My plan was to finish the Stars quilt I had basted last weekend but wouldn’t you know it I got snagged by a squirrel project!!
Debby Brown released the September project “Gather Ye Rosebuds” early and I just couldn’t wait!! 😮
I immediately pulled out my pink scrap bin and started cutting 2.5″ squares then spent the next few days putting the ‘flower heads’ together
So where is my Stars top? Folded up on the end of my ironing board! I’ve taken PTO all next week so my *new* plan is to start quilting it on my Pfaff and continue working on the September Color blocks on my Singer… I knew a second machine would come in handy!! LOL
Of course I’ve been watching the US Open and there have been some very dramatic upsets over the last few days!! The young players are definitely making their mark 😉 My favorite on the ladies side, Barty, crashed out last night losing to American Shelby Rogers but my favorite on the men’s side, Djokovic, is still going strong. However, he will face American Jensen Brooksby on Monday and that could prove to be quite a battle!
On the retirement front, I still haven’t committed to a date yet but I am getting excited about it! I’ve been talking about it quite a bit with friends and family and I’m getting used to the idea of paying the full price tag for medical benefits (I still don’t like it tho!). I think I’m leaning towards June 30, 2022. That will let me celebrate 43 years with my company on June 4…putting a nice bow on the ending!
Let’s not even talk about WW…. uuuggghhh, I’ve gained back a couple of pounds I lost over the last few months. I really need to get my head together and stop putting junk in my mouth! I know I shouldn’t even buy the crap but I fool myself into thinking ‘oh I won’t eat all of this, it will just be here for a little treat now & then’…. Hahahahahahaha!! I really should know better!
That’s all for now… have a great rest of your weekend and enjoy the Labor Day holiday 😀
