Flag Fail

What a crazy hectic day this has been.  Kielyn came home from daycare yesterday morning with the stomach bug :(  Needless to say she had a bad day.  I am working from home today so I can stay with them, and yes today she feels fine!  I am sure Taylor will get it on tomorrow or Saturday.  Booo!  And today has just been one of those days, everything that could go wrong has gone wrong and there isn't a whole lot I can do from home to fix the problems.

Anyway last night I decided to make some more 4th of July decor.
Cute fabric pennant garland, love it!

And then I decided to make another flag.  I started with some fabric strips and ironed them onto fusible interfacing (or at least that's what I think it's called).  I had found a frame at a garage sale and wrapped it in muslin.  Here is the finished product, I just don't love it.

Maybe it's the frame?  I might like it better if it was painted black instead of wrapped in fabric.  Back to the drawing board on this one.

I think it's the frame, too, because I just LOVE that rosette-adorned flag!

I think it's a cute idea...yeah, I think I like it better in black too. Speaking of contaminated homes, I just found a FLEA on my dog this morning. Ewwwwww.yuck.yuck.yuck. So I'm on purging the house patrol today. Just not w/ germs like you - but creepy crawly invaders. Wish me luck!
