Tomorrow, the 4th of July, is Independence Day in the United States. It was 235 years ago, in 1776, that our Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress paving the way for the formation of a new nation. Throughout the country there will be parades, picnics, fireworks, and concerts to celebrate our country's birthday. One of my favorite things to do on the 4th of July is to watch the Capitol 4th concert on Public TV. Do you have favorite things you like to do?
It seems very fitting to today post these photos from Lisa P. of Oxford, Ohio of her Long May She Wave needlecase. Lisa took this class two weeks ago with a group of her friends here in Cincinnati.
Here is the front of Lisa's case.
And here is the back.
The next photo shows the entire case opened up to see both the outside front and back.
And here is a view of the inside. Lisa followed my suggestion of changing the position of the pocket and the needlepage and pinkeep so that she could better see the darling scrimshaw ruler. That is why the inside of her case looks different from my model.
