Following the light

Hi ya! How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful! It was a weekend of quilting. I went to a guild event, more on that next Monday and spent the weekend finishing up the piecing of my PHD (project half done).

The setting sun was so beautiful that I decided to photograph this quilt top outside. My fence seemed to be a perfect spot. I have had the blocks for this quilt since 2005! It's for my best friend, Beth. Thank goodness she doesn't redecorate her house that often. I haven't made a pieced quilt in years so it was fun to work on this for a change although it was also difficult as I'm not very good a "scrappy" quilts. I think it turned out okay and I know Beth will like it. That's all that matters. It's heading to the long arm quilter on Tuesday.

After I photographed my quilt, I got sidetracked in the yard by my little apple tree. Again, I loved the look of the setting sun against the red of the apples and green of the leaves. This is my most favorite time of year.

As I entered my house through the "friend" door, I stopped to turn on my willow lantern. I love how this lantern looks here and the shadows it creates on the wall. I think it is a warm, cozy welcome to all my friends.

Light, love and hugs to you,
Michelle, the Bunnies and Sabrina too

Some random Happy things for this Friday.

Hoppy Friday! I hope you had a fun week. It's beginning to cool down around these parts and finally starting to feel like fall. Yippeee!

There were many things that made me happy this week. First was going to my favorite town here in NC, Wilmington. David finally had off from work so we went down there for the day. We had a wonderful lunch and I had my Starbucks' grande breve latte. We also drove around and explored more of the area. We even drove past a film crew! We were wondering if they were shooting for the Sleepy Hollow TV show.

This is a cottage I'm in looooove with. I want to move into this neighborhood and live in this house. I wonder what the owners would think about me constantly stalking their house. hee,hee,hee

 Isn't it the cutest? I love the green. 

I spent a bunch of time in Bunnyville this week working on a special project. Here's another sneaky peeky. I'm keeping my bunny ears crossed that something special will come from this project.

Of course while I was working, I had to stop and pet the bunnies a million times. Harrington's wonky ear and his soft little self, always makes me happy.

Hannah's star on her nose always brings me good luck. I'm happy and grateful that while her health issues still flair up and will never go away, I have managed to keep them under control. She is such a lovey girl and blesses my life every day.

Sabrina had her hysterectomy a week ago and is doing really well. She has decided she likes to hang out and play in our whirlpool. Hey, at least somebunny around here likes to use it! ;) I have a video on my Facebook page if you want to check it out. I haven't been able to get a good photo of her yet. She's always wiggling around!

Finally, I was so excited to be able to see the moon eclipse. I love the moon and this was a totally cool sight.

So, what made you happy this week?

Fellowship of the Flowers week 42

This week the cone flower returns.

The little baby rick rack returns too.

I thought some french knots would be fun on top.

How are you coming with your flowers and projects? Have you tossed them all in a pile until winter? hee,hee,hee.

It will be here before we know it

I know it's not even Halloween, but we all know Christmas will be here before we know it. Plus, if you are a person who makes gifts, you already started a long time ago.

I'm going to make some postal fusion postcards for a few friends.

I've been playing Christmas music for the last two weeks as I've worked on mine. 

They make a wonderful gift for the person who has everything.

Who doesn't like getting a piece of art in the mail?

You could also attach a little ribbon to the postcard so they can use it as an ornament on their tree. 
It would have your special note to them and the date. Fun!

My Postal Fusions for Christmas pattern is available for instant download in my Craftsy Shop.

I also put together a few kits and have them available in my SHOP if you would like to get hopping on your Christmas presents.

Hugs to you and have a fun week.

Hoppy Friday! A little local music.

So two weekends ago we celebrated Captain's birthday in a really fun way.

She was lucky enough to have country music star, Bryan Mayer perform in her garage for her birthday.

Now it wasn't that he just decided to show up for her birthday.

Bryan is a local fella and each year he donates his talent and time to different charities. It's his way of giving back.

Our dear friends, Rick and Marie Phillips (aren't they cute?) placed a bid at the Heart Ball and won Bryan's talents for an evening.

Captain and Eric offered to host the event and have a pool party, but after months of trying to get everyone's schedules to work out, it ended up being Captain's birthday weekend and instead of a pool party, it became a garage party.

Bryan is an awesome fella and he's soooooooooo tall! Everyone laughed and laughed when I had my photo taken with him. I'm 5' and he's 6'8".

It was such a wonderful time together laughing, dancing and celebrating with friends. Happy Birthday Captain!

Here are two songs I really love of Bryan's. Enjoy and go look him up on Facebook!

See ya back here on Monday.
