Seems I found Bloglandia again....................

Well, I  found the road back I think. For a while it seems I was lost as I found myself in my last post.
But, today step by step ..little by little...I'll get there.
I just have to stroll down the path...uh....with a cane it seems......I've broken some toes, 3, don't ask. Suffice to say I am glad September is around the corner and June- August is past..sigh. I just have to budget my time better and just roll with whatever...well maybe not roll seems at my age now I will hurt know what I mean. Anyhoo..

I have been tweeking some things in between that 4 letter word L-I-F-E happening 
Be sure to visit the Television and Radio icons on my sidebar I have 2 new shows on.
The TV is set to the Lucy Show and Bob Hope's radio show is from an AFB in Texas.
Be sure to stop by and tune in.
As always I help my Blogpals over at the Etsy Cottage Style Blog with weekly blog parties. Come on over and check them out. They are open to everyone. there are 4 different ones each Monday of a month. 
This week is....................

......and I have been trying to update my Brown Gingham Creations website (still under construction) and wanting to start a new selling blog for my vintage apron line (online now, but awaiting the first post)

My slogan is 

"Where it's one nation stitched together by apron strings!

 Come on! Show off your Apronature(C)!

I hope you'll come by and Follow Me there too. I'll have posts about vintage aprons fabrics, sewing ideas from vintage magazines, vintage embroidery transfers you'll be able to copy and use, etc,and of course I will have items for sale too. But, I love custom orders. I can create a vintage inspired apron in any theme or color. You can also contact me with questions and requests.
It seems that on Etsy I just get lost and there is also another vendors who has a name verrrrry similar to mine and there seems nothing I can do...another I figured I might try a bit more marketing directly myself...I have found that some of you didn't realize stitchery is what I bad. 

guess it's time I speak up in Bloglandia Huh?

I also want to announce I will have a new weekly blog party right here on my BGC blog........Rednesday Wednesday..........................
As some of you know Sue, at It's a Very Cherry World has 'retired' her weekly party with a request for someone to take up the red letter day.. She and the party have been missed, so I have volunteered to host.
LOL, I know..I I haven't been able to put finger to keyboard intelligibly for weeks, but I said in the first paragraph (sorry long post, but give me a break, it's been a while) I was gonna follow the brightly lit  path thru Bloglandia and it led me here.  Beginning the first Wednesday in September ..cross my fingers cross my toes, dang forget the toes......will debut right here. What is Rednesday Wednesday you ask, well it's a very special day to celebrate all things           and hopefully very vintage, but new is okay too. Now Sue loved everything Cherry, of course, but I always joked 'cherries were fine, but strawberries are best' She always tucked in some little cherry thingy in some of her posts and I will continue the sweet tradition with
strawberries,. I'll send out an e-mail soon with more info so keep an eye on your inbox.

And, finally.... holy cow for someone who hasn't been able to post I am going on............I would like to give a big hug to all who have been checking up on me throughout the Summer. You don't know how much your kindnesses helped. Ok, I am done. I'm tyin on my apron and heading to the Apronation to 'pen' it's first post coming soon. 8)

Oh awesome, good to have you back sweetie. I hope you're healing well, and just only have 7 toes to take care of.......wink, wink. I'll be checking in periodically as my mom is keeping me pretty busy with appointments, but I'm always thinking of all my dear blog friends who are MIA for periods of time.

Hi Melody, I am happy to see a post from you. I cried for you previously and know the feeling that you were going through. I have been busy and it is so hot in our area. Most of the summer spoiled us and now we are paying for it. Many Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Hi, Melody! I don't know if we have ever officially "met" but I'm Holly.
I used to participate in Rednesday quite regularly but then blogger made some changes and I was frustrated with linking and such. Anyway, i'm over that now and I look forward to seeing Rednesday up and running again! ♥

Exciting new project! It's always nice to start something new. Especially after the summer you've had. Keep us posted!

That is why it is so important to enjoy each ay as you never know what kind of shape you will be in tomorrow. Sorry about your issues, and trust you will be well soon. Aprons are getting popular again.

Hi Melody!
I have peeked in a few times on you, sorry I didn't comment, life has had it's ups and downs here.
I smiled when I saw that you are taking on Rednesday. YIPPIE! I will try to participate when I am able - I don't have a lot of red things but I'll put my thinking cap on.
I'm so sorry to hear about your parents loss of their beloved doggie pie and your kitty's illness. Sending you lots of hugs.
Take care!

Yay! I'm so glad I found you! I was wondering when Rednesday would begin again, and had been checking in on Cottage Sweet Cottage to find out! Thanks for taking it on!
Good luck with your Apronation site! I love your slogan!
Following you now!

Apronations is a wonderful slogan. I just love vintage aprons, and remember my grandmother and mother always wearing them. I just love everything about kitchens. I think they represent motherly love and goodness all in one room. I'm glad aprons are coming back in style. I particularly liked the soft cotton light fabrics of the old aprons. I don't care for the heavier versions today. Give me a good old fashion apron.

I hope things are better for you, and I wish you many blessings for a healthy, prosperous future.
