Welcome to the Rednesday on Veteran's Day! This is my first Rednesday. Being a lover of RED this is a perfect match for me. I discovered Sue over at It's A Very Cherry World last week and thought this was right up my alley.I decided NOT to dig through my boxes to find some patriotic red for this day to honor our veterans. Instead, I went with what you hanging around!
This is a quilt I made back in 2001. I believe it came from Better Homes & Garden....don't quote me. Super easy pattern! Just strips of stripes and saw-toothed stars! It's wall hanging size. I like to make them about 60" square. It fills my quilt rack nicely and I change them out with each season.The flag was a challenge to display. I got this one at my BIG auction two weeks ago. It came with a HUGE lot of garden tools, galvanized pails, etc. It has some tears and I'm in a quandry of what to do with it. I know you are suppose to destroy flags no longer fit to fly, but I want to keep it! I just don't know what to do with it. Any suggestions? I'm all ears!
Now getting back to the important message here. I want to say, "Thank you" to all the veterans past and present that have fought for our country. We continue to enjoy all the freedoms of the constitution of the United States of America because of YOU! To my veteran neighbors: Phil (next door), Melvin (behind and to the corner) and the "other" Phil (we share a backyard fence.) Thank you!
