4th of July weekend

Settling in for the holiday weekend. Lots of project lined up both in the quilting room and in the kitchen.
Found this cute Uncle Sam at graphicsfairy.blogspot.com She posts lots of free graphics each week. Great for quick projects or just some silliness...I used Uncle Same for some Cupcake Picks...he worked well with the flags.

A few days ago I posted a photo of my guilds next donation quilt. I forgot to post that the quilt is from this book.
Not only does this book has some great patriotic projects in it but it is also full of interesting stories about women who served in a wide variety of jobs during WWII. My Mom served over in Europe during WWII with the Red Cross and I think it is important we remember all the folks who support the airman, sailors, marines, and soldiers.

Lots of (inside) projects lined up here as well... about the only thing I'll be doing outside will be hauling the sprinkler around the yard. This time of year I love me some a/c and ceiling fans!

Have a great weekend!

Is the guild making the quilt larger than in the book? If so, I'm guessing they made the medallion larger? I've had that one bookmarked ever since I got the book (when it first came out! YIKES!).
