Happy Birthday, USA!

Happy Birthday USA!

It’s the anniversary of the USA’s declaration of independence from England. This isn’t Betsy Ross sewing the flag, but it is the most appropriate shot I have for the occasion. After all, there is red, white and blue in the picture. (I know, it’s a stretch.)

    No stretch at all – very nice photo of a lady dressed traditionally, doing traditional chores (or craft, depending upon your perspective).

    Very lovely photo! I like it.

    It isn’t a flag, it is a nine patch! Cool quilt, cool photo.

    Annie, it’s a traditional craft that’s a real chore! 🙂

    Tanty, glad you like it. I find the lady’s expression very charming and soothing.

    Sarah, I know it’s not a flag, I was joking about the Betsy Ross thing. A nine patch…you must be a quilter! Did you notice there is in fact a tiny American flag in the center of the quilt? I didn’t notice it myself until after I posted it.

    Oops! I just looked at the photo in large size, and I was wrong about the tiny flag. I’m off to see the optician now! 🙂
