~Happy 4th of July 2013~

Happy 4th of July, friends. Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday. We have rain here in Alabama. No special plans, just relaxing. Every year for many years now, our town has a celebration on the Tennessee River. The festivities include a professional fireworks show from a river barge, live music, and plenty of vendors with good food and crafts. Our house is so close, that we can see the fireworks and hear the music. Some of our neighbors even make a bit of money by allowing people to park in their yards for a small fee and walk down to the festival. It is always crowded every year. Do you all have special plans for this 4th of July?
This is the patriotic pillowcase dress I made for my lovely grand daughter Macey, a while ago (before breaking my arm). 'Didn't get a good photo of the matching hair bow, but it is made of the red with white dots fabric in a yo-yo shape. Macey will really look Americana in this dress, won't she? Get the free tutorial at: The Mother Huddle.
This pattern is really easy to construct, with no fasteners or lining, so its rating is:

On another note, went to the Dr, on Tuesday, and my broken arm is doing fine. He said that no surgery is required...yeah! 'May get rid of the cast on 23rd July. It sure is hot in this summer weather, lol!


  1. Oh, Danice! This super cute, she is going to look just adorable! I can just see the hair bows and cute sandals, too. What a creative use of a pillowcase! Thanks so much for sharing.
    Happy 4th of July!
