Just Going to Town

I think I am in the home stretch of Faith of the heart.  
I have to add the bird and the remainder of the flowers and foliage in the right urn, space borders, the words  "for" and "fly" and viola!  Done!
Bob and I did a quick trip to Green Bay for shopping last weekend.  
I knew I would have some stitching time in Cabela's so I kitted up a freebie from Nickyscreations.
I used some floss from Victorian Motto and Sampler Shoppe for the flag, and the sheep's face.  The black was a GAST and the ecru was plain old DMC.
Done on a scrap of natural linen....I think 32 count. 
I tried to see if I had some star buttons but, the ones I had were just too big and looked ridiculous once I had them sewn on.  
I could swear I have some mother of pearl star buttons but, do you think I can find them.  
I don't know what I'm thinking half the time when I put things away.  
I found the round mother of pearl buttons I got at the same time.  
Heavy sigh!
I think I'm just going to stitch it up as a hanging ornament and put it on a handle somewhere.  
Maybe some gold felt stars, if I can cut them small enough and one on the back just to spiff it up.

I have ordered the latest mystery stitch from Brenda Gervais through the Stitching Bee, the Summer School House Lessons in Abecedarian.  
I bought a few of the flosses for it last weekend, ones I am running low.  
I think I have most of them including Flatfish which is kitted up in another one of her designs.  

It is not too hot today, a little humid, thunderstorms in the forecast this afternoon.  
I could turn on the AC but, we spend most of the year with the windows closed and the birds are singing so beautifully I'm going to endure the sogginess.  
Flood warning in the area for the Menominee River until 1 pm but, if we get more rain, and there is rain in the forecast for the next several days, I don't thinks the warning will go away anytime soon.  

I have Thursdays off.   
Have to run to the grocery store for a few things, trying to figure out dinner, the cleaning is done so I think I will stitch the afternoon away!

Hope you have a great day!
Keep on Stitching
Monica
