"LIBERTY" and Justice for ALL.

Hi my friends, 
Just finished the punchin' part and the final finish is yet to come. This is my "LIBERTY" hang tag design. 
The first picture shows it without a tea dye. 

Me, being a fan of primitive stuff that looks olde and worn, 
I went and tea stained it... that's the 2nd picture.
 So now you know. Would you prefer it before or after? At this point I have no choice and I am happy with the after.
Can you see the seed beads I added in the strawberry? 
Those are french knots for the 13 stars which 
I did not stain in the after. 
It measures 6" tall and 2 3/4" wide. 
Used Valdani threads for all of it.
Will have a pattern for this in the very near day or two or so. 
I have some other patriotic designs available on my
Come and visit. 
 Enjoy with Folk Art Hugs, and much Peace,
Barb ...

"LIBERTY" New Design for the Summer

Summer means 4th of July
Full of celebrations, like fireworks, parades, full bloomin' flowers, watermelon, strawberries, and picnics.

I am working on another of my Hang Tag patterns.
Summer fun with a "Liberty" banner.
We have limited supplies where I live  
and am once again waiting for some threads 
to be delivered.  So here I sit twiddling my thumbs.
Thought I'd share some of my WIP. 
I love strawberries, Black Eyed Susans and 
living in a country with "Liberty" for All.
These were my inspirations.

Happy days for all with Peace and Blessings,
