Wasting time

Hello folks.  My plan to offer six boxes a month started off poorly.  February's box was going to be George (for president's day), our first president elected by the new Constitution, and also instrumental in the document itself.  Then I thought red would be more appropriate for Valentine's Day.  So George moved to January with no related reason for that month.  I have wasted days on end working on this three layer design,  and I still need more work to now shorten the width.  Before I go any further, can I ask for your opinion once again?   
 
There is a subtle suggestion of our flag as a background on ivory parchment paper, the beginning of the Constitution, and lonely George.  Cornballishness?  Certainly not related to stitchery but I've wanted something patriotic for quite a while. 
 
Working on Martha with the 300 thread.  It looks fine, no reason other than nitpickiness to change the color now.
 
 
We're warming up this weekend and Mark is waiting for a phone call to golf.  We got my car back from the hospital and I finally found a tube of O'Keeffe's for my hands.  Everyone was out.  Good stuff - thanks for the suggestions.
 
Hope everyone is doing well.

I love the box. It would work for the 4th of July as well. It would work with any patriotic collection. I like the flag in the background.

I think the box is beautiful and George should stay right where he is! I am glad you decided that the DMC color looked fine. I really like that color although it is a little on a the dark side.

Great looking box, Marly--I love how the flag is waving in the background. Just the right touch :)

Am driving up 79 on the way to mom's today--will wave at your exit!! Thankfully, no snow is in the forecast for my trip...

As with the others, I love the patriotic box! I keep a little patriotic around the house all year long, so for me, no cornballishness issues here!
