Quilts in Progress make the BEST Backdrops Y’all!

Happy Sunday from North Carolina Y’all!

Last Sunday I got this cute triptych of photos from my daughter in law… that my son James had taken!

Didn’t he do a great job of catching her first bit of watermelon for the day!!!!
Ellie is growing big and strong isn’t she??!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
Mike, my middle child, is doing great working from home at the moment and he has picked up a side hustle … reading books for Audible!!!!

I am not recommending this book with this big picture… I just wanted you to see his name at the bottom of the screen on my phone though… His voice sounds excellent reading these authors’ words!
I took off the lavender iridescent nail polish this week… using the clips and polish remover that is good but works without acetone to dry out my nail beds…

I get that at Amazon… with all my Mineral Fusion nail products ๐Ÿ™‚

And here is my new mani on the right hand!ย  Took me less than an hour to remove the old polish … clean my nails well, and put fresh strips on them all ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I ๐Ÿ’– this product!ย  So mess free!!!!

And sharing all these quilted squares in a photo for my Facebook cover…

Then last night was the end of Shark Week in Holli Jo’s nail group (AND today on TV it wraps up)… so her and her husband had shark hats on for their whole LIVE event on facebook!ย  They are so loving & funny & endearing too ๐Ÿ™‚
If you wanna join a fun and uplifting group let me know… I am happy to invite you ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย 
Each week starts on Monday and finishes with a big party on Saturday nights!!!ย  I won a very nice foot massager in a live event just like this.. it has jets and heat and is awesome!!!!ย  AND I have won free nail sets too!ย  She hosts Bingo, Show & Sell, and Random Grand Prize Drawing names from the week of game playing in the group too for the big winner!

Or if you just wanna try this dry nail strip product by Colorstreet
Let me know and I will get her to snail mail you some … and you won’t be disappointed!
I want to share how my new tattoo has healed as well!!!

At 3 weeks old all the scabbing and flaking is done… mine was small and detailed.. Ricks ying yang was bigger and finished healing before mine… however we are BOTH happy with our new tattoos ๐Ÿ™‚
Linking this quilty backdropped post to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching HERE <<<
I am ALMOST halfway through the heart of this quilted wall hanging now… Here is hoping next Sunday I have more of the heart center to share with you all โค

    Aah….summer and watermelon, such a perfect combination. Your Ellie is the sweetest little girl; fabulous photos of her. The pretty squares you are quilting with all your perfect stitches are just lovely.

    Cool ! that your son reads audiobooks. Love the watermelon pics. I had noticed your tattoo in a previous post, but didnโ€™t realize it was new. It suits you!! I hope you took photos of you guys getting them, with your masks on. A year to remember, for sure!! ๐Ÿคฃ

    Where did you get those nail clips and cotton for removing the polish? I am sincerely considering trying Color Street. I love how it looks on your nails. Your granddaughter is adorable. Love those pics! Your son must have a beautiful speaking voice.

    It's wonderful your family sends such cute photos of Ellie especially eating her first watermelon. Your son must have what is called a 'broadcast voice.' Who knows maybe more doors will open for him. Good idea to use the acetone-free remover. Your paws are real pretty for a hand stitching photo shoot!

    Such sweet watermelon eating photos!Congrats to son on his new Audible gig… that's impressive!Enjoy your hand quilting on this awesome secret project!Thanks for taking the time to link up with the Slow Sunday Stitchers!

    Gorgeous little one with the watermelon!And another thing that looks gorgeous is your nails against those quilted blocks. I'm going to let my younger daughter know about these nail products as she is the hand model worthy one in our family. I'm very impressed with your son's job as narrator. The voice on audibles is very important, I find, to the enjoyment of the story.
