I remembered my mom's saying:
A Day Late and a Dollar Short.
Well as I put this post together I realized
Flag Day was the 14th.
I was supposed to post this on that day.
I created this latest pillow tuck
for those who want to celebrate
Flag Day and July 4th.
I wanted to make this in patriotic colors.
The flowers centers are red glass beads.
This was my drawing.
Long May She Wave was my title.
Used wool for the entire project.
The back is the same background as the front.
With July 4th approaching fast,
I also created another cookie.
Our small town will host their
84th Pickerel Tournament Festival.
From June 30th thru July 4th.
Fireworks, parade, carnival.
Pickerel ( walleye fish) contest for adults
and one for kids.
Kayak race around the nearby islands.
4K foot race.
They will also have an antique boat show.
Chris Craft was founded here in our small town.
They created wood cruiser boats that were
sold all over the world.
Founded in 1874, the company was sold
by the family in 1960, but another company
still makes them...in another state now.
Then there will be a Beer tent, bingo tent,
with live bands each night.
Hot dog, pie and watermelon eating contest.
Oh yeah plus all of the carnival food.
Something for everyone!
I know we will be going.
Do you live in an area where
you have festivals for July 4th?
Do you like going to fireworks?
Fireworks & Flag Blessings To All!
