Flags On A Stick - Blog Hop


Hi Yall!

Today's my day, along with my other bloggers, to show off our efforts! 
Please sit back and enjoy all the wonderfully creative bloggers.
Welcome to Ravelly1 (AKA) Rhonda's blog.
Many thanks to our host Madame Samm and our great cheerleader Thearica
 
 
To see all the participants, click this LINK.
 
Ravelly1 - You are here!!
In Stitches and Seams

I live in a little community in central Texas where cows, horses, wild hogs, deer and all sorts of critters roam the land. When I first saw this blog hop I immediately signed up with no real idea in mind. As it always happens, life got in the way and I thought I'd have to pull out of the and even said as much to our wonderful cheerleader Thearica. But just this week I was able to pull something off.


I did a cowboy in silhouette...
Love that rugged look, don't you?

Added a wooden fence....Love that fabric, BTW.
Fixing fence is a way of life for a cowboy.
 
Doesn't he look handsome, rugged, mysterious......oh sorry.....now where was I.
 
Here the flag on my spotty lawn.

And here's my cowboy in action!!
 
And now for the give away. I'll bet you thought I'd forgotten.
I have two designs for the give away.
Just leave a comment to be counted. You don't have to be a FOLOWER.
I'll even ship to oversees participants.
I'll announce a winner on April 4th. Make sure I can contact you. If I can't, the give away will be given to the next number!!

Love your cowboy Rhonda! And the flag too. Ha Ha. I dated many a cowboy but didn't marry one. My best to BB and little sister.

I am very glad that you didn't pull out of the hop. This cowboy is phenomenal. You certainly caught the essence of the cowboy. The fence is a great touch, too. I'm glad to see you back in hops. Thanks for the inspiration and the spirit of getting things finished.

Melody said...

Brilliant flag and delightful giveaway, thank you

Gene Black said...

I just wanted to say that I love your flag. Please don't enter me in the drawing. I am not big on using patterns. Thanks!

Ruggedly handsome is the perfect descriptor. What a great idea! The fence is the perfect second image.

Josie McRazie said...

I think your cowboy is absolutely handsome! Thanks for sharing him with us! ;0)

StitchinByTheLake said...

I love your cowboy - really, really love him. He makes me think of all those old Harlequin books I read when I was a young thing dreaming of love. :) blessings, marlene

Doris Rice said...

Being in Texas and having a "Texas themed room" I love the flag. It's perfect!

JanesQuilting said...

I love that cow bow..what a great idea. We too live way in the country. We do not have cows or horses but I do have a cowboy that works for his neighbor, which owns over 1000 acres with lots of horses. He loves it. He looks similar to the cowboy in your flag. I love it!

Gill said...

I love your cowboy flag Rhonda - perfect!!

Leanne Parsons said...

He is very rugged and mysterious looking! Great job.

JudyC said...

Love your Cowboy flag!

And your roosters captured my heart!!!

Scrapatches said...

What a great design, Rhonda. Your flag really stands out from all the cuteness. I love bright and was enjoying all the happy colors, but this is so real and looks just rugged and right at home on your ranch. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win ... :) Pat

Vickie said...

What a Texas tribute, great flag !

patchouli moon studio said...

Yee Haw!!! That's a great looking rootin' tootin' cowboy flag!!!

Linda said...

Rhonda, your cowboy flag is wonderful!! Wow!

Kathleen said...

love the cowboy....thanks for the giveaway....

Regina said...

VERY handsome cowboy indeed!!! Fantasy cowboys are great but you have a real live cowboy, which is awesome! I live in Wisconsin, we have cows but no cowboys :( We call ours farmers.

Brenda said...

The stark black and white really emphasized the dramatic figure. And the fence is great; adds the right touch. Don't tell, but I was always secretly in love with the Marlboro man (men). You're probably too young to remember them, and, in any event, all or most have died of lung cancer.

Needled Mom said...

Excellent!!!! I love it and it is a perfect flag for you.

Carol said...

Your cowboy is so awesome as a silhouette and it looks great with that lettering. This is a really beautiful flag...nice job!

Gmama Jane said...

I'm SEW glad you didn't pull out. This flag is really superb and so appropriate for your farm or do you call it a ranch?!! I also live on a farm but I'm in Alabama. The cowboy silhouette is very well done...looks like the Marlboro Man.
Blessings

Joyce Carter said...

Hi Rhonda. Please don't include me in your giveaway. I just wanted to tell you that I really looove your flag. Your cowboy is so handsome. I just love the cowboys with their after five shadow, their hats, their boots, and their tight fitting jeans. OH MY! It is too bad we don't have them around here. LOL
