Fourth of July

While I'm traveling, I wanted to show some of my old quilts that are buried in the archive.  If you've seen them before, there'll be new stuff on Wednesday.

This one seemed particularly apt.  "Proud to be an American," or as it will always be in my brain, "Mikes' Lone Star."  One of the wonderful things about Mike retiring is that this quilt gets to hang in our house now instead of his office.  You can check out my posts about it here.

I feel very lucky to have been able to grow up in and live in a place that offers as many freedoms and privileges (and wide open spaces and mountains, and on and on and on) as America.  Happy 4th of July everyone!  I hope you all have a chance to celebrate safely with your families or friends.  If you're not American, I vote you use it as an excuse to grab your nearest and dearest for a celebratory tipple anyway!
