Memorial Day Ideas on TFT

Memorial Day Ideas on TFT

Thursday Favorite Things. Share NOW. #linkyparty. #TFT #thursdaayfavoritethings #eclecticredbarn

Happy Thursday dear friends. I want to thank all of you for the kind words about my cancer. You have all been so thoughtful and I appreciate it so much. I had my first treatment and it went well. I know that it gets worse but for now I am doing good. 

We were able to take 5 days vacation. We went to Orlando to a resort and spa. It was close to home. My BIL and SIL went with us and we had so much fun. My SIL and I spent 2 sessions at the spa and we had some wonderful dinners out. 

Thank you again for all of your heartfelt wishes. I know that some of you are cancer survivors and you give me inspiration. I will keep you posted. 

Have a great Memorial Weekend!

Many of my features come from your comments. Don't forget to leave our Linkup Number or Post Title so I can find you and you might become one of my features for next week.

Memorial Day Centerpiece

Memorial Day Centerpiece

Can you believe that Memorial Day is this weekend? Crazy how time flies. I wanted to make some holiday items so I looked on Pinterest and Etsy. I saw several things that I liked so I began to make some patterns. 

After some cutting, re-cutting and starting over, I was able to make all of these items on my Memorial Day table.

I had the wooden tray and I got the runner when I was in Pittsburgh the last time.  The mason jar is one of my grandmothers.

The flags were easy to make. You just have to remember to put the stars on the opposite side if you want the flags to face each other. Learned that the hard way. I used wooden skewers and hot glue to hold the flag on. These flags were about 4 1/2 long and 3 inches wide.

These stars really caught my eye. After many attempts I was able to make a pattern that worked. Stuffing them was a different story. It took a couple of tries to see what worked best, but I persevered. I added a twine bow and small bell to the front. 

In the red enamel cup is a flag pillow. I have made several of these and more stars. I think I am getting carried away.

These stars were the easiest once I was able to get the pattern right. I love using ticking fabric when I can. I rusted some bells and safety pins and used them on these ones. I actually found this enamel tray and was almost ready to get rid of it. Thank goodness I didn't.

I had so much fabric to work with and even the stuffing. I did have to buy some star material, but that was inexpensive. 

I am so thrilled with all of these. I can keep them up for all of the summer holidays.
