I must share one thing that really impressed me about the charts. I noticed that there were lots of houses that were similar in color. I thought I would change a few. Thank goodness, before I did that I looked on line at the real houses of the patriots. Much to my surprise, the houses on the chart were very much like the real houses. The designer at LHN did a remarkable job in recreating the actual, houses!! I love history so this just made my day!!!!
Here is my family square. Capt. Gatliff joined the Revolutionary Army in 1778 so I chose that date. Again as a nod to history, the dates on all the charts were personalized to the particular person honored in that square. Along with Capt. Gatliff, Christiana, his wife and Martha , his mother are considered patriots by the DAR.
My final way to honor this design was to frame it in a wonderful frame by my favorite framers at Valley House Primitives!! Janet worked very hard with me to get the perfect frame for my piece. My goal was to have this framed and up by May when I put out lots of patriotic things. Thanks to Janet, I made my deadline!! This however, will hang in my hall all year around.
I have stitched a few more things and promise I will do another post before the 4 months it took to do this post. Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope you all have a wonderful week!
