In Honor of President's Day

One of my goals for 2013 is to stitch, quilt,  and hook more seasonal items.  Since today is Presidents Day, the flag quilt is making its debut appearance.

This hooked rug was a class taught at Homespun Corner years ago.  I hooked about one half of the rug and my friend Jan came to my rescue and completed the rug.  (Shhh don't tell anyone, I think she grew tried of seeing it my unfinished projects pile and took pity on me).  The rug is 8" x 26"

The rug will be great to use on Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and Veterans Day.  This hooked flag is not as old as the one Betsy Ross stitched but I think it has been in my languishing in my stash long enough to qualify for her old age pension.


  1. It's wonderful! How nice of your friend to finish it for you too.

  2. I love your patriotic rug! I know that you will enjoy using it.
