Crochet Pattern: Patriotic FlagBy Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 3 Comments
|To those of us who live in the United States of America, the three colors that make up our flag is the essence of patriotism. When Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag, little did she know the effect it would have on her growing country. And yet it’s hard not to take it all for granted. During these summer patriotic holidays let’s try to keep in mind how blessed we are to be Americans!|
