Happy 4th of July! I have to admit that this holiday has definitely gone unappreciated by me for many years of my life. But I'm older now and a bit wiser. I don't always agree with the leaders of this country. I don't always agree with the policies in place. However, as a woman, I can look at so many other countries and have a true appreciation for the USA. I have rights here, I have opinions that I can express. I can wear what I want, say what I want, be with whomever I want. We have freedoms here that some other countries can't even begin to comprehend. So, for that I am thankful.
Now, this is probably one of my least favorite quilts I've ever made, but being that it is Independence Day it seemed appropriate. It is part of a 12 month series. I trade out the quilt for the next one each month.
TGFC (Thank God For Coffee)... Yes, I am addicted to my morning coffee. I didn't use to be a coffee drinker, but now I can't start the day without it... two cups of it to be precise. I have to have it with two packs of Splenda and one teaspoon of non-fat, non-dairy creamer. It is the cure-all in the mornings for me. It helps when I have morning headaches, it helps stave off my asthma attacks, and most importantly it helps to wake me up as I am NOT a morning person. It improves my mood and helps to make me a better mom and wife. It even helps to motivate me to get quilting. Yes, I know, I sound like a true addict!!! I love my morning coffee! And I know that it is the caffeine that really makes it so wonderful. But, I don't exceed my two cups and I have caffeine free drinks the rest of the day. So, that is my way of rationalizing my "habit". So, God bless coffee and God bless any other "addicts" out there. ;c)
