I received my flag from FoxyBlue today--and with only two flags in the gallery so far, there is already a distinct theme developing:  BIRDS!

I LOVE everything about this cute flag!  FoxyBlue said she chose a robin to illustrate "generosity" because the mama birds are always generous with the worms they feed to their young.  The word is hand painted onto canvas and machine sewn to the other fabrics. The bird and branch are hand-stitched in place, and the flower and leaves are wonderful crochet pieces which give a nice 3-D effect.  I love the colors and composition, and the small rose print, as well as the aqua plaid.  Thank you so much Deedra!!! This is just perfect for me!

nice mix of textures!  love the crochet flower...I think we are all thinking spring...birds are probably going to be a theme indeed--but that is ok, I love birds!

Beautiful flag, foxy!

No birds in my first one at least.  I haven't found the complete plot to my second one yet, so there may (or may not  Wink) be birds....
