Since Independence Day is tomorrow I'm sure many workers have off today as a long July 4th holiday weekend. Yet for me every day is a holiday since retiring from the 8-5 rat race.
A story about the Betsy Ross crochet flag above ~ around 1997 and driving to visit my mother I saw a yard sale and stopped. Much to my surprise was this delightful item which the man's wife must have made. Of course I snapped it up as it is a wonderful creative piece to be appreciated.
The jointed mohair bear and it's clothing was made by me as was the patriotic hat. In the vase are three purchased flags and one primitive one made by me.
At one venue in Lewes, Delaware there was a summer show and fall show. For the summer show I always made sure to have a few differently dressed patriotic dolls.
Also made many Uncle Sam dolls during my dollmaking years. After making a few found an easier way to make the Sam and hat a lot easier.
GOD BLESS AMERICA.
I also made this Velveteen America Heart. Hope you have a happy and safe Independence Day weekend.
