It started, very early, with a BOOM out on the Ingalls homestead.

Carrie asked: "Who is it ? What are they shooting ?"

and Pa replied: "It is fourth of July, Carrie."

Then Pa sang:

"Hurray ! We'll sing the jubilee

Hurray ! The flag that sets men free."

(Laura Ingalls Wilder, "Little Town on the Prairie")



Happy stitching my dear friends !!!
