I knew the moment I saw this chart released a couple weeks ago, that I HAD to stitch it. So, my parents picked it up for me & as soon as I saw them, I got it from them.
It is called Salute to America by Pickle Barrel Designs.
It is stitched on 28 ct. parchment batik lugana by Youthful Hands Needle Crafts.
The pattern came with Sullivan's Floss, which I have never used before.
It also came with a substitute alphabet chart, so you could make changes, which I did. The bottom line on the pattern said "My Love" but I wanted it to say son, since it is going to be a gift for my son, who serves our country in the Army. He will be deploying again, so I wanted to make something for him.
I have been watching the birds all weekend while I have stitched....yes, I stitched this all this weekend, with the exception of the words My Soldier.
Have a great week!!!!
