Feeling Patriotic

After the news tonight about Osama Bin Laden, I admit, I am not too sure how I feel. I will say, the first thought I had was actually one of fear. My fear was that all of the followers of Osama would want to hurt the United States for killing their "leader". I am confused with the fact that people have to kill each other to make it so others can live safe. Not right.

But, in the end, the overwhelming feeling that I had tonight is one of pride for my country. Our country is the most blessed land on this earth...and we are blessed to live here. That is a blessing that I will never take for granted.

So, off to my workshop I went after I had these feelings and sat for a while. Then, it hit me. It's May ~ Memorial Day! I needed to create something to have out in May to remind myself, as well as my family, of the sacrifices that others have made so I can enjoy my freedoms.

This is what I came up with:
An AMERICA block set. I love it! 
I love the muted colors of the blocks.  
Gotta have twine... 

I like the brown blocks instead of using the traditional red, white or blue. 
So, I just want to say Thank You to every one that is serving this great country, the United States of America.
Thank you to my family, friends and everyone that is brave enough to sacrifice for my family.
