25 FLAG 2012

“Daily Flag 25” by Eilis, Stephen & Paula at 70 Leuty Ave. 15” x 50”. Wool felt, acrylic felt and yarn. SOLD $225 Wonderful craftsmanship in Daily Flag 25, in which designs are needle felted on acrylic felt with wool felt backing and hung on a wool felt grid of twenty-five cutout circles, turns the simple felt ornaments depicting winter, Christmas and Beaches images into little works of art. Felt was used in this flag because it harkens back to handmade gifts and the simple pleasures of the holiday season. The bright colours and simple graphics capture children’s eyes and ignites their excitement, and were in fact chosen by the young daughter on this flagmaking team, who also did some of the needle felting. The Beach images – an acorn, maple leaf and a raccoon – are to remind us how fortunate we are to live in this great neighbourhood and city. The Christmas and winter images are fun, bright and lighthearted, meant to inspire the real sense of the season, simply family, community and giving. The 25th ornament, for Christmas day, with HOPE printed across a stylized planet earth, speaks to all of our hopes for the New Year.
