Also known as the 4th of July.  Below is a rug designed and hooked by Polly Minick.  I haven't hooked the whole thing, only her shorter version of the boy and dog in the center.  So enjoy Polly's holiday themed rug.
John Hancock was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence.  A cleaned up copy of the antiquity is below.
If you would like to read a transcript of the document, you can read it by clicking HERE.  It will also provide the names of the signatories.

Enjoy a safe and fun holiday.  Just remember this heat has caused the grass and other vegetation to be a fire waiting to happen.  The smallest spark could cause a fire so please be careful with fireworks, BBQ grills and bonfires.



  1. We are very hot the ancient air conditioner in the window is holding us hostage.

  2. Happy 4th of July to you ...hope you are drying out some. Thunderstorms are about to start here.
