Labor Day Weekend Upon Us

Summertime? Beach balls, sand, sun, rain showers, Popsicles and laughter are all reminiscence of fun in the summer. Families getting together for barbecues, talking about old memories, sharing new ones, speaking silently of hopes and dreams and missing members gone by. July 4Th is a time for Celebration of the birthday of our country and our freedom. It was so nice for me to make a quilted flag because I realized how hard it was for someone to actually design the flag and make it all by hand. Years ago it took a lot of time to sit down, find fabrics, work it, and finish it. I , and everyone else of course, am so lucky to have everything I need to make my life so much easier to just whiz through making things (not that fast but compared to hundreds of years ago!) so it is exciting to do! I realized that if I was Betsy Ross I would have given up. I would have had no motivation! I would have been a girl on a farm just grooming the horses. I would have loved the dogs, horses, and that would have been it for me! BUT since I live in this era, give me the sewing machine girls! Sewing and Quilting is what I love now!!! So the summer of 2007 is when I learned that I am not a "Betsy Ross" girl.....
