|Valentine and Ginkgoes, Quilt by Ann Fahl|
My father would always put on his little rusty orange metal pin that he found in an antique shop, and tell everyone about Remember the Maine Day. My two sisters and I would be rolling our eyes, this time every year, we always hoped he would forget to put it on!
Now I feel the need to make February 15 a special day, not just the "let down" after all the Valentines and roses. This is the day the USS Maine blew up in Havana Harbor, it started a war in 1898. Now we know that the ship wasn't attacked, the explosion came from within the ship!
|Wreckage after the explosion|
I have been busy quilting a wonderful new piece, which is why there haven't been very many new posts lately. Eventually, you will all learn about what I've been doing!
Have a great Maine day.
