I've always admired the patriotism our American neighbours display. Everywhere you go in the states you can see their flag, in emblems, decals , badges...you name it, you can see the flag....not so much here in Canada. Robert Kaufman came out with a "Quilts of Valour" line for Canadian soldiers. It's a Stonehenge line and I must say I love it. I saw a bag similar (much nicer than this one) to this in Joanne's Christmas Crab Quiltery and fell in love with it. Here's my version nearly finished. I say nearly finished, since I have to find and sew on three buttons.. I bought some wooden ones a while ago and I haven't a clue where I put them. They certainly would be appropriate with all the "woodsy" designs here.
See the white velcro on the tab. Well I was all finished
sewing when it occurred to me that I did not sew
on the second part of the velcro.....doh!
Guess I will have to do that by hand.
Here's one of the prettier birds at one of our feeders. A rose-breasted grosbeak. Big birds and colourful. Sadly, one of our woodpeckers dived bombed the window today and killed itself. Hate to see that happen.
