Well, I am pumped!! And not because of all the Olympics I’ve been watching every night!!
I designed and made a new table topper mini-quilt for my new metal stand to put out for September!!
OK, let me ‘splain…
I grew up in Florida where there is pretty much no naturally visible change of seasons. So, I always switched out my décor in the house seasonally… to remind us that it indeed is a new season!
Then, that habit was further ingrained in my brain because every month, as an elementary school teacher, all the bulletin boards in my room had to be changed out, too.
So, I change out my décor at home a bit more than seasonally…but not quite every month!!
But, I definitely take down all my summer décor (patriotic flags, Raggedies, watermelon, ants) a few days before I would go back to work for a new school year. It always helped me get my mind straight and ready to go back to work after summer break.
Now, I am retired!! This will be the first fall that I don’t go back to work/school!! But I still plan to change out my décor and put out my Back To School stuff! Maybe then it will really hit me, that I am retired!! Because I really don’t feel it yet!!
I’ve also collected LOTS of school themed fabric over the years, so will be making some new lap quilts to out out in September, too!! Better get busy, huh???
Yogi’s doing allot of spyin’ on those sneaky squirrels out on the deck, from his bed on my sewing table! Soooo, what are you working on this summer??
