Welcome to the Red, White and Bluest blog around! Each month we stitch on our own Americana (or Patriotic) projects. You choose your chart, fabric and threads. Share your progress as you go along and post any finished pieces by the last day of the month. You can join at anytime throughout the year and choose which months you wish to stitch with us. There will be the occasional giveaway, maybe some quizzes and competitions and definitely lots of FUN!

Okay, here we go for 2018....
I have just realised that I have not posted on this Americana SAL blog for nearly a year! The last time I posted was 27 March 2017 and here it is the 6th March 2018!!!!!!!! ... and I do so love this SAL blog - so here goes with the first post for 2018.... My focus Americana piece for now is the Democratic Donkey one of the Party Tarts by Plum Street Samplers, part of their Jack's Sweet Shoppe Series.
This was gifted to me by the gorgeous Sarah (from Sarah in Stitches) when we caught up on my recent stay in Dubai. Thank you again, Sarah.
This is where I was up to before I started stitching last evening ....
... and, as you can see, quite a lot of progress was made!
I would love it if you would like to join me for some Americana stitching - it can be a WIP or UFO or a brand new project - you choose.
