A little something patriotic
Posted by Vic on Saturday, 9 June 2012
With Memorial Day just behind us, Flag Day this coming week and the Fourth of July less than a month away, we wanted to share Maegan's reproduction of a little Victorian patriotic piece. Actually, while the chart is an authentic reproduction, the original was stitched on perforated paper and Maegan opted for linen. Although we don't know anything about its origin, we were able to track down the framing source to a Philadelphia shop that was in business in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Called "Roses in July," the quick-to-stitch piece is the perfect way to commemorate these patriotic days of early summer.
