True Colors

It's been a beautiful week weather wise in N. Ireland - great since it was my youngest two kids' summer sports day at school not so for my eldest who had exams all week and had to try to revise for them instead for sunbathing!

I have been enjoying the outdoors and so neglected my sewing for a bit but I'm really in the mood for stars and stripes, so here's a few pics of some Americana stars and stripes I've pulled out so far~

I did get a Friday finish !! YAYY! I made a prim Americana Kitty who is based on our neighbor's cat Mitzi who likes to come by and visit us especially when it's Sunday roast time!

She's extremely patriotic waving her flag and wearing a matching dress with a wee star necklace!

Wishing everyone in the USA a great Memorial weekend!
Thanks for coming by - hope to hear from you too!

  11. Lovely stars and stips Christine. You just put me in the mood. After Memorial Day, it just seems fitting!! I love your fist stack of stars. I may have to try and make me something like that too:) I remember laying out in the afternoons on the weekends and after school. That's way better than studying. School's coming to an end:) We always have field day for the kids that last week of school. I bet it is alot like sports day for yours. TFS. -Steph-

    Is school almost over in Northern Ireland? My boys have another month to go (until the end of June).
