Wow. That's a cool project. I'm impressed. I was thinking along the same lines as salmonmac but she has a better grasp of it, thank goodness! I hope we get to see the flag when it's done, as you go along pics would be nice too. Could you post a photo of the Norwegian flag you've done? Please, pretty please.
