When I picked this stitch for my patriotic stitch for this weekend, I had set a goal for myself to start and finish it by tonight. If I had not met that goal – no big deal – but sometimes I like to set some goals to see if things will take as long to stitch as I think and of course it all depends on what other stuff I get up to during that time period so you never know.
This time I met the goal. I just put the final stitches in a little while ago. My next goal will be to have it fully finished so it can be displayed by the 4th of July. I left out one star because it made it too crowded for me and only used one of the called-for colors. I also backstitched my eagle’s head so it was more distinctive. It was an easy and fun stitch.
I think I will be finishing it on wood blank. It’s 1″ wide so will stand up on its own on a shelf or table etc. unless I find something else to use.
Hmmm now what will I stitch on for the rest of tonight?
