Celebrating the 4th of July

Lately I’ve been in a sewing mood so I decided to whip up a cute top to wear on the Fourth of July. It’s basically a fitted version of a pillowcase top. Besides this little sequin number I’ve raided my linen closet to design two brand new ways of making pillowcase blouses from embroidered pillowcases. Look for that tutorial in the next few days.

Today I’m bringing the sparkle with my red sequin blouse, silver sequin cuff bracelet and patriotic jewelry. I’m going downtown later to have dinner and watch the fireworks.

And speaking of fireworks, my little Koda is terrified of them so the last couple of weeks have been difficult for him. His new refuge is under the bed! I managed to snap a picture of him on one of his rare appearances out in the open. And here’s the photo…just because.

For his sake I’m looking forward to this holiday being over, which in my neighborhood is going to be around mid July.

So now I’m off to celebrate our nation’s independence. God bless America!
