Raise Our Flag - Donate a Stitch

I haven't posted in an entire month!  So what have I been doing?  Well, for one, the Summer Olympics are almost here and I've been watching the team trials over the last few weeks.  I am fascinated by the talent and ability of all these athletes and the competition is exciting.  The most interesting so far has been the synchronized diving and tonight the women's gymnastics.  What does this have to do with sewing, you say? Well check this out:

I just added a stitch to help Raise Our Flag at the Summer Olympics.  Proceeds go to the support the USA Olympians but even if you don't want to donate a stitch you should check out the website to see a flash video of the flags being made.  Pretty dang cool!!    Below are my stitch numbers...I bought two!
Anyway, I thought it was a great way to participate in the Olympics and to celebrate the 4th of July - Independence Day!
Happy 4th!

Great that you added "Stitch" to "Raise the Flag"...thought one evening when watching the 'trials' I would do that, but didn't do so yet...such a good program to support. I enjoy watching the gymnastics too!
