**CLICK IMAGE FOR ANOTHER PHOTO**...I have designed this patriotic bird to sit atop this old oil can. I added two primitive stars and a strip of 100% wool as a tie around the oil can. I used Valdani thread and the piece measures about 6" x 2 1/2". I made the lined wing a separate piece, so it has more textural variation.

**CLICK ON IMAGE FOR ANOTHER PHOTO**...I had fun designing and punching this patriotic piece. I love the idea that our homes and country are protected by the stars and stripes flying overhead! After I punched this piece, using Valdani thread, I added three rusty stars with a strip of 100% wool. The piece is also lined on the back with the same wool fabric. The white stool is gently crackled and it measures about 10" long x 5 1/2" wide x 6" high. The punched piece is not attached to the stool so that it may be used year round! I am kindly asking 125.00, plus postage, for this original piece. I gladly accept paypal, MC/Visa or personal checks. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com or countrykeepers@att.net to make a purchase. Thanks for your visit today!
