Another flag-waving holiday! What better time than now to remember our soldiers fighting overseas, but also soldiers long gone – may they never be forgotten. Our ANG Chapter (Main Line Stitchers) is working on a project to donate to a museum of a piece with a soldier surrounded by different flags from the Revolutionary War. I forget what State mine was but it was a larger version of the one for my calendar. I used slanted Gobelin for the flag. All of the flags used a star pattern darning stitch for the background. I find darning patterns a difficult stitch to compensate (have to pay less attention to TV!).

Enjoy the holiday & family & friends . . . because soldiers made that possible.

Is the Stars and Stripes pattern for sale?

If you mean the original, I doubt it b/c it is from a 12-month calendar (published by Accord Publishing LTD) from 2005 which I received as a Christmas gift from a co-worker. The stitched piece I did was from a hand drawing done by one of our ladies, Marnie.
