    One of my recent projects that I have been working on..it's a wallhanging - NEWFOUNDLAND FLAG....being originally from Newfoundland I wanted something from back home - but with a bit of a twist on vintage - so I tried to achieve that with these colors...Love the way it turned out...hand quilted it with a simper stitch around the pieces and now just needing to do the binding.

    Beautiful work. Thanks for the link. Being an original South Coaster myself, it is always nice to hear from fellow "Rockers".

    Wonderful job, Bill. Hope you get to go home each year. There seem to be many NLers, or relatives of NLers, living in other provinces and in the U.S.
