Ten Days Ago

Ten days ago, we spent the afternoon laying out the stars on the blue canton.
I hope this picture gives you an idea of how large it is….16′ x 16’……feet!
The stars are two feet wide.
We couldn’t reach the center of the tables, and it was a challenge to “spangle” them just right…but we did it!

Today we only have four more stars to finish! Our goal is Wednesday August 14 and I know we are going to make it!

Also today we met a real live flag maker! His name is Steve and he was so much fun to talk to. He knew exactly what we were doing with the stars, and he took a few stitches. He makes flags for historical reenactors but isn’t one because they fight….duh! He really meant they fight over details. Sorry I forgot my camera today.

We’re getting there!
