Americana Who???



Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment. ― Will Rogers


You all have heard me talk often about how my Sister "Makes" me do stuff.....but here's yet another.....well, actually two more things.....but I digress..........

 Well first of all she talked me into entering the Nancy Drew Blog Hop.....and I'm all done with what I made but I can't show ya'll til March 6.........

But next......I kept talking about making a tablecloth out of the little neighborhood House Squares I showed you on my last post that I won on Beth Shibley's Neighborhood Block Party......

My Sis reminded me that I still hadn't finished my Americana Tablecloth that was in my UFO pile.......(she quickly followed that remark with a reflection of how many things she still had in her UFO pile).............well anyway.....I don't know why but I pulled the Americana Tablecloth out and actually finished it!

  
 Tada!



So now my table will be ready for all the patriotic holidays this year!

Ah....I got some nice mail this week from one of my swap partners, Sunny...............look at this adorable Valentine Mug Rug.............such pretty pinks and love the eyelet ribbon.......


 
Sunny also included some Biscotti (which didn't last long) and some pretty heart buttons and a lovely handmade card.....Sunny and I had talked about how we remember making homemade cards ("Balentimes") when we were growing up and exchanging with all our little school friends..... Thanks, Sunny I love it all and, Yes, I will be your Balentime...

Ok.....one more thing before I go.........a sneak peek of my Nancy Drew Project and then I will say Ta-Ta for now................


 BTW....if you are interested in signing up for the Nancy Drew Blog Hop just click on either of the photos above......I believe there are still openings!  Ok then....see you next time........

OMG! Americana is beautiful and Yes, I'll take the credit for getting you to finally finish it. It looks like it was hard to do with all those angles and corners etc. No wonder you were taking your time. Love it!

I love your tablecloth! Do you remember what pattern you used? I like how the 2 "squares" make it perfect for a round table. That's a great idea!

Very sweet mug rug. My maiden name is Valentine so anything with a heart makes me smile :-).
