I'm a Putz

Well, I've been putzing around on the computer here most of the night. I should have been sitting in my chair stitching, right? Since I was gone most of the week I needed to get caught up on emails and other stuff. So here I am, three hours later, still putzing around.

Here's what I have for you tonight -- I stitched this Shepherd's Bush design "Land of the Free" and finished it off into a pillow for Goldie as part of a Patriotic Exchange that a small group of us participated in. You can't really tell from the picture, but the blue fabric has flags in it and the contrasting fabric also has tiny flags in it. Turned out pretty cute IMHO!


Check back tomorrow for more updates. I've got a floss tag to show you and promise to post an update on my BOAF Friendship Sampler progress. Until then, happy stitching!
