Happy 4th of July all you American Cuties and good day to the rest of the Cuties! I am finished (unless I make potholders-lol) working on my runner, turned tablecloth, and my window topper to match. (Looks like I need to adjust one end!) As you can see too, in the bottom photo, I took out the center row, of the runner/tablecloth, like I was suppose to. I also took one row off of each side out to make it narrower. I really could have used a nice RWB centerpiece but since hubby & I are 4th of July celebrations this year :( nothing like past years....

Thanks Shirley, I wanted to try and see, if I just used the narrow strips I could have enough, for a design you could recognize or look like it matched.

Toogie, you do such beautiful work! I made a small strip of bargello years ago for a vest and I knew I was done...………

Oh , that’s nice of you to say. I’ll bet your vest was very nice. They are fun to make and very easy, at least I think so.

PERFECT! Also love your collection of teapots.

I like teapots. My sister remembers I used to sing, I'm a little teapot short & stout.....well I must have sang it to much because I became short & stout!-lol-she has bought me most of them.

Toogie you are so prolific and creative. Beautifully done. Seems like the more time I have, the less I seem to get done. Cheers Lynne in OZ

What else do I have to do! A good thing I have my fabric stash to keep me occupied/busy, and you can't even tell these fabrics are missing-lol- The red grid fabric was French Rooster Diamond Motif by Suzanne Nicoll from Springs Creative. I got it for 75 cents a yard! I still have a yard and a half left. Thanks for looking.

Thank you C-we are having the quietest 4th we've ever experienced. While sitting on the front porch this morning, I told dh to listen. The only sound was 'Avery's' birds chirping. I always call them her birds as she enjoyed them so much, when she was living here. No drifting smells of BBQ around. We all miss our big BBQ we usually have, but it couldn't be helped. Just learned we have one niece with corona.
