Just wanted to share a couple of new rugs my mother has finished. You will see one of my newest patterns, "SAM". He is also on my website as a painting. So patriotic, the perfect summer rug and I just love the colors she used. The second Pear Tree rug is a rug that was commissioned by a very nice lady in Maine. She had seen a similar rug but wanted it quite a bit larger, so I did up the pattern and Mom hooked it for her. It was AMAZING and we are very happy she loves it!
Some exciting news for The Old Tattered Flag, the August issue of Create and Decorate came in the mail today, and our two page article was in there. I am so pleased with the article, even got a little choked up. After reading it, my mother looked up and said "wow, I'd like to meet those ladies". LOL! The write Judi, did a wonderful job and was such a nice lady, she put us right as ease as she interviewed us. Hope you can pick up an issue, they always have the cutest ideas and patterns in there as well.
Until next time......
- Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
