day 3 of See you in September

What wowed us yesterday.....this lovely gingham quilt 
that will have you spinning with possibilities...

See you in September reminds me so much of my teens...
I loved school and September meant new beginnings...

That is what we will be celebrating for the next two weeks..
NEW BEGINNINGS with all of YOU....

Shari has been an exceptional cheerleader through the summer..
always cheering everyone on, I have seen many notes
she left to all of you ....such an inspiration she has been
and a pretty great campaigner for our GINGHAM with RBD...
The medium collection has been saved...YEAHHHHHHH! 

Check the side bar for the list she has put together of some
very talented ladies... ( or link here for the schedule) 

Here are those we will be cheering for today.....all of them will be showcasing 3 projects
they worked on over the summer... One of their projects had to be something with 
GINGHAM....so for all you GINGHAM lovers ( me included) I just know
they will be inspiring so many of us...

WE have such talented, inspiring over the top WOW ladies...
I adore them all and filled with GRATITUDE they are in our 

They all get so excited when they see a NOTE from you..
so be sure to share your delight with them....YOU HAVE no idea
how that sweet note can make such a difference...
They are WORDS OF "WE CARE"....

Many surprises today ....everyone's summer was filled
with treasures...here are a couple that stood out...

For WOW......

A lot of work went into this lovely quilt...filled with vintage blocks of embroidery..
the fabric reminded me of quilts I used to have on my bed in this French B & B I used
to stay at....the borders are just a perfect combo...


And look her dishes match this very colourful gingham breakfast runner...
the chicks give it away....don't you just love all that gingham delight....

YOU matter! 

gingham...my next best thing...well besides coffee Too.!
