How I Celebrated July 4th

Good morning sweet friends!
While many of you were having fun 
celebrating our Nation's 242nd birthday,
I was spending a quiet day at home with my mom.
Bob was working at the store,
so I did some laundry, started the ribs in the slow cooker,
made potato salad and devilled eggs for later.
Also made a cherry cheesecake for dessert.
Just before Bob came home,
I put the ribs on the grill and some chicken
for my mom...she does not like any pork products.
Not even bacon...can you believe that?
We enjoyed our July 4th dinner at home
with my dear FIL, mom and Bob!

So while I was waiting for Bob's arrival,
I decided to create one July 4th item.
Something I had wanted to do for awhile now.

Using some linen, 
blue tick fabric and this red stripe fabric.

While drinking iced tea and watching
Hallmark movies.
{mom loves this channel}
She does not get it at her house.

Did you notice my star tea strainer.
I have had this for many years now.

Since I work full time,
I don't often get the chance to sit and sew often...
and sit and sew I did that day.

This was a Pinterest inspired idea.
Just a simple flag pillow.

Just a little bit of July 4th decor.
Finished on our nation's birthday.

I will keep this pillow out for awhile.

How did you celebrate our Nation's birthday?
Post July 4th Blessings To All!
