Fireworks all round

Happy 4th of July and God Bless America!  I have had a really great long weekend working on Baltimore Quilt blocks, knit socks for my BFF, and actually cooked something in the slow cooker.  The block for the BA is not finished, but here is a pic of one that is done.

This laurel wreath has 3 dimensional flowers to set it off.  It was fun to make the flowers and learn a new flower to make.  More pics of additional blocks to come.  I love to applique because it is relaxing and creative.  The blocks are those many women have created before but each one has it's creator in it and they each speak separately while bonding many women together.  The women who first created them had no idea what they were sending down the ages.  Thanks to them, I can imagine their world just a little.  They were in the history of creating a new nation, I am in the history of keeping it alive.
Until the next stitch, keep the stitches alive and live well.

Happy Independence Day
