July's Celebration

My latest project is another one by Barb and Alma of Blackbird Designs. I wanted to stitch something patriotic, but I did not want to stitch anything with a house or an alphabet in the design. A bit of a tall order, especially since I am on the dreaded Stash Diet and I am confined to what is currently available to me. I then remembered this project. This one has been on the 'Why haven't I stitched this yet? I love this!' pile for quite some time. So, I thought I better get a move on and get on with it. It is stitching up quite quickly and I am really loving how it is turning out so far. 

At any rate, here is the pre-weekend update:
