Patriotic Pink Saturday!

Welcome on this wonderful day! Welcome to another Pink Saturday with a red twist...after all it is July 4th! Be sure to visit Beverly @ http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/
Rather than keep all my vintage tablecloths which I adore folded away in my linen closet, I have decided to use them!

I love the old tablecloths with roses on them...I have them in reds and pinks.

I just cut them into squares making sure the roses take center stage and sew them. Then I just stuff them with inexpensive polyester stuffing from Walmart or the fabric store. I have made several pillows so far.

I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America,
and to the Republic for which it stands...
one Nation under God...indivisible..
with liberty and justice for All.

"And all nations shall call you Blessed..."
Malachi 3:12
Just a few red, white and blue pictures for fun!

Hope your July 4th is AMAZING!
