🇺🇸Some Creative Flags for the 4th of July🎇

For my followers from other countries, I will explain one of our most revered holidays in America…Independence Day, also referred to as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the USA, commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.  The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, and were no longer part of the British Empire.  This special day is associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, speeches, ceremonies and American flags, lots of flags!!  So I am focusing on creative flags for this 4th of July post!!

✂️Hooked on Rugs and Clothes👚

My last post was about my dad’s handmade clocks…to give my mom equal time, this post is about my mom’s hooked or handmade oriental rugs…IMG_9405This is the first out of many rugs that my mom made, this one she kept for herself, it’s one of the largest she made being 3X5 feet…  I’ll try to briefly explain how she made them, at her age of 98, it’s hard for her to remember the process…  First, she picked the style rug she wanted, it comes on mesh fabric with the pattern stamped on it, similar to needlepoint… then she chose the color scheme for the wool yarn.  She made these rugs on a big Continue reading “✂️Hooked on Rugs and Clothes👚”
