In between organizing my laundry room and other household tasks, I brought out my Independence Day decorations. This flag was crocheted by my Mom about thirty years ago. Each star was sewn on individually. My Mom was a crochet genius, making the most difficult patterns and in record time. Her afghans are treasures, and this one especially, because we worked on it together. Mom crocheted, I sewed on the stars and cut the fringe. A collaboration I'd give anything to have just one more time. A treasured memory, a beautiful flag. Enjoy this beautiful day.
