Quick cross stitch

I have a new laptop, and it is huge. I'm not sure I like it, but I am not going to complain. It is still not plugged into a surge protector, because we don't learn from our mistakes around here. We've had a ton of severe weather, and most days we find ourselves in a panicked dash to quick! quick! unplug the laptop! every time we see lightning. It would definitely be smarter just to buy a surge protector, now, wouldn't it?

I felt a very strong urge to do a quick cross stitch project, something appropriate for summer, and Tiny Flag, by Shepherd's Bush, fit the bill. I stitched this up in 2 nights. I really like the American flag motif in quilting and cross stitch, as evidenced in this post.

My daughter has a friend over, and right now, as I type, they have set up a project on the dining room table involving paint. Ack! I must go discreetly supervise. Such is summer vacation.

edited to add: Glitter was also involved. Oy.
