Last weekend we had family over to celebrate the Fourth of July. So much good food(that I forgot to take photos of), a friendly football game, celebrating my Moms 88th birthday, water balloon fights and great fireworks. We have a pretty good view of our cities fireworks right in our own backyard, so that's pretty great.
As I was cleaning the house and decorating for the party, I was in serious need of a table runner for our dining room. That definitely wasn't in the budget, but then I remembered I had a few rows of squares I had sewn together years ago---I think 10 years to be exact! I quickly pieced them together, found some navy fabric for the back and in no time had myself a new Patriotic table runner. I tied it with a few strands of cotton off white yarn---I really love it. I just can't believe it took me 10 years :) I'm sure I have a hundred more half completed projects too. I think I will slowly work on that each month. It's such a feel good thing.....you know?
We also grabbed our favorite treats a few days before and found a movie in the park. Jake was so excited it was The Lego Movie.
Happy Weekend to you and yours :)
