I participated in the Fair & Square Patriotic Exchange and had Jill MN as a partner. Here are the wonderful blocks that she sent:

This is such a neat flag. I do not know what stitch Jill used for the red and white stripes but it looks fantastic...
What is that stitch???
Thanks to Wendy for posting this answer:
A vertical oblong stitch with a double cross
I seriously love this block ~ I'm one lucky stitcher! Thank you, Jill.
I wanted to post a picture of the gorgeous floss that I ordered from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe.
I just love this floss (and Nancy :-D), always have. Yum, such eye candy! Nancy offers such a large selection of beautifully dyed threads, it's often hard for me decided which to buy. Honestly, I want them all.
Well, I popped over to Nancy's blog to get the link and was flabbergasted to see that I was one of the 5 lucky stitchers to win her summer floss giveaway. Yahoo, I get to select five skeins from the 1840 Sampler Line. Your continued generosity is truly admirable. Thank you, sweet Nancy!
Yes, I truly feel like one lucky stitcher!
Thanks for stopping by and...
