This feisty cross stitch project connects directly to the independent spirit of Texans. What is it about Texas that produces and promotes such an attitude among those who live there? Is it something in the air or in the water? Could it be the sheer size mentality? Or is it something in the past that has been brought forward generation by generation? Whatever it is, you can see it and even feel it everywhere. Whether you already live in Texas or are a Texan wannabe, you can stitch and frame this design to proclaim your Texas connection, and to alert all others to watch their step.

The Texas Ranger Division, the oldest law enforcement agency in the United States, has investigated crimes and tracked down fugitives since 1823. The famous phrase, "One Riot, One Ranger," came to life when Ranger Bill McDonald was sent to Dallas to prevent an illegal prize fight and the mayor reportedly asked where the other Rangers were.

Texas Flags Counted Cross Stitch Kit
Although a number of flags are associated with the history of Texas, the four flags featured in this kit are particularly significant. In the so-called Alamo Flag, "Texians" placed 1824 at its center as a means of protesting the steady erosion of rights granted by the Mexican constitution of that year. The First Flag of the Republic included the single white star that came to signify the Texas "Lone Star" perspective. The Third Flag of the Republic became the official state flag of Texas when it joined the United States. The "Come and take it" flag includes the image of a cannon that Texas defenders dared Mexican forces to attempt to capture during the Texas Revolution.
