WIP Wednesday: Five Flags Down

I want to apologize in advance for the dark photos, but the sun in Portland has decided to take a vacation. I’ve finished five of the flags on my signal flags sampler:

wip-flags-06-03

And since people have been asking for an explanation:

wip-flags-06-03-key

Each flag represents a letter. Now you may be wondering why I say that I have five flags finished. Well, obviously, the Y isn’t done yet, and even though the Z looks done, I actually made it two squares too short and I have to go back and pick out all the red and redo it. I literally threw this piece across the room when I discovered that last night. I’ve had to do too much unpicking on this project! But I like how it is turning out.

  1. It is coming along brilliantly. It was really interesting reading the meaning of the flags. I hope your unpicking goes as quickly as possible and that you can get back on track with this lovely piece.
