My contribution to July 4th and some shop pics

Every year around July 4th, I’m getting a bit anxious. I see all this beautiful patriotic stitching, beautifully decked tables, lots of red white and blue and I tell myself that next year I need to have a 4th of July stitched piece as well. Luckily, that doesn’t last long as my stitching list is long enough as it is, but the feeling lingers.

So this year, I decided to join the festivities and make myself a 4th of July breakfast. Here’s my contribution to red, white and blue.


Miss Murphy moped around and said that technically speaking it wasn’t red, white and blue, but red, vanilla and blue. I told her if she wanted to get her canned cat food (a bit treat to her) she’d better shut up :).

And since I don’t have much stitching to show, here are two pics of the shop’s windows.


and the other side


I had to take these at an angle, otherwise the only thing you’d see would be yours truly in the windows.

  1. Love your version of Red, White ‘n’ Blue. Add some mango, and what do you get? Exactly šŸ™‚

    Shoot, I wish Groningen weren’t so very, very far away from me, because I would love to come and see that window display itself (and the shop and its owner, and Miss Murphy too!)

  2. Your shop is darling!~ I would love to know I could visit it in person one day….It makes me want to go there, sit down and stitch with you a while….I so enjoy your blog. Keep up the good work! Faye
