Day 130 – anchors for Independence Day

by Shannon

When I came across red, white and blue bandanas, I knew I had to make another purse. It gets even better when you notice that there are stars and anchors in the pattern. Add the rope handle and … Perfection!
One of MY personal heroes, my great uncle, was a sailor in the Merchant Marines. When I think anchors and ropes, I think of Uncle Joe.
For those of you who know my family, he was Gramp’s big brother, the man who taught us to plant our own food, grocery shop (alone at 8), respect our elders, compost, mow cemeteries and occasionally sent us in to buy cartons of Cool Menthols. I’m pretty sure there were some sparklers thrown in there too. Cheers!
