SSD-C27 - Patriotic Trio

1 1/8-2” w by 1 1/2-2” h each - 16-28 stitches w by 21-29 stitches h each

These are three patriotic cross-stitch designs - American flag - shows the American flag waving in the breeze and the letters
USA beside it.  The design is embellished with white petite beads for stars -, American bald eagle - shows the legendary
United States logo in great detail, with backstitching showing off his feathers, in a familiar pose, sitting on a branch, wings out,
above a vine with green leaves -, and Uncle Sam - shows the legendary United States representative in red, white and blue,
in his familiar “I want YOU” pose.  A French knot is used for the eagle eye, and backstitch emphasizes the eagle’ feathers.

The images are on pre-finished ovals ready to be finished to be decorative on both sides (with detailed finishing instructions
provided) and hung as patriotic decorations after a ribbon is laced through the lace edge of the medallions.  The ribbons will
provide unique accents to the motifs.
