Happy Memorial Day!

With tomorrow being Memorial Day, I wanted another Memorial Day decoration that then could be carried into the 4th of July. Here is what I came up with this weekend:
I love these blocks!
If you remember, I love the oversize blocks! I have made them for other holidays too. Here are the previous blocks:
Joy Blocks
Joy Blocks for Christmas
Chunky Love Blocks
Love Blocks for Valentines Day

And now, for the patriotic season I have made the USA Blocks.
The blocks are about 10 inches tall and 5 inches wide.

For the "U" I added a denim flower. What's more American than Levi's? 
The embellishment for the "S" is the red/white twine.  
For the "A" I added the cute red/white/blue banner.  
I just think it turned out super cute!

And, a special thank you to ALL of the service men & women that protect my freedoms. The courage that you display by protecting our country is inspiring and I am indebted to you forever!
