Happy 4th Of July

Happy 4th of July to all of us....
I was reflecting about the 4th of July. I know that through out our history freedom has come at a great price. Even those 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence. What they must have given for our freedom, and liberties that we have today. I know some were tortured until they died, homes were burned, families lost, some died in poverty Some lost sons fighting in the war, some sons became prisoners. Some actually fought in the war and died to wounds. What's even more amazing they still signed knowing what a cost it would be....

I am so thankful for them and all that they gave for so that I might have freedom, liberties. Thankful, because they were men that stood tall in a belief.

Thank you, all those who fight for freedom, to be free, to have liberties, so that I have freedom, and my family can have freedom, God bless you and your families.
I know freedom can come at a great price and I strive to teach my children to remember all that was given, and that freedom should not be taken for granted.

Happy 4th of July!

A New Roof and A Finished Crochet Rag Rug.

Well it was exciting today hubby got the roof on the house fixed... Hooray! We had a huge storm during the winter months and there was some damage to the roof. But no more it took my wonderful hubby the entire day but it's finished and ready to go. Phew! what a hard accomplishment, we have a rather tall house so it was a lot for one person to do.

I finished a rag rug from wool yarn and the crochet rag rug came out very colorful. The hook I used was my 10 1/2 and I just did that simple stitch.
The rug measures 28x28. The color of the yarn was called Licorice.
Remember there is a great sale going on in my store and a contest.
So be sure to come and a peek.
