{ Friday Foto Friends #134 }

Hey, Friends!

HOPE everybody has had a great week.
It's been "hotter than blue blazes" in our neck of the woods and the humidity is almost unbearable. 
Didn't I just complain about the cold a few months ago? 

It's been another slow week for fotos for me so I thought I'd just share a craft that I did from something I saw on Pinterest. I only bought 3 rolls of ribbon and rick-rack, everything else I had on hand. Pappy cut a dowel he had down to 18 inches and I hot glued the ribbons across the top and let them hang down. The most difficult part which wasn't hard just time-consuming was gluing the buttons on the flag to make the "stars". I was so glad that I had 50 buttons exactly alike that was in a tin of buttons that was given to me from my mother-in-law's things. Another thing that made my heart happy is I was finally able to use the ribbon with cardinals!  I got it at an after Christmas clearance at Big Lots many years ago. I didn't have a "pattern", just went by the fotos I saw on Pinterest and kinda "winged it" and came up with my own.  Our daughter made one, too, and hers is absolutely nothing like this one. I love that we can both be crafty, but true to our own style!

So, what about you?
Have you been doing any crafting lately?
I'm working on something else that I'll share later.....
as soon as I can wrap my head around how to attach the legs!

HOPE your weekend is awesome.
Stay cool!

  1. Wonderful flag! I love how you made that. I've never seen anything like it. :)
    Happy Friday and have a lovely weekend.

  2. Your flag looks terrific! I haven't been working on any crafts lately. I've just been reading a lot and trying to get a lot of little things done. I'm afraid I haven't posted anything new this week. Maybe next week. After having a very late but hot start to Spring it has cooled down a lot. It is alternatively sunny then rainy. I like it. Have a great weekend. I
