It's Almost September!!!

Good morning & welcome to my new followers!  I thank all you newbies for coming by for a visit & deciding to stick around!  I also extend my heartfelt thanks to my established followers who continue to put up with me   : )   So glad to have you all here!

I am really excited about it almost being September!  Every day I look outside & I see more colors on the trees.  Not a lot of color, mind you, but it's definitely there.  It makes me want to do a September Dance!  I decided to have a look around the internet to see if there actually is a September Dance & I found this little ditty by Earth, Wind & Fire.  I have heard this song many times but never knew what the name of it was or that it mentioned anything about dancing in September.  Once again modern technology adds to my font of knowledge  : )

I initially assumed that anything relating to a September Dance was nonexistent & decided that I would share this other dance-related tune with you ... Safety Dance by Men Without Hats.  I think I have what would be termed an eclectic taste in music.  Andrea Bocelli to Janis Joplin ... Bert Kaempfert to the Bee Gees ...  the Soggy Bottom Boys to Perry Como.  Safety Dance is one of my all-time favorite songs.  I love the beat & I love the quirky video   : )
Last week I did something that I haven't done in a while.  I bought some stitching stash   : ) I am participating in an exchange & needed to buy an appropriate chart to stitch for my assigned person.  I found something on 123 Stitch that I hope she will like & while there I decided to treat myself to a couple things I have been wanting ... Bluebird Sampler by Threadwork Primitives, this year's PS Santa, & LHN's Hot Cocoa & Ding Dong Merrily on High.  I'm really looking forward to stitching all of these!  I hope to stitch at least one of them before Christmas but that remains to be seen since I am still working on my "4s."  I did, of course, also receive the chart I will be stitching for my assigned person in the exchange but I can't show you that right now   : )
Have a happy Sunday everyone!  I intend to do a little dance, make a little lunch, & get down tonight   : )

Well bright and happy good morning to you as well! Sounds like you're in an especially chipper mood! I have funky (ok, "eclectic") taste in music too - one never knows what will be in the player when they stop by - but have to say, "Safety Dance" was a new title to me. Hmmmmm. ;o Great new patterns Shirlee. Arghh...if I could only tackle some in my already overflowing stash I'd be good. Happy Sunday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I love "The safety dance" and it takes me back when I was 13 years old. It makes me want to jump every time I am listen to it! It is a funny song. We are living in the mountains and fall is already here, too. Love Sabine (Germany)

I'm not dancing. Safety or reckless. Slow or fast. I'm not even swinging my crossed leg. I'll just watch YOU dance. Nice stash though!

Loved the videos, Shirlee--I'm sitting here in my chair bopping to the beat :) September can't come soon enough for me--after the heat of this summer, I am more than ready for fall!

Love your new stash--enjoy!!
