Once again we had house guests this week, so we did a bit of sight-seeing. We spent Memorial Day at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. It was a gorgeous day...and very warm! It really is an amazing monument and I hope that all of you get a chance to see it in person at some point in your life!
This flag was displayed on the back of the ferry boat and blowing in the wind. I happened to glance back as we were leaving Liberty Island and saw this image. The sight of the American flag is always poignant, but seeing it with Lady Liberty like this was pretty cool!
I did skip out on some of the sight-seeing trips, and that gave me some extra time to sew. I'm working on this quilt, called Hometown Christmas by Thimbleberries. I have three of the four of the pattern booklets completed. The sections that are missing are in the fourth booklet, along with sashing and border stirps. With any luck, I just might have this on our bed by Christmas!
