Gold Star

I'm stitching the other ornament now but wanted to do something for Memorial Day next weekend.  It started out with the center, and since the miniature I'm working on has an alpha outline, decided to add it.  You can leave it off if you choose, stitch the blue center, or just the two stars on a very dark linen.  Full size is 51 w x 59 h, blue center is 33 w x 41 h.  Haven't stitched it yet, but the colors are simple.  One to print in color, and one in black and white.  Any problems or errors, please let me know, but you should be able to click on the photo and then right click to print.   Would love to see photos if any of you decide to stitch all or part.

 
As you know, Gold Star families are those that have lost a loved one in service to country.  Seems appropriate for Memorial Day.

Thank you. My brother-in-law, my husband's brother, was seriously injured in Viet Nam and took his life in July, 2016. I plan to stitch this in his memory, possibly twice and, if so, will give one to his widow who is still in horrible pain over losing him. Thanks again.

Thanks Marly. With my son in the Army, I celebrate Memorial Day in a big way. Not one day goes by that I am not thankful that I am not a gold star mother. He served 2 tours in Iraq as a Blackhawk pilot.

Thank you, Marly. I'm enjoying all of the other Americana charts that you've shared and I've stitched.
Happy Sunday.

Thanks for thinking of lost service members. My husband and I are both retired AF and we lost a few good friends during our time in service.
