Grand Old Flag progress

It's a grand old flag, it's a high flying flag. Do I have you singing yet?
Started this one in june. Had planned on having the sampler done by the 4th of July. Then Peppers Pillow called to me. And when that beast called I answered long enough to finish it. Also my OTT light had needed repair for so long that I had just been working on smalls. Hubby made the necessary repairs and I am on to big projects once more.

Have made quite a bit of progress since Peppers has been finished.
Grand Old Flag, designer Rosewood Manor. 36 count flax linen, DMC varieations 4240, DMC 5200 white and Artiste Iris brand threads red.

This was June 12

Today, July 10th. Hope to have it finished this week sometime as I will be back to a few smalls for gifts and also a mailart exchange. The mailart will be a first for me and I am looking forward to putting it together. 
Short but sweet! Thank you for stopping by and happy stitching!

A lovely patriotic piece. I can't manage without my stitching lamp, I think you did well to carry on doing smalls!

Whew, that's a lot of backstitched lettering! I love the Ohio star though; that's such a neat way of stitching it.
