Happy Independence Day, Barbados!

Hello my dear stitchers,

The land I love, Barbados is today celebrating 47 years of Independence! Yes, this fair land, I call paradise the island of my birth is quickly becoming of age.  Despite our economic challenges, we are still striving as a nation and hopefully we can ride out this difficult "storm" that now confronts us as a people and a country. Today my prayers go out for the Government and people of Barbados that we will join together hand in hand to carry our country forward to better and greater achievements as we continue to grow.  Please see my little token of appreciation of my beautiful island, Barbados.

Design: Patriotic Heart 2013
Designer: AuryTM
Fabric: 28 Count White Evenweave
Threads: Yellow. J.P. Coats - Yellow, Black and Blue 
Trims: Cording and Blue satin ribbon
Finish: Heart-shaped Cushion

 For the occasion, I stitched, a heart-shaped cushion in the national colour of Barbados - yellow, black and blue on white evenweave.  I used the background fabric at the back of the cushion. the pattern was orginally done to celebrate the United states of America's Independence Day 2013.   You will guess by now that I changed the colours. Included in the picture above is our national flag, national flower and little items which I wear during the month of November - brooch  and handband.

And ...... here's my granddaughter, Asia, all decked out in the national colours for school yesterday!!!

I close with a picture of one of our beaches, Pebbles showing  the calming waters of the Caribbean.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
