I will be working a Patriotic ornament into my rotation this month for the 15th entry, Barbara, of mainely stitching. I am thrilled the randomizer came up with her number since I have been enjoying her blog for nearly as many years as I have been blogging myself. Hers was one of the first stitching blog that I added to my must read list. I have been following her doings from her time as an Maine-lander living in Holland to her return to the States and her laudable efforts to set up a self-sustaining homestead in her beloved Maine. I want to be her when I retire from teaching!
