  • Freedom Ribbon

    Hello Family, here is a Freedom Ribbon that I just got finished. A mother wanted it for her son in honor of his service, she asked if I could persoalize it with his rank and name. Let me know what all you experts think. I am including a photo of the sconces I just finished of my own design, I call them "Howling at The Moon". I also posted them on the new patterns and designs.

      Outstanding !! the addition of the name was an excelent touch - it put a person to the ribbon making me think of the young man himself. I am sure the Mother will be very proud of it..

        Very nice work on both Steve! As soon as you find an expert, make sure you get him or her to post so we can all learn, hehehe.

          No expert here, but I do know what I like, and both of these projects fill the bill.
          I've made several of these ribbons myself and they make great gifts as well as sell. I made a few and donated them to our local VFW and American Legion post for charity auctions and ended up getting several orders!

                I am sure the ribbon brought some tears to her eyes, nicely done.

                  Wow they look great.
                  The ribbon was especially good as it makes me think of how my son in law is doing in Afghanistan.

                    What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                    I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                    FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                    Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                    I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
