patchwork quilt

I have been working on patchwork quilts for Sam and Henry. Today seems like an appropriate day to share them as they are fairly patriotic. It was a dreary morning full of fog and drizzle, I got the kids on the bus and thought about Sept 11. It conjures up all kinds of emotions. By the afternoon when the kids were due home I went outside with Henry. The neighbors had put out their American flags, the sky had cleared and the sun was bright. To see the flags waving boldly against that crystal blue sky really renewed me. I am proud of my country.
