Welcome dear needlefolk friends...
hope you're enjoying a day of remembrance
in honor of Independence Day!
I have very fond memories of attending a
Parochial School while growing up in
Milwaukee, Wisconsin...to start the
school day our class would all stand
up beside their desk and recite
"The Pledge of allegiance"...
"I pledge allegiance to the Flag
of the United States of America,
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one Nation under God, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all."
I've always love the "Betsy Ross" Flag...such
lovely Threads Through Time!
My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of libery...of thee I sing!
Land where my fathers died,
land of the pilgrims' pride, from
every mountainside...Let Freedom Ring!
This week I'm excited to finally
spend some quality time starting my
upcoming "Bee Samplar"...
I have all sorts of fragmented thoughts floating
around in my head...I need to sort through
them and start the fun part of designing!
More updates to follow in the upcoming weeks!
