Here 'ya go


Not my style, but I hope you like the offer for this giveaway. 
 
 
 
Lined with stars on dark red,
 



 
backed with stars on navy, interfaced for stiffness. 
 
 
 


Drop a weight inside to balance if the fill doesn't allow a straight hang.
 
The chart will be posted when I draw the winner.  But you can leave a comment on this post if you would like to be entered for this finished piece (the flag isn't included).  Make sure you include your initials since so many of you have become no-reply.
 
As for the jelly in the yard, it is called Nostoc.  Harmless but creepy stuff created when your soil can't drain.
 
The winner will be drawn on Wednesday 6/24 at 6pm EST.



Enjoy the weekend as we close in on the end of June.  WHAT???

Oh, your "sweet land of liberty" bag is so patriotic and beautiful. Would love to own it. I like the material that you lined it with and used for the backing and hanger..
I hope it's cooler at your house than it is at mine..
Have a happy Sunday.
