A patriotic July giveaway


It's time for the monthly giveaway!
Of course it had to be patriotic :)
A little pillow of vintage ticking and a vintage pieced quilt top "field of blue". A little coordinating star pinkeep filled with crushed walnut shells, and a gently aged flag.

We attended the town fireworks display on the 3rd of July. The Community Orchestra accompanies the display. When they start playing John Philip Sousa's "Stars & Stripes Forever" my heart skips a beat! So tell me, what is your favorite patriotic song?

As always this giveaway is open to everyone, followers and non-followers, bloggers and readers. Simply leave a comment on this post or send an email to me at pgagliardi9@hotmail.com with "Patriotic Song" in the subject line.
I'll pick a winner next Friday night...

I hope to be back over the weekend with some finishes and near finishes.

Blessings, Patti

Cute little giveaway. Our little stitching group has been working on small patriotic pillows for a get together at the end of the month.

I love going to the small town parades and hearing the bands play the patriotic marches and songs.

Years ago I took my granddaughter, who was about nine at the time, on a trip to VT. I think half the way home (hours) she was singing It's A Grend Old Flag! We still laugh about that. BTW, she was born on the Fourth of July.

Also, I'm not a big CW fan, but always get goose bumps when I hear a good, heartfelt rendition of God Bless the USA.

My family and I have been involved in the patriotic festivities in my hometown of Bonduel, WI for over 80 years. It is fun to celebrate in the same celebrations that my ancestors did for all those years. We moved away 39 years ago but make sure that we still are still involved. It is fun to watch our grandchildren still enjoy the same things that we did when we were children. It would be a pleasure to be entered in your contest. The small flag would be a nice rememberance of all the 4th celebrations. Eileen of rogerandeileen@gmail.com
