Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
I am having fun playing with primitive rugged fabrics this week. Little coffee stained flag ornaments were made using ticking material and various calico. I added Paper Whimsy fabric faces and word art to the fronts.
The little blue jean toddler vest and dress (be still my heart – it is sooo cute in real life) has antique/vintage laces and mother of pearl buttons.
Getting ready for the official start of summer with Memorial Weekend.
I hope each one of you has a safe and Happy Memorial Day!
