Happy Birthday America

God Bless America see all the trouble that we're in....wash her pretty face.....dry her eyes and then....God Bless America Again..Amen

I want to THANK all who have served and are now serving in the military, who have sacrificed so much to make us FREE, Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!! We are so BLESSED to live in the GREATEST country in the WHOLE world!!!!



Here are some pictures of a few items I have been working on this week.

I finished up these sheep and gave them a Americana look. They are made out of a chenille bed spread that has been coffee stained and dusted with cinnamon. The tag is stamped "God Keeps His Promises" and HE does......AMEN!!!!!

Here is another sheep proudly displaying our American flag along with a symbol of summer.... a slice of watermelon.

Here is a church doll stitchery I finished up, I have been working on this for awhile. A project like this is what I bring to work on when I go home to Spooner and I work on it in the evenings or when I sit and relax outside...I LOVE to stitch when I have free time anywhere.

If we all would only follow these ten commandments this society would not be in the mess it is in. I don't believe we have a financial crisis in this country, I believe we have a MORAL crisis!!!!! If people and our politicians would get back to the basics, this country would turn around quickly....I wish they would try would work...God's ways are always RIGHT!!!!!

I love imagining how mother's would make these for their little girls...what a labor of love!!!!

All tucked away ready to warm a little girls heart

Here is a view of the back to the church doll pouch...I love the way it folds up and is ready for little hands to carry.

I used a vintage linen with stitching on it for the fabric...the vintage linen gives it such a old vintage feel....I LOVE IT!!!!!

Seeing it has been so cool here it got me thinking about Fall, so I decided to get a head start and made a few Fall items.

Pumpkins ornies on a vintage spool to warm up any spot in your house.

Here are some pillows I made last year but thought I would bring them out of the season.

That's about it....Enjoy your 4th everyone!!!! God Bless America....Rhonda

Everything looks great. Our pastor preached a message yesterday about that...not acrisis of finances, but of morality and getting away from what this country was founded on ....biblicalprincipals!!!

Amen, Amen and Amen to your post! Love the sheep and the church dolls. I love that you added the 10 commandments to the sack too.
How clever of you!
God does keep His promises and those commandments are as important now as they were back then. If only we would re-prioritize our lives and seek Him like we should!
Great job on your handmades and the message included.
Hugs & blessings~ Birgit
