A Crocheted Flag

In between organizing my laundry room and other household tasks, I brought out my Independence Day decorations. This flag was crocheted by my Mom about thirty years ago. Each star was sewn on individually. My Mom was a crochet genius, making the most difficult patterns and in record time. Her afghans are treasures, and this one especially, because we worked on it together. Mom crocheted, I sewed on the stars and cut the fringe. A collaboration I'd give anything to have just one more time. A treasured memory, a beautiful flag. Enjoy this beautiful day.

Hi Penny! Gorgeous throw, made even more lovely by the memories that are attached to it : ) I am a big fan of American flags, in pillows, framed on the wall, and of course, flying proudly on a flag pole in front of our house! Thank you for the very sweet comments that you left on my recent post ~ it truly means so much. I'll pop around again, soon! xx Suzanne
