Patriotic Project

Summer is in full swing and I've been busy with a lot of activities with the kids. I did however manage to whip out a quick project this past weekend just in time for the 4th of July.

I've had this flag fabric in my stash for years and all the cool banners I've been seeing recently inspired me. Two packages of bias tape later and I had a fabulous patriotic banner.

I had planned on putting it on the front porch but since it's not really outdoor fabric I worried about fading from the sun and rain, so I decided to spruce up the gazebo on our back deck instead. Add some alcohol and some food on the grill and we're set for a party!

In other good news, the container gardening is looking up. My teeny tiny squash seedlings have blossomed! I think they just wanted to live up to the fabulousness of their marker.

Have a Happy 4th of July everyone!
