Independence Day and One-Flower Wednesday

Encouraging words of the day:

Dear Lord,
There is no greater feeling of liberation than to experience this freedom from sin and death that you have provided for me through Jesus Christ. Today my heart and my soul are free to praise you. For this I am very thankful.
On this Independence Day I am reminded of all those who have sacrificed for my freedom, following the example of your Son, Jesus Christ. Let me not take my freedom, both physical and spiritual, for granted. May I always remember that my freedom was purchased with a very high price. My freedom cost others their very lives.
Lord, today, bless those who have served and continue to give their lives for my freedom. With favor and bounty meet their needs and watch over their families.
Help me to live my life in a way that glorifies you, Lord. Give me the strength to be a blessing in someone else's life today, and grant me the opportunity to lead others into the freedom that can be found in knowing Christ. Amen 

Happy Birthday to the United States of America.  Today is a day of celebration for all Americans.  My husband and I visited our family in New Mexico earlier in the week so have been celebrating Independence Day all week.  I did a little hand-sewing on our road trip to New Mexico and managed to make 3 more tiny little ½ inch hexie flowers.  They are so cute but somewhat difficult to make since they are so small.

Not much sewing going on.  I’m off to continue 4th of July celebrations at our neighbor’s for a cook-out.

Oh, I did find a giveaway on the quick blog browsing I did:

"Quixotic Crafter” is giving away a fat quarter pack of 5 bright prints from the Hot House fabric line. - ends Jul7 8th.

That is all.

Love your wee little hexies! I'm making a few tiny flowers for a project. THey can be hard to handle, but they require fewer stitches, so they go fast. Happy 4th!

Those tiny hexies must be hard to sew. Yikes! I'm not sure my hands would be happy sewing something that small.
