Dotty 365 August

Hello! Happy September! Aren't you sooo glad you don't have to go back to school! I know I am.
Here are my Dotty 365 Circles for August.

August 31 is Dotty number 300!

Plus the first two Dots for September...

This month is a mix of memories---beach days with toddlers, sandcastles, gaudy plastic beach toys, Hawaiian shirts and flowered boardshorts, learning to surf, hunting for shells and seaglass...

Endless summer and enjoying every day! Our favorite picnic was peanut butter and fresh tomato sandwiches, on whole wheat with mayo. Still love it. Lemonade, carrot sticks. Crappy cheese and peanut butter cracker packets, to dole out to hungry little ones. Goldfish crackers too....

And some of the Dots are scraps of current projects, mostly P2 this time. See the watermelon rinds?

My momentous walk finally with Mo....

Some other special memories, just for me.

My little journal.

All my accumulated squares in the box.

Summer is ending, bittersweet, feeling like time has been squandered , out of my control.

Moving on...65-ish Dotties left to sew! Click HERE to see evryone's Dots on Quilty Folk.
