I managed to get my table topper made with the patriotic fabrics that I won from Inchworm Fabrics. I used a pattern that I had seen on the internet and it said it was from Artthreads.
It went up quickly and I really enjoy the way it turned out. I would recommend using biased binding with all of the curves. I did and it worked beautifully. The red and blue decorative stitching is just one of the stitches on the sewing machine. Thanks to Cherry for all the wonderful advice about starching the fabric WELL before doing the applique. It sewed up beautifully. She is the queen of detailed applique work.
Sunday was a baby shower for our DIL and I always enjoy throwing a few burp cloths in with the baby gifts. They are constructed with flannel so are soft for the baby's face too. Can you tell that the sex of the baby is not known?

This weekend is a birthday for one of the granddaughters. She will be two years old so I made her a simple summer dress. I LOVE this DS fabric and I think it made up really cute as a dress and bloomers.
Today is another granddaughter birthday. We are invited for dinner tonight and I am bringing the cake so best get myself going and get it made.
Four of the girls will come home with us tonight for a sleepover and we will make bread and more strawberry jam tomorrow.
I know a few of my followers are in the fire area of Colorado and a few more in the flooding from Debbie. Please stay safe and know that we are all thinking about you and keeping you in our prayers.
