Patriotic Flag!

I finally finished my flag today and not real thrilled with it.
I had an idea and changed it and now I think I will make another with the original idea.

I hung it on the wall with rug tape, for now, but I plan on making a hanger for it.
It does look nice and prim on the wall, of course I cannot get a photo that shows the prim look it really has.
I like how it looks on the wall, but not how it looks in the photo.
I can't wait to get my new camera, hopefully I can get better shots then.

Tonight i played with watercolor pencils. I colored in a pattern with the pencils, then used light amounts of water to spread the paint. I am not sure now, whether I should practice some machine stitching with it, or hand stitch around it, we shall see what I decide;)

This is my own design, I am practicing making patterns for sewing, that can also be used to punch or rug hook.



Here is another view, the kitchen has better light, but tends to make the colors pop.
It might be easier to see some of the details on this one. It is all hand stitched and I did some stars on the upper half.

I like the flag quilt a lot even if you aren't wild about it. It has an old look which I like.
