These are a few pictures we took last night
of the sky behind our house. It was just breathtaking. I have been making peasant tops out of fabric I bought from this fabulous quilting store. It is nicer, more expensive fabric than I normally use, but the outfits are turning out beautiful. I'll try to post some of them later. This week I have to get to work making 14 little girls aprons for Sarah's birthday party. I like to make something nice & affordable instead of sending the kids home with cheap junky stuff their mom will throw away when they aren't looking. I know you've done it too!

Fabulous Fourth!

We had a huge cookout to celebrate the 4th of July. About 50 people came. We grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, and had some great side dishes. Everyone brought something, it's nice to taste other people's favorites. We had black bean/barley salsa, baked beans, spicy spinach dip -yum! And of course there were way too many desserts! Sharon's banana pudding was the best. I made the girls coordinating outfits for the party. They also wore them to church on Sunday. Another sewing mama brought her little one in the cutest little vintage print romper. It had little old-timey kids eating burgers & having a cookout on it.

We had a pretty big fireworks display after dark. Everyone realy enjoyed it. We could also see the fireworks from the Lake display from here too. I had no idea they could be seen frmo this far away. We hadn't finished the house yet this time last year, so that was a nice surprize. I hope all of you had a great weekend also.
