Fly Your Flag!!

Great day to fly a flag here in New England. The weather has been sunny and wonderful. Fall is peaking it's head in and it is nice to see.

I made this Leaf Flag about 20 years ago, after seeing it on a beautiful Fall day, driving through Vermont. I knew I had to make it, it was just so darn cute! Flying flags like these are pretty popular around these parts, so I have made a few through the years. This was one of my first ones and it was fun to do.

The hard part was getting all the poplin colors. And then of course all the close stitched zig-zag stitching. After you do all that stitching, then it is on to using a seam ripper. So yes, it can be time consuming, but well worth it. And look how long it has lasted!!
