a delayed fourth of July post
At the risk of sounding like one of those people who is always saying "oh my, where has the time gone, these summers just keep flying by". Oh my, where has the time gone, these summers just keep flying by!
We have a tradition of getting together with friends for a big bbq every year to celebrate the Fourth of July. In keeping with theme, I made another red, white, and blue dessert this year.
It's a layered berry and brown sugar pavlova and you should make it! It was as good as it looked.
Fourth of July means Antiques Extravaganza around here.
I was up early and power shopped my way through the fields of booths. I found a tablecloth with the greatest four leaf clovers all over it. It still had the tag on it.
The seller seamed a bit surprised that I was planning to take the tag off, but I do my best to use the things I buy. What's the point if these things are just going to hide in a closet?
I also found this beauty. She's a Singer 99K and she's mine now.
This photo makes me laugh because I instinctively had my hand on the machine while I was taking it - as in "back off everybody because until I can find out more, this hand means I have dibs on this baby!"
I hope everyone is having a great summer. I just finished the cutest paper pieced tablecloth so I'll be back with more soon.
