Found the Name

You followers know I was struggling on a name for this wonderful patriotic antique adaptation.  Just now it came to me ~ Pride, Honor, Freedom.  

The words hit me while placing the rug on the floor to take a photo.  There was no doubt the first word would be Pride since I truly am proud of our United States of is an Honor to live in a country which has the Freedom we so preciously embrace.  

That freedom isn't free because many men and women have died serving in the military to protect and keep our country FREE from foreign threats and our men and women in the Police and Homeland Security in the US from internal threats.  God Bless America!

Such a shame some folks don't share the same sentiment and would prefer to riot, burn and harm police officers.  And if they don't like living here they should move somewhere else and see how life is there. 
This original design was huge but drew mine out to a comfortable hooking size (for me) of 16 x 35.

The hurricane is getting closer and I'm as prepared as can be.  Even my ex emailed asking if I was prepared for this.  I responded and thanked him for thinking of me.   I've working flashlights, have solar lights, candles, water, food and hope the wind doesn't push over more trees as in the past.  Particularly the one behind the bedroom which would cross right over my bed.  

Thought I'd better make this post just in case I've no electricity tomorrow.

Thanks to all of you who follow me and have purchased patterns recently.
