On the Hand Embroidery Network, we have been trying to get people to stitch the Japanese flag to show our support to Japan in their time of need.
I have finished stitching my flag but I think I want to create a whole art piece out of it. Its a work in progress :-) I filled the circle with little crosses and then outlined the piece with split stitch.
