A little 4th of July tatting using Jane Eborall’s Beaded Lock Chain pattern in Lizbeth #652 blue and #671 Red in size 20. I wanted to make it out of size 10 but I didn’t have red and blue in it. The beads would have worked better with size 10 as well, but it was fun to make.
Today is pretty soggy due to heavy rains last night and light rain off and on today, but it is supposed to clear up by tomorrow night. At least all the rain makes shooting off fireworks very safe this year 🙂
Wishing all of you in the States a happy and safe Independence Day!
The Star Spangled Banner
Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
By Francis Scott Key 1814
