September 11th will be in every American’s heart and is part of our history. When they rewrite the U. S. history books this event will be there for our children and grandchildren to learn about and remember.
Patriotic flag pin
As a crafter I have made many patriotic craft projects over the years, my favorite of all time is a beaded U.S. flag pin made by using safety pins and seed beeds in red, white and blue.
