favorites; it was one of my 1st designs. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs. Oh by the way , Pet All the Dogs is a gorgeous sampler . Teresa Kogut has some beautiful designs.

    1. Aaw thank you so much, Robin. I am so touched that you enjoyed the parade. I have to admit that I forget what I have stitched so it is fun for me to look back and then find those that are stored away. Lol. Happy Saturday. Hugs.

  4. It must make you feel pretty good when you look back at all your projects! I normally don't care that much for red, white, and blue (but yes I am patriotic!!), but I like yours because you always include another color, and that makes it beautiful to me. I am inspired by your Summer House and just downloaded everything. Thank you!

    1. Happy Saturday, Linda. I am so touched that you downloaded Summer House. It wa a fun stitch even though it has a big ole' yard to stitch. Hee! Hee! I hope you enjoy it. Happy Memorial Day. Hugs.

  5. You have some wonderful patriotic stitcheries. It's hard to pick a favorite. I don't sew with red, white and blue very often. It's a color combination that I had way too much of when I was a kid. My mother did my room in red, white and blue when I was a pre-teen, suggested red, white and blue for my wedding (we got married in July). It's a beautiful color combination, just one that I use sparingly.

    1. Isn't that funny how colors that we or our parents used when we were real young do not appeal as much when we older? My daughters' rooms were painted every color in the book when they were growing up with matching curtains and bedspreads each time that they repainted, but nowadays they just like white. Thank you for the sweet Saturday visit, Kate. Happy Memorial Day.

  7. So many fun and cute stitches, Melisa! Thanks for sharing them so generously- I want to make every one. Last summer I stitched the fireworks red truck stamp - I might need another one with a truck. We had a little red truck when we were first married!

    1. Aah yes you do need a little red truck ! Wouldn't it be cute to personalize it to the year you were married? I hope to add more patriotic stamps in the next few weeks. Thank you so much for the sweet Saturday visit, Diann. Have a blessed day. Hugs.

  14. Hi Melisa, just wanted to say that I enjoy your blog very much along with everything you stitch and sew. In fact you inspired me to spend the month of May stitching your cross stitch patterns. So far I have 25 items stitched. I cannot tell you how much fun I am having. Hope you and your family have a blessed day.

    2. No. I tried once and it did me in. Your patterns are so cute and sweet, I just could not resist sewing them. My biggest problem was which ones to sew. I am so very happy with all the ones I sewed. If I knew how to send a picture of my stitching I would. I will ask one of my friends to help me. Take care and God Bless.
