The Flag of Spring

I do not know why, but all of a sudden I cannot get enough of wool. The last week I have been digging through projects that have been in the making for some time and I have been trying to finish them up. Here is the latest.

022

It is from an older pattern by All Through the Night called “The Flag of Spring.”  Now it is finished.

016

The backing is a black cotton fabric and the background is a vintage army blanket. It is made of 100% wool and has a chenille border surrounding the center. I hand appliqued the wool pieces.

I also mailed off my end of the Pin Keep Swap put on by Wendy of Ravenwood Whimzies, having already received mine from my partner it is killing me not to open the box!!! But I am holding out, it is only fair.  It was actually very difficult to send off because I really wanted to keep it, even my husband wanted me to keep it. I will just have to make a similar one for me.

Well, I have to get busy, I played on the computer too long yesterday and did not get anything accomplished, so I have lots to make up.

Have a great day and don’t forget to find a little stitching time today!

Later - Jennifer
