A Little Peek at MY new project....

Every once in awhile I like to make a "Rag Garland"! Having space at Vintage Village, I wanted to decorate for the 4th of July, so the red, white and blue fabric came out and a garland was started! I still have a couple more things I want to add to my garland. I will let you see it before I send it to Vintage Village to hopefully find a new home!
By the way..... How do you spend the 4th of July?

Love the garland! I wish I had enough fabric on hand to make one, but my paper collection has already taken over my creative space and I don't think my hubby would like me starting another collection, lol.

So cute!! I love it. We spend the 4th by having friends over and eating BBQ and then popping fire works. But not this year...R8 has All Stars for baseball and his tournament starts July 4th!

Charmer: Love Love Love the red white and blue. I'm such a patriot and love to celebrate all things American. Is that a Bonanza tin cup I see on the shelf behind the garland? It sure looks like one of those famous souvineers. Sea Witch

I love the rag garland you made! I made some for on my Halloween tree many years ago and it's still my favorite decoration! My 4th is aways spent with a huge slice of watermelon!

I love the garland! It is so pretty. 4th of July seems like a million days away from now....but we always have a picnic with my parents and then go see fireworks. Do you see fireworks?

What a clever idea this is, but then you are a very creative and clever gal!!! I do put out some little flags, and a wreath I've made especially for the 4th. We generally celebrate one of our grandchilds Birthday as well...she's the one born earling and weighed 1 lb 9 oz...a miracle for sure!!!
Blessings sweetie!!!
