Happy Washington Birthday, Friends! I thank God today that General Washington was born, and that his life was being used mightily in the history of America.
This year, we are celebrating the General’s birthday with pies. I was going to just make a cherry pie to celebrate even though the story of Washington cutting down the cherry tree isn’t true. [Fun fact, the story was originated not too far from where I live). But Miss Baby reminded me I should make a Japanese Fruit Pie too — because it is a historical fact that Mrs. Washington had a Japanese Fruit Pie served for the Generals’ birthday. Then, somehow Miss Baby sneakily put in an apple pie request because that’s her all-time favorite pie. So, we will have three pies — for the three people who constitute my family, ha!
Another fun fact about George Washington: even though he was the first President, he still preferred being addressed as General Washington. So, Mrs. Washington lovingly referred to him as “the General”.
TAKE A QUIZ http://www.mountvernon.org/quizzes/quiz/washingtons-presidency-quiz/to test to see how much you know about this great American hero. This is a new quiz this year. I know I have shared with you another quiz in the past, but this one has totally new questions this year! :)
I actually just finished a Patriotic quilt, and have the following fabric pieces to share with you. These fabrics are Hoffman Fabrics. That fireworks print is a fun fun fabric!!! Leave a comment if you wish to receive these fabrics. You would have to pay the shipping cost of $8. I will announce the winner in a few days.
That’s all for now, Dear Friends. I have to make a quilt happen in two short days… so I have to fly for now. I hope you have a blessed rest of your day! Hugs to you.
