Americana Stitcheries

Summer isn't too far away, so I thought it would be fun to do some patriotic pieces.
Both pieces are designs by Tiffany of Twigs N Sprigs. I decided to reduce them and make smaller pieces.
I think they will be great for gifts, though I do love them myself;)

This one was fun and I think it would be fun to do in colors too.
The blue marks are from my chalk pencil, that comes off when I wet them.
I also used a darker tea stain, more like a coffee color, so it gives it an aged look without using walnut spray.



I love the primitive angels, they make wonderful pieces and are so fun to work in any medium.
I used fabrics that my friend Kelley sent me, so I cannot tell you what maker they are from. They were perfect for these pieces.
