Half the Year is Over – July 1, 2023

Half the year is over. Today is July 1, 2023. The beginning of a holiday weekend. This is the time of the year when America commemorates the Declaration of Independence, a document that was ratified by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, establishing the United States of America.

I wanted to take the time to write this post this morning, but I have been under the weather for the last week. A nasty bout of stomach flu hit me so fiercely that it has laid me out for quite a while. Still not over it yet, but I am on the mend.

This time of year always reminds me of the lovely flag quilt that I made. It brings so much joy to me, and I love the Americana of it all. 

She sure is a beauty! It is one of my favorite pieces. I had a few issues with it, but overall, a great reminder of why I love this time of year. 

Wishing you all the time to reflect on the beauty that surrounds us!
