A mosaic flag
I'm writing this Saturday night because Mom and I left Sunday for a couple of days in Martinsville. By the time this posts Monday we will have attended an impromptu reunion of the families that I grew up with on Blackberry Road in Bassett, VA. I should have a story or 2 later this week.
But I didn't let the weekend go to waste! I finished a new section of the wall late Friday night. This is one that I've had planned for a while and I knew I wanted it at the top of the wall. Notice that there are 10 stars on my flag. That's because Virginia was the 10th state. There are little secrets like that all over the wall.
I can't travel without a travel project so I planning to work on the centers for my flower quilt. I use applique sheets like this or RIcky Tims Stable Stuff for applique and my Go Cutter has the perfect size circle.
Here's my little kit if circles, starch, scissors and a mini iron. Who knows if I'll actually get anything done but I'm prepared if I do have a little time. I don't exactly remember how I did these before but if I get a method working that I like I will write myself a tutorial for the next time.
Perfect timing for a patriotic flag, for sure. Interesting to know the significance of the stars on yours - I'm sure I must have learned that in history class when I was a kid (we learned mostly US history because our textbooks pretty much all came from there - very 'short' on our own Canadian history).

I love your wall and I love that you have put little things that are significant to you in it.

I love your flag mosaic. I need to line up some small projects that I can carry along for small trips.

Your little 10-starred flag is so cool!

Love that flag. I was just thinking about you, when a friend who is a rabid Packer fan said he was going to get to go to the Hall of Fame ceremony to see Brett Favre get inducted. Brought to mind that we only have six weeks to go to preseason, YEA!!

The flag section is the bomb!
