Part of my 4th of July/Patriotic binge.
'Uncle Sam's' pattern 
by Threads that bind.

I have been on short supply of home decorations 
representing our patriotic loyalty. 
I just added this punch needle that I mounted 
on a custom made wooden Horn Book.   
Gave it another one of those faux grained finishes 
and added the rusty star above.

I chose to make some modifications to the design 
as can be seen when making comparisons to the original pattern. 
I displayed it on one of my easels rather than hang on the wall.  
That could change with the weather too. 
My binge includes 2 more patriotic designs... 
Hopefully, soon to be ready for viewing.

Have a great day tomorrow as today is pretty much kaput!

Thanks for visiting,
Peace to all and God Bless America,
