I finished up all of my patriotic projects, and have them all displayed on our front porch. I am VERY pleased with the way they came out, and I am soo glad I thought of "decorating" for the various holiday's and seasons out there. I LOVE a festive feel, but honestly now that I have redone a lot of the colors and decorations in my house, I don't really like to add in the colors of the various holidays...such as the red, white and blue of the 4th of July. Decorating our porch just seemed like the perfect solution. Cute, bright, festive, and yet not clashing with any of my regular colors and decor. All I can think about now is how to deck out the porch in the future, lol. Let me show how it looks....
|CLOSER LOOK AT SOME OF THE QUILTING!|
|MORE QUILTING...I LOVE THESE FABRIC COLORS|
|AND HERE'S WHERE WE HUNG IT. IT FITS THERE JUST AS WELL AS I HAD HOPED IT WOULD. YOU WOULD THINK I WOULD HAVE MEASURED AND BEEN SURE, BUT I PREFER TO LIVE ON THE WILD SIDE I GUESS. BUT THE SIZE IS PERFECT.|
|FINISHED UP MY LOG CABIN TABLE RUNNER. LOVE THESE LITTLE RUNNERS YOU CAN BUY AS A PRE CUT KIT FROM JORDAN FABRICS!|
|AND I PUT IT HERE. DOESN'T FIT PERFECTLY, BUT GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME!|
|I WENT AHEAD AND QUILTED THESE MYSELF SINCE THEY WERE SOO LITTLE.|
|THE ENVELOPE BACKING|
|AND PUT THEM HERE. THIS RUNNER AND PILLOWS WILL BE SOOO EASY TO CHANGE OUT WITH THE SEASONS. I AM ALREADY LOOKING AT FALL AND CHRISTMAS ONES TO PUT OUT, LOL|
|QUILT IS ALL DONE. I LOVE THE WAY SHE QUILTED IT. IT WAS KIND OF CUMBERSOME TO SQUARE UP AND BIND BUT I FINALLY GOT IT DONE. I LOVE THESE COLORS!|
|AND I PUT IT OUT HERE. I WASN'T GOING TO PUT IT OUTSIDE BUT HONESTLY I HAVE NO WHERE TO DISPLAY IT IN MY HOUSE SO WHY NOT?|
|JUST HAD TO SHOW YOU HOW BIG LITTLE MISS CLAIRE IS GETTING. I LOVE HER SUIT! SHE REMINDS ME SOO MUCH OF HER MAMA WHEN SHE WAS LITTLE, LOL. SAME LITTLE TOWHEAD|
|MEL LIKES A FESTIVE FEEL TOO, LOL. DAUGHTER LIKE MOTHER I GUESS, LOL|
|COMING UP THE WALK|
|JUST HAD TO SHOW YOU MOM'S HYDRANGEA BUSH..SHE BROUGHT IT WITH HER WHEN SHE MOVED IN 6 YEARS AGO AND WE POTTED IT OUT THERE. IT'S TAKEN IT ALL THIS TIME TO BLOOM AND LOOK REALLY GOOD. WISH SHE COULD HAVE SEEN IT!|
Well guess this is it for now. If I don't post again before then hope you all have a wonderful, "festive" 4th of July. God bless the USA!
