This is Old Glory by Shepherd's Bush. I love the alphabet row! I started it three summers ago on our driving trip out west. I thought it was appropriate to stitch a beautiful flag while traveling across our beautiful country, but I didn't finish it before we got home. The project ended up in my WIP bag, and then became a case of out of sight, out of mind as my seasonal stitching urges turned toward different motifs.
A few weeks ago I got that hankering to stitch a flag. I was searching patriotic patterns online when I remembered my unfinished Old Glory. I was thrilled to find that all I needed to do was finish the bottom row of flowers, so it only took a few nights to complete. Yay! Three years later, it is done.
