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!
