"Red,White and Blue makes a Happy Monday."

Hello,

Happy Monday. There have been quite a few Red White and Blue themed happenings in blog world this month. I dove in and made something too. I couldn't resist this cute cupcake design from Anna Bove Embroidery.




It looks good enough to eat doesn't it.

This is what I made it into.


A little table mat/mug mat, whatever you want to call it. I made a matching card too.  Some ric-rac and ladybird backing and binding completes the project. Using designs I have saved on the computer make me happy. This way a little project gets completed.

Saturday saw us attending the "Christmas in July" markets and the Old Railway Station in town. I was so happy to get a look at some amazingly cute animals. I never thought I would love to own a pig until I saw the most cutest one ever!!! It was half the size of our cat. Not for sale unfortunately. The lady also had all wrapped up a blanket under a heat lamp a Albino  Pygmy Hedgehog. It was the cutest ball of spikes I have ever seen. It has to be kept warm or else it goes into hibernation.

Hope you get to be extra happy today.
Happy Monday.

Would a pig eat your beautiful flowers if you had it roaming around there???

The RWB cupcakes look great. A lovely way to warm up a cold day.

I love red white and blue, probably because they are the USA colors and make me think of summer. I adore the mini quilt you made! Such a great way to use that embroidery.

What a sweet little cupcake! Ladybugs and cupcakes are two of my favorite things, so I think this is perfect :-)

Have a lovely day.
