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!
