It's almost July.
Time to think about the 4th of July.
I was wondering what I had in the house that was red, white and blue.
First, a short story.
Do you wonder why you keep
I was going through a box I'd brought in from the garage.
(Yes, I'm still shredding and throwing and it's probably why my back is complaining.)
I found a bunch of old calendars.
Some of them were cat calendars and since I love kitties, I knew why I'd kept them.
I'll do something with them one day ... I hope.
Then I found a 1994 (really!!!) Annie's Victorian Village Calendar.
Looking through the calendar of lovely photos,
I found at the very back Place Mat Patterns and Tea Room Restaurant Recipes.
Now it starts making sense!
I stopped when I saw this photo.

I'd found red, white and blue place mats -- perfect for the 4th of July.

Here's my crochet place mat made from the newly found pattern
and the red, white and blue kitchen towels I already had.
The kitchen is going to look good for the month of July!
The crochet pattern for the place mat was very easy.
The original called for worsted yarn and I used Lily Sugar 'N Cream cotton yarn
It's beginning to look a lot like July!
And feels like it ... high today projected to be 101 with feels like temp around 110.
Iced tea anyone?
Time for me to hibernate!
Wishing YOU well and much joy!
