If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Building Uncle Sam

Now I know some of my blogger friends are wondering what in the world is she doing, how does she find the time to get things done and what her secret???????? OK, I'll tell........I'm alone.......meaning.....not married, no significate other, no children (the boys are far, far away), no pets....well the hummers are fluttering around but they don't count. No phone interruptions, no mom....for the moment, she's away.........nothing, nada, zilch to bother me hardly ever. So I should be doing more but I do have to do house work, laundry and grocery shopping sometime. Now that that's out of the way...here's my latest project. I've been thinking about making a patriotic quilt for quite awhile now, so what better time to start than Father's Day. I enjoy taking pictures as some of you know so well and wanted to chronicle what I did nearly step by step. The Uncle Sam pattern came from an old Quiltmaker magazine July/August 2000 # 74. So far, I think I'll only do one more border around Sam and start on my next block of the quilt......an eagle.
The block measures 13" X 33" so far.

Uncle Sam looks very dignified and patriotic indeed. Thanks for the step-by-step pictures. It is very interesting to see how it went together. I like the pieced background behind him too.

It amazes me how shapes and colors make such WOW statements. Another great success.

I love this Uncle Sam. In fact a friend used him in a border in a round robin, and he was great
