Happy 4th of July!! BBQ & Fireworks and a very lazy 5th of July!

I hope everyone had a lovely Thursday!! A Happy 4th to all my friends and family and for all my international friends I hope you had a good day.

My husband and I hosted a big ole BBQ! We had about 20 friends over for a day of fun. Lots of laughs, drinks, lawn games, music and fun. I manned the grill and cooked a load of bratwursts and burgers, everyone brought a side dish to share and my hubby made us all lovely desserts!

3 types of cupcakes and an awesome twist to Americas favorite dessert, Apple pie! These were peanut butter filled peeled, apples wrapped in pie crust and baked.

We ended up the day with perfect seats under the fireworks. :)

All of this fun left me a very tired woman today. I really needed to get work done on Mel's dress but my brain was just too tired to make a complicated pattern work. Instead I worked on one last wedding project.... Need a tissue anyone? I have made tissue covers before and they are easy peasy. This time is used this tutorial from Two Brown Birds, super simple but gives it that little extra something.

I guess the rest of my weekend is going to super busy dress sewing!
