Ready to fly high!

Finished!  I’ve had my head in a project the past week and it took a lot longer than I expected.  Of course, I wasn’t working on it every minute, but lots of minutes!

My love goes on RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa) every year with my brother the vet and his daughter the vet and a bunch of other relatives and friends. They have an old school bus outfitted for the trip and hire a bus driver and everything.  RAGBRAI attracts about 18,000 riders (with their attendant buses and drivers) and it is always a challenge to find each other at the end of each day. Soooooooooooo………..

My brother’s son Chris, a graphic artist, came up with the design and I transferred it to ripstop nylon for a nifty flag that the bus driver can use to help the riders spot him. I did make some changes to the original design, just for sewing purposes – hope Chris doesn’t mind.

The flag isn’t really needed until July, but my brother’s birthday is coming up and his son thought it would be a great gift. Bro is not one to be on the internet, so this should be a safe secret till Sunday!
