It's July 4th ! ! !

Or the 4th of July to a few folks here in the US!




I finally got around to making a holiday table topper. I really hadn't given much thought to table toppers until I started reading blogs, and as each holiday passed, and I would see cute little quilts on folks tables or islands, I always said the same thing in my head, "I've got to make me one of those holiday table toppers".
And I finally did!
(more to come about the table topper on my blog tour day, Friday!)



Here's Cooper, giving us his best Yankee Doodle Dandy impersonation. I make him wear this tie maybe two days a year, he looks real happy about it, doesn't he!

Today is the first day of the Fabulous Firecracker Five Day Fourth of July Over the Top Blog Tour Extravaganza and Monique at Open Gates Quilts is up first, I hope you have time to stop by, I'm sure there will be an interesting project and maybe even a freebie of some sort!!

To those celebrating, have a safe and wonderful 4th of July, for those of you not, eat some ice cream anyway, it's summer and it's good for you, really!!

  10. i don't think that's a smile on Cooper's face - he looks kinda pissed ... or maybe he's thinking, "Dang, I'm so purty, I can even make this doofus tie look good ... wassup?!?"

    love the daisies in your centerpiece and, of course, the topper that it is resting on - VERY patriotic!
