Wouldn't it be wonderful, if all across the U.S., Americans had a patriotic Christmas Tree!! It would be a true symbol of what we all take so much for granted - our Freedom to live as Americans - at the most wonderful time of the year. And it will be a special tribute to those who lost so much. Please use a portion of your profits from these patterns to help those in need.
God Bless Us All, Lori Cagle
