Long May She Wave Finished and Hung

Hello Blogger Friends,

I've been sewing my fingers to the bone (not really!) and have finished "Long May She Wave" flag wall hanging.  This piece was simply quilted with a line of stitching in the center of each red and cream "stripe" and six stars (outlined)in the blue field.  Because of the curved outer edge, a bias binding sewn down by hand was in order. 

Here is a picture of where I have it hanging...on this narrow wall at the top landing of our stairway.  The kitchen is on the other side of the wall.

At last, the ensemble is complete and in place.  I like them and they make me smile.

I'm also happy to report that Dino Dreams is now totally finished.  The birthday party is this coming Sunday, and all is ready to go.  I'll post a picture tomorrow, so I can take it's picture in the daylight.

I've also started my next project...pillowcases for donation to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Madison.  More on that and the story behind the donation next time.

Till then...
