Happy Independence Day!

For all of us in the U.S., it will be a nice, long holiday weekend. And in my neck of the woods (wonder where that phrase originated? Lol), the weather is beautiful.  Twenty degrees below normal!  Yesterday the high temp was 66 degrees.  I know a lot of people like the hot weather and think that is too chilly for July, but I like it.  It was down to 55 degrees last night - great sleeping weather!

I wanted to share some of my patriotic pieces that we have worked on recently...
 And here is something new that we tried.  My friend, Kim (from KimmyKats blog) makes amazing jewelry, and she came to give me a lesson one day!  The one on the left looks like it's hanging crooked, but it's really not.  I just put these on my website - so go there if you are interested in purchasing either of these.
That's all for now...have a fun holiday weekend!  We will have having some visitors and a birthday party - more on that later.

Have a great day!


  1. love your shooting stars for the flags. the beads are a wonderful addition!!

  2. I am so in love with that patriotic log cabin. I am going to have to save my pennies for that one! Looks like it isn't framed. Is it a pendant?

  3. Hi Julie,
    Love your little quilts. Sweet idea for a charm. I signed up to see more.
    You are from Iowa! I'm originally from WI, but we spent a lot of time traveling around IA while my husband was selling advertisement space in the Yellow Pages. It was fun. We were in the Carol area.
    Happy Birthday to your loved one. Have fun at the party.

  4. Love these! The new addition of beads...makes them extra special! Happy 4th.
