Happy July 4 ... and Debunking the Myths

Wherever you are in the world, Happy July 4th.  Everyone has a July 4th, right?  So, may it be a great day for you!

And to my friends in the United States, Happy Independence Day!  May your Fourth of July be filled with lots of love, laughter, family and/or friends, good weather and good health.


Don’t get sunburned at that parade!
Don’t eat too much of Granny’s homemade apple pie!



But DO enjoy these vintage images!  Hopefully I’ve dug up some that are new to you from my collection.


These are some of my favorites, because there are no guns depicted in them.  To me,  guns and celebrations do not go together.  Just my opinion.



Hubby and I ran across an interesting read about myths of the American Flag.  Read it here.  For example, did you know that Betsy Ross did NOT design or stitch the first American Flag?  As needle workers, I thought that might pique your interest!



I will be back in a couple days to show you my finished Sendai block (Hearts and Hands for Sendai - a quilters fundraiser for our Japanese friends).  

Hugs,
Cathy maroon
