Good Morning, America!!
Heartfelt and sincere greetings on your birthday. I see that you haven’t lost your vibrant, messy, lovable, complicated-yet-simple youthfulness at age 251. So, Happy Birthday, America! I love you and always will.
In life and in politics, the best intentions can go in an unintended direction; thus went my sewing plans for a project to share with you on this Independence Day. In the grand scheme of things, the act of sewing is not quite at the topmost level; er, say that to a dedicated seamstress and prepare for backlash. Just kidding.
So lets celebrate the unintended. I’m sharing an image of the raw materials meant for a July 4th project; included are linen scraps from other projects and a navy blue remnant purchased for a long-forgotten idea. The red/white/blue linen idea is still in my head, and I’m not sure how it will turn out; the sewing elements rolling around cerebrally are, a) heirloom type stitching, b) curvy shapes, c) clueless as to what use it will be in daily life. Because, anything I make must have a function. We’ll see. Meanwhile…….
…. have a great Independence Day on this July 4th!
