Getting into the Americana mood!

It's Time!

I mean of course time for summer and for me that means Americana! I love red, white and blue!
Over the next few days I am going to put out some of my Americana gatherings.I've been busy making a new shelf sitter for the season. I got my inspiration from one of Twigs' doodles on her Primitive Blessings website and got to making this gal!

Her body is made of lovely Americana fabric with stars and there's even a rusty star on her head!

I am going to list her on my selling blog though I'm really quite attached to her... I suppose I'll have to make another one!

Have a great day!
