Memoral Day Dishtowel

Suddenly Memorial day has arrived; I think this may be the earliest it can be in a month?

Lois embroidered this dishtowel and it is perfect!

May we remember all those who have given their lives that we may be free. May we remember we will not stay free if we don't continue the fight.

When we allow our government to tell us what we can or can not say, we have lost freedom. When our country no longer does what it could to provide for itself, we have given up too much; when we no longer progress technologically, we are not rising to the challenge and winning; when only one side of any issue is all you can find in the national newspapers or on main TV news, warning lights should go off in our head.

For those reasons and more, the fireworks on the dishtowel seem more like warning lights.

Nice towel and good post. You're absolutely right on with your thoughts.

You have me confused. These 2 post look like embroidery work instead of crochet. Embroidery work was the first needlework I learned, and I used in one of the few quilts I ever made. Am I just not seeing this clearly and it is on a crocheted item too?

Leedra, you are so right! I was in such a big hurry this morning I did not think twice about what I was saying. You know your needle work and you are correct!

Thanks. Have a very nice weekend.

Thank you , Connie. Well said! And the embroidery work is so well done, and the subject so current. There is so much more to talk about in our love for our country, isn't there...I wish I had the tea towel. Are they for sale?
