When I was a child (back in the old days), this holiday was the last taste of summer freedom before school began, typically the following day. Today, most schools head back to the classroom in late August for reasons that remain beyond my comprehension.
If you're a regular, you've noticed it's been a month or more since my last post. I've been busy on every front, juggling a wide variety of work-related projects and chugging like the little engine that could to meet some very challenging deadlines.
Since something had to give, small bits of spare time went toward knitting rather than blogging. I haven't a lot to show for the fruits of my labors, but in honor of the last major red, white and blue holiday of the summer season, I thought I'd share this. (Brace yourself, the photo is pretty sorry.)
Wherever you are, I hope you had a lovely weekend, and you took a moment to enjoy the fruits of your labor. I'll be back again soon, I promise, and I hope you will be, too.
