Yes, I know I am a week early. But, in my own defense, I wanted to make a new wall hanging. Let me explain, a couple of years ago, my son brought home artwork from school. I went to put it away (I do save them), and he was hurt that I wasn't going to show it off. Being ingenious, I took a piece of driftwood that had been kicking around, added some ribbon and put up his two pictures. Voila! We change it out whenever we feel like it, or see something funky.... Right now, we have some glass globes we made at Corning Museum of Glass. They will come down for a week or two as we celebrate Memorial Day.
This project highlights my mother. As you can see, she was a MARINE during World War II. Yep, my mother was a Marine....lol....not too many people can say their mom was a Marine, let alone one during WWII. She passed away in 2008 (on, appropriately, July 4th) and this will be our tribute this year to her service to our fine country.
This project will be hung in the middle of my 'limb' and some stars will go to the left and right to highlight the collage. It makes for a big piece of artwork for a small amount of money on a wall where for the last few years we had our entertainment center.
I have entered this project at Sew Many Challenges #15. Owen is the last of the military digis celebrating Memorial Day over there! Please stop over and see them, pick up Owen and leave them some love!!
