The Crochet Flag
This project came to us during our Armed Forces Day sale. The Flag was a gift from one family to our customer, Roni. As we talked to Roni a little about the flag, we learned it was originally given to a friend of Roni’s as a wedding/house-warming gift. The flag was crocheted by a lady named Glenny, over the span of one winter and part of the spring. When Glenny and her husband came up to Alaska, they gave it to Don & Christina. Don has since pasted away and Christina wanted the flag to go to their good friends Roni and her husband. Roni felt that the only way to truly appreciate the flag would be to frame it. Her exact words were, “ What else are you going to do with something so special, fold it up and put it in a closet? Of course you have to frame it!” We all thought that a shadow box would be best in order to show the entire beauty of the flag. We decided on a darker blue mat color and the frame is a rustic style. The Frame is a Larson & Juhl, with a medium stain and a gold inner trim. The shadow box was oversized; it measured 58½ by 40. With each picture I will explain the framing process.
