A Happy Goodbye to August this Week!

It seems like every month we live through this Pandemic… I am happy to see a month enter and then happier to wish it goodbye… August is definitely not different…

So as you enjoy the last days of August and get ready to welcome in September, Labor Day and Autumn… what are you most looking forward to??ย  I hope you will leave your thoughts on this in a comment at the end of this post ๐Ÿ‘‡

September will herald in the use of WordPress for future blogging… you can find me already starting to get my WordPress account set up at…

However I am NOT very tech savvy and it is taking a bit of time and thought as it can be way more custom that the blogger format is.

But the detriment of the Blogger system just is taking the fun out of blogging for me… and I wanna enjoy this thing I do each Sunday morning!ย  Just like this Bonnie-ism…

So today (Saturday) I am pre-writing my blog post to deal with posting in Blogger one last time for y’all and for me!

I have worked some Every Day on making myself happy quilting this wall hanging…

And I put on fresh Color Street nail strips yesterday too!

And I made the final frame move on the heart part of the wall hanging I have been steadily working on…

I have 7 triangles to finish quilting around on this heart.

Linking this progress to Kathy’s Quilts Slow Stitching Sunday group link up HERE <<< Go see what all the fun is about there… including hand stretching ๐Ÿ˜€
Now look at this cute quilt… have you seen this pattern in your travels???ย  I came across it in one of my quilty groups but haven’t found the pattern.ย  I thought in bolder colors my daughter and HER fiance might enjoy a wall hanging like this… when they find a home of their own ๐Ÿ™‚

Then I saw these awesome curtains someone made… ooooh makes me want some quilted curtains now!!!ย  How about you??!!

And I have a great group of different colored plaids in all different sizes…

Would this group look better to you in this kind of queen sized quilt setting…

Or would you be more inclined to add solid centers and do something like this in a queen finish???

I am pondering the two with the plaids I was gifted by a dear friend of mine.. I wanna make it a quilt for our bed from these fabrics ..or do you know a pattern that would lend itself to this grouping of plaids???

Here are a couple funnies I saw this week that gave me a chuckle… First this one I can TOTALLY relate to…

And as a pediatric nurse … I can totally see a K or 1st grader coming out of school from a long day with a different mask than you sent them in with…

In November I am planning a Color Street Party on Facebook.ย  Here are the NEW additions for Autumn…
If we aren’t Facebook friends consider finding me HERE on Facebook and send me a friend request or simply a private message as I have a private page… to let me know you are interested in some fun colors on your nails too!ย  I would love for you to be able to meet my vivacious Color Street Stylist & join in the FUN! of a Virtual Party ๐Ÿ’…and then when you are doing fun hand work you can enjoy pretty color bold or quiet color on your nails ๐Ÿ’•
In closing… take time to think what an amazing chance YOU have every day to remake decisions you aren’t happy with…

This C. S. Lewis quote speaks volumes to me in the period of time we are in TODAY!ย  Can’t we change the ending we are currently in starting NOW??!!

Thanks for stopping in ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I certainly appreciate you giving me a bit or your time… Happy Sunday!

    Personally, I prefer the first of the two queen-sized quilts. I find it more restful. Thanks for the new link to your blog. I added it to my blog list. I will be trying my Glamsterdam polish tomorrow! Love the memes.

    the thing I like the most of fall is the cooler weather! I so look forward to fall and then by January all I want is spring – so glad we have a short winter and not really bad. I really thing the months have been going by fast this year and heaven knows why because I am mostly home. I like the second quilt picture you show in the plaids and yes I can see kids trading masks, taking them off and deliberately breathing on each other. It is the nature of kids

    Your almost finished with the wall hanging, they'll love it. The heart one is cute too, bet they'd be pleased with that one if you can track down the pattern. I'm always sad to see summer leave, I love the hot weather, fresh juicy tomatoes, walking barefoot in the grass and the crisp smell of freshly clothesline dried towels and sheets. Hope WordPress works out for you! Happy stitching!

    How funny that you should ask about that heart pattern today–I had an email from Quilt in a Day with their daily sales, and I think they have the same pattern on sale today (or something very similar.) It is called Exploding Heart by Slice of Pi Quilts, available for $7 at QIAD today.

    I added your new blog to my Reader. I have considered moving too, but I had moved back to Legacy Blogger before the cutoff time, so I will stay where I am right now I think. I got my fall stuff down yesterday and out. I love seeing my fall quilts hanging on the wall! Have a great week!

    September is one of my favorite months. The weather is still warm, nights are cooler, less humidity and blue skies. Sunflowers seem to be popular this week. Sorry you had trouble with new blogger. Plaid quilts are always interesting and you have some nice ones to work with. Have not seen the heart block on my online travels. I understand why you'd like to make one for your daughter. Very good C.S. Lewis quote. Wish you the best on Word Press and look forward to seeing you on that blogging platform.

    I havenโ€™t blogged all year so I canโ€™t relate to the blogger problems. But I am seeing quite a few people expressing their frustrations about it. Iโ€™d probably never figure it out! Iโ€™m ready for fall… last year I was sad to see summer leave. This has been a fast year, especially considering all the time spent at home. You would think the year had passed slowly, but not so for me. I want to stock my pantry and hibernate and sew!

    This year is flying by….it will be Christmas soon. I wonder what this Christmas will be like in this world. September for me means happy, fragrant-filled spring!! So happy about that. Your pretty quilt is becoming prettier every time I visit you. C.S. Lewis was a brilliant man…..love so many of his quotes.
