In today's world, we celebrate Flag Day...well, some of us...the Fourth of July and the arrival of Summer Fun. Stars and stripes are every where and many once again display the American Flag. Opening the front door every morning and seeing my Flag I'm reminded how much I love it and the Country it represents. Could that be why I'm drawn to cross stitch with a Flag theme?
"July's Celebration" from Blackbird Designs Fine Collection is a favorite among a collection of family flags.
The next two pieces are very early Cricket Collection. I liked the flag from "Heart and Home"but not especially fond of the home. Stitching only the flag and adding the word Liberty with a star was perfect. It's difficult to photograph framed pieces covered with glass and the second piece, also a Cricket Collection, was hopeless. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
