Happy Fourth!

Hey everybody! Happy Fourth to you! We went to our local parade and fireworks last night. We braved the major heat. The parade was at 7:00 and it was still in the upper 90's. We needed to do something fun. My nose continues to heal. The tape is still on. Our hearts will begin to heal as well.

Hey! You couldn't guess this would be my patriotic finish?! HA! I love it! I finished stitching this two days ago, but did not finish it up into a pin pillow until today. You can find the free pattern here. It is from Paulette Stewart. I have had this in my stash for quite a while. It needed to be done. :) I was going to add some red trim, but decided against it. I like it too much this way.


I found this great fabric last year at our quilt shop in town.

This is my wonderful gift I received from Michelle yesterday.

The perfectly matched beautiful fabric on the back. With her sweet little card. I love it. AND I have nothing like this. :) Thank you Michelle.♥

Happy 4th of July to you all also. Your parade sounds like fun but I just cannot imagine such heat ! We are not used to that here in Ireland at all so I hope you to stay safe.
I'm glad your nose is healing and your hearts will also with time, time is a wonderful healer.
That is a lovely pin pillow Vickie and very you. Lovely prize that you received very pretty.

Happy 4th to you to. Your Yankee Poodle is sooo cute. Perfect. What a beautiful pillow you received. Love the border stitches, very pretty. We haven't had our fireworks yet. 3 hours to go:))) Yep hot here today also. but not in the 100's, its 96.
Proud of you getting out Vickie, and especially good for your children to have family time.
