“Boy, if I were a lamp I'd light, or if I were a banner I'd wave.

Frank Loesser (1910-1969), U.S. songwriter. "If I Were a Bell," Guys and Dolls, Frank Music Corp. (1950). Music composed by Frederick Loewe (1901-1988).

TIME:  11:16 PM
PLACE:  Dining room
SUBJECT:  Flag banner

I’ve had this idea in my head for some time to sew a cloth flag banner to decorate for the 4th of July and finally decided that tonight, I was going to ignore all of my chores and just go ahead and make it.  I used some denim, muslin and a red striped fabric for the flags and red double fold bias tape to hold it all together.  By the time I finished putting it together and then messed around for about an hour deciding how to best to photograph it, (and I’m not at all happy with the outcome – there isn’t a whole lot of natural light available at night; I hate using the flash) it became quite late.  I am pleased with how the project itself turned out…in fact, I like it so much, I think I am going to make another one tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing the pics with us.
Your pictures over the past couple of weeks have been just great. I am sorry for my lack of visiting. I have been so busy since getting back from vacation and that was almost a month ago! Finally starting to get some vacation pics up on my photogablog site.
Take care and I will try to do better with my visits and comments!!
