This week's prompt seemed particularly appropriate as we are on holiday in the USA.
I couldn't resist trying to imitate the lady sowing in the picture.

Every time, well nearly every time, we visit our daughter's home we are greeted by the flags.
|St George's Cross and the Stars and Stripes|
There are times when the Union Jack is flying too.
|Stars and Stripes and the Union Jack|
The Union Jack also has pride of place where it can be admired by the dogs.
|Gem and Scout look down into the basement|
Lily refused to be left out of the act.
|She thinks she always is the star.|
That painting above the desk is of Nyhaven in Copenhagen, a place I been to many times.
|The Danish Flag flying at Nyhaven|
The 17th of May is a special day for Norway when flags are sure to fly to celebrate their independence as a nation.
Flags are also flow as memorials of past conflicts. I found these in Cornwall.
|Boer War Memorial, Truro Cathedral|
When Lily became the central attraction however, she was not that keen on posing with the flag.
She just wishes I would put the camera down and get out the tennis balls. I'm surprised she was so patient and even more surprised that my wife agreed to pretend to sew just to keep the old so-and-so (that's me) happy with the pictures.
For more flags, sewing and other interpretations you need to cross over to Sepia-Saturday-194.
