I hope you all had a great 4th of July! Across America many enjoyed outdoor barbecues, patriotic parades, munching on hot dogs and watermelon and an evening of brightly colored fireworks! For all it was a perfect way to celebrate our nation's Independence Day!

I love to quilt! Most of my quilts are small...not for warmth, but for my love of decorating. I made my first quilt in 1991.
"I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy...
Yankee Doodle Do or Die.
A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam,
Born on the Fourth of July!"
This miniature quilt was a thank you gift that I made for the French family that my husband stayed with when he attended the 50th Anniversary of D-day in 1994. He served as a translator at the Utah Beach Ceremonies.
I am very fond of Raggedy Ann & Andy! My son, Matthew, gave my first pair to me when he was a senior in high school. He had overheard me saying that as a little girl I had yearned for my own. They are one of the most thoughtful gifts my son has ever given me. Today, I have added many more to my collection.
Can you tell that I love Red, White and Blue?? Year round my home is filled with the color red...but, in the summertime I love adding white and blue!
This photo was taken 24 years ago! My husband just returned from six months in the Persian Gulf and the Pacific. This was one of the happiest days of my life!
