See You In September ~ Blog hop sign up..

Hello Sweet Peeps...

Summer will be coming in just a few days... ( on this side of the ocean anyway)
and we want YOU all to enjoy this season...

WE will not be scheduling any blog hops over the summer...
HOWEVER IN SEPTEMBER, on the 3rd to be exact...until the 16th...
for 2 weeks, YOU will have the opportunity to highlight
3 things that you created over the summer...

It can be anything... Be CREATIVE, show us 
 your knitting, painting, QUILTING, stitchings, needlepoint, cross stitch, sewing....
1 of those projects will have to be 
RBD Gingham...only 1 project...the other projects
will be whatever you want...come back in September 
and inspire us...

If you do create anything over the summer and wish
to show it on your blog, just do sneak peaks ...
and save the details for us to shower you with
compliments in the fall..


She has been noted time and time again for her cheering ways....
She has cheered many around the world with her positive comments..
and she is certainly on board with our RBD SAVE GINGHAM campaign...
( the link is on the sidebar to the post) 

She seemed the perfect person to cheer us in the fall...

So she will need the following from you...

Your name, 
your email address
Your blog Name,
Your link to your blog.

Please send this information to her with the 


s.galagher at sympatico dot ca

Anyone and everyone can participate in our HOPS.
If ever you wanted to have cheerleaders in your life
to cheer on your creativity….
well you do not need to look any further…

1. CREATE 3 projects over the summer, one of them 
has to be RBD ( riley blake designs) gingham...
the rest, your choice...
NOW you will be showcasing 3 projects, not 1 or just 2 but 3...
any size at all...

2. BE a cheerleader for all those who participate, there is nothing 
as heartfelt as your lovely comments.

3. Please turn off your word verification the day of your
post…you really do not want to miss any comments..
YOU have no idea how that one comment can be a life changer….

4. Be sure to add your post at midnight EST. WE have visitors
all around the world who like to get up like we do in North America
to your lovely creations

5. Please ADD everyone including YOUR blog on your post 
that day, so we can find everyone as easily as we found you..

6. MOST IMPORTANT, commit, if you don't, you have
taken the spot of someone else who I will be hearing about,
trust me there…

7. Add the button to your blog so everyone will note your 
SEE you in SEPTEMBER projects will be revealed soon! 

The end!

I thought you might enjoy some nostalgia....

I'll be alone each and every night
While you're away, don't forget to write
Bye-bye, so long, farewell
Bye-bye, so long
See you in September
See you when the summer's through
Here we are (bye, baby, goodbye)
Saying goodbye at the station (bye, baby, goodbye)
Summer vacation (bye, baby bye, baby)
Is taking you away (bye, baby, goodbye)
Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September
Or lose you to a summer love
(counting the days 'til I'll be with you)
(counting the hours and the minutes, too)

Bye, baby, goodbye
Bye, baby, goodbye
Bye, baby, goodbye (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
Bye, baby, goodbye (bye-bye, so long)

Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September
Or lose you to a summer love
(I'll be alone each and every night)
(While you're away, don't forget to write)

See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
I'm hopin' I'll
See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
Well, maybe I'll
See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)

Bye Bye So long Farewellllll, see you in September...
