Vintage Needlework of the Week

It was the Summer of 1971
and I was about 14 years old when I made this needlework patch. My friend Cindy Fisher and I stayed up all night long talking and stitching. Hers was light pink and blue and mine was the Patriotic Red, White and Blue. I sewed it onto a canvas bag. The bag has disappeared but I found this and it took me back.

Perfect patriotic post for this week of Independence Day, isn't it?
I guess not too many things have changed in my life - I still like gingham, flowers, and bright colors and I still love to stitch.

Woo-hooo! Sorry, I had to do that. Besides the neat detail, I love the "KN" because they are my initials (maiden) too. :)
