Happy Birthday, America!

 American women have long shown their pride in our country through their needlework. The needlepoint tapestry above is probably 30 to 40 years old. The workman ship is beautiful! I believe it was used as wall art.

 This gorgeous counted cross-stitch needlepoint was done much more recently, but with as much love and pride. It shows a beautiful bald eagle with the American flag behind it. The colors are bold and bright, and the detail is amazing.

Happy 4th of July, everybody!

the eagle needlework pieces are just perfect to display at this time of year! I have an eagle tablecloth that I should take a picture of.

Hi, Patricia. It's so good to see you back! These are wonderful patriotic pieces. I especially love the old one! I checked your shop to see if you were selling it -- and saw your recent Southern Belle pillowcase sale -- you know, the BIG sale. Congratulations! You have a very nice selection of fun, bright embroidered linens.

I'm having a Vintage Linen & Dish Auction on my blog starting July 21. Stop by if you get a chance and click on the auction button on my sidebar for the details ... and help me spread the word!
