Show & Tell Friday - Link Up!!

How was your Fourth of July? I hope you had a wonderful day with family and friends. We had a quiet day here, which was nice. My youngest son cooked BBQ beans and pasta salad for us and then I had marinated some steaks that were in the fridge and I cooked those to go with them. Normally, we would have cooked them outside on our charcoal grill, but there is a fire ban right now and so I cooked them in my iron skillets on the stove and they were delicious! 

My oldest son had to work and he was on the school roof near where they shoot the fireworks off for our town. He was there to make sure no sparks ignited on the roof and to put them out if it happened. He said that it was a great spot to watch the fireworks and he really enjoyed them. We are able to watch the fireworks from our porch so that's what my hubby, youngest son and I did. They were really nice, as always. We are very blessed that we don't have to travel out in the traffic to watch and can even be in our pj's to see them if we want! lol

Now on to my Show & Tell. I have been working on this lovely little project that my husband bought me.

This is going to be a little scissor holder. I'll be honest. This has been one of the most difficult patterns I've ever encountered. Not because it's that difficult, but because the instructions themselves are written quite poorly and are quite hard to follow. I've spent hours figuring this out and, once I am done, will be relieved. In most likely hood, I will never buy another pattern from this company again. However, I do love the way it's coming out and I will enjoy using it. 

I've also been crocheting two different projects. One a prayer shawl and some granny squares for a blanket that I plan on using on my bed. It's fun doing all these projects, however, I find that I don't finish any one thing very quickly because I'm going from one project to the next. It's just how I am. 

My other thing to share are these

My hubby got me these at Target. Aren't they wonderful? I love jars to keep things in for my crafting or in the kitchen. These are so pretty! I've heard that they are selling them at WalMart individually, but I loved getting the six all packaged up. I will definitely use that many and am hoping they will have them when I want to get one more package. The blue color is just so pretty!
Please share something you're working on! Are you stitching, crocheting, doing a decorating project or anything else? I'd love to have you link up with this post!
Blessings - Julie
