WIP: Kernow

At the moment I'm making a little pennant flag in honour of my home county Cornwall (Kernow is the Cornish word for Cornwall).
I drew up an image in my sketchbook and traced it onto fabri-solvy. The image is very special to me; it's Chapel Rock on Perranporth beach which is the beach I went to as a child and we have recently moved back to the area. There is still a bit of filling in to do and the writing will hopefully look a bit prettier once I'm done. Also the flag on top of the rock needs to be recognisable as a St Piran's flag.
When the stitching is finished I will rinse out the solvy and trim the fabric into a triangle before hemming it and hopefully hanging it from a piece of driftwood to display- I'm still hunting for the perfect bit of driftwood though!

What are you stitching? Please share in the &Stitches Flickr group. We'd love to see it!
