Then last night we saw Eclipse!! Of all the movies so far, I thought the first Twilight movie was o.k... I liked it, but maybe it was just a little slower-moving for my liking...
But now I can't decide if I liked the second movie or the third movie better!!! They were both great!!! I'm going to leave it at that, as I don't want to spoil it for anybody who is still planning to see it! All I'm going to say is that if I could go see it again tonight, I would!!.. tonight, and the next night, and the next night...!! I loved it!
In the meantime, as you can see, I have plans for serving dinner myself; but I have not yet determined when I can serve it, because of various schedules, commitments, and even the weather!
My apartment gets a little uncomfortable on the hottest of days, as I have no air conditioner this year... just fans! Our forecasters are warning we'll be riding a real heatwave for the next FIVE days; so, it wouldn't surprise me if we had to pack this all up, and throw it in bags and coolers, just to hopefully appreciate such a meal in a more comfortable picnic spot!
Anyways, I wanted to at least show the crochet elements of my holiday table. I've been busy with various things during the past couple of weeks, but I still managed to get a little crocheting in. The placemats you see, I made some time ago!
Most recently I made the Patriotic Round Potholder, at the center of the table, which I originally found HERE. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find it there now.. However, I can share where I found the pattern for the hot pad in front of it!..
You can find it HERE, at Crochet Soiree! Then, the pattern for the star coasters can be found HERE!
I picked up this cute little bear last year some time, at a garage sale! The shiny red metallic candlesticks were a gift from Dear Daughter, when she was young, that I use not only for the 4th, but for Christmas and Valentines Day too!
Finally, the plates are just a fun little somethin' I picked up from my local Dollar General! Plastic, but perfect for my purposes!
Well, wherever you are, and whatever you're doing, I hope you're enjoying this 4th of July holiday weekend, having fun, keeping safe, and keeping cool!
Happy Independence Day!
