Happy Independence Day!
Hurrah its Independence Day, I just love this holiday, love all the flag waving, and firecrackering, its the best time. To me its not really summer until the 4th of July arrives. Last night near our home there was a big fireworks display. One of the nicest I have ever seen. They even managed to do fireworks in the shape of a smiley face and a heart. How they did that I have no idea but it was amazing. So what are you doing for Independence Day? We will be having a small family BBQ. We were originally expecting a lot of company this week and weekend but everyone changed plans since the weather has been so rainy and gloomy. The best thing about todays barbecue is that the guys are doing all the work. Whoohoo that makes it even a better holiday. Right now my DH is peeling potatoes for potato salad. So while both he and my son in law are working on our meal, I will take some time for me and sit down and stitch. I have been working rather slowly on my 7 Stars piece and I am loving how its coming out. Here it is so far:
I have seen so many pretty pieces Patriotic stitched items the past few days while blog visiting. So lovely. I have a few but would love to have lots more. I do have 2 small pieces that are stitched but I had planned on framing but now I think I am just going to make little ornies or pinkeeps out of them. A quick trip to the store yesterday and I found a few patriotic fabrics. Pickings were very slim but I did manage to find these 3 and got a 1/2 yard of each for just .61 cents. Pretty good huh. I wish they had more of a choice but I like to think that everyone has patriotic stitching plans too, so thats okay. I am happy with these 3 for now.
Have a safe and Happy Independence Day everybody, and if you can take a moment to remember what Independence Day is all about.
