Patriotic Freebies

4th of July is my absolute favorite holiday. Don't get me wrong, I love Halloween. I love Christmas. I am even getting into Valentine's Day (something about a card with 'Baby' on the front of it turns me in to a teenager). But 4th of July has it all. Americans are proud to be Americans. Everyone wears red, white and blue. You don't have to send cards. You don't have to buy a gift for anyone. You can go swimming. You can eat a hot dog. There will be explosions, for which no one will go to jail. That, kind hearts, gentle readers, is the ultimate holiday of the American holiday calendar.

And, in that vein, I thought I would share some of the best patriotic freebies I've run across lately. I hope you enjoy them. I certainly love them!

Cindymae has some great freebies. I love the patriotic ones. I am thinking of doing the tree in the center of a grapevine wreath. Wouldn't that be cute?

Plum Street samplers offers us this one . Really cute!

And we have these from Needlecraft Corner. You have to pay for the kits, but, it's not a lot to pay for the fibers and fabric you'd be using anyway. I totally blame "Liberty for Ewe" for my passion for all things involving patriotic sheep. Could you resist that little lamb?

This is sweet! Not patriotic as it stands, but make the little lamb's ribbon red white and blue, and it's perfect for the holiday. July 4th makes me feel ewe-phoric. They also have these to do as primitive stitchery. Heck, there is lots of great clip art on that site. Go to town!

A whole blog of freebies

Several more.

A couple nice patriotic ones by Gloria and Pat. There are a lot of lot of cute freebies on these pages.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
