Beekeeper Pincushion

Hi ya!

Hopping in for a quick post today as I'm headed to Charleston, SC. This little bunny sure has been on the road a lot lately!

I have received lots and lots of emails from friends requesting my "Beekeeper Pincushion" as they are unable to attend classes in person or live all the way on the other side of the world!


So, I have decided to release the design so everybunny can participate in the fun of making this cutie pincushion. It measures actually measures 8"! Yes, it looks smaller in the photos. ;)



Hop on over HERE to get the PDF pattern for $12.

However, in appreciation and fairness to those who hire me to come and teach, only the "Peach Blossom" flower is available with the design. Those participate in my "Play Dates" will receive the Peach Blossom and the other four flowers.



My calendar is full for teaching in 2018 and I'm now accepting dates into 2019.
Hope on over to my WEBSITE to learn more about a "Play Date" with the crazy bunny lady.

Hugs!

Wonderland Woods and more from Houston

Hi ya! Did you miss me? Did you even realize I didn't show up last week? hee,hee,hee.
Well, time got away from me. I was running around like crazy getting ready to leave for Michigan. I went to speak and teach for the Cameo Quilters. What a fun time we had! I will share photos soon.

Here's a sneaky peek of Wonderland Woods, which will debut January 1st. I will show you how all the blocks go together then. ;) Jules and I had another wonderful time collaborating on this adventure. Stay tuned for more on this!



Ok, now on to more quilt photos from Houston. Enjoy!




























Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am so every thankful for you!

Hugs and friends,

Return from the Houston Quilt Festival

Hellooooooooooo! Boy oh boy do I feel like I have been caught up in a tornado! The last week and a half just flew by! The thought of Thanksgiving arriving in a few short weeks just blows my mind away. If it wasn't for Daylight Savings Time, I would still think it was September. Do you ever feel like you are living in a blur? It's the old age thing isn't it? hee,hee,hee.

Well, my first teaching adventure in Houston was, let me see....AMAZING!!  I had the BEST time and had so much FUN!! The smile didn't come off my face from the moment I got there to the moment I left.

One of the highlights and most memorable things was being able to share this experience with my dear friend from the UK, Sallieann Harrison. I taught Sallieann to quilt back in 2000. She has gone on to be a bright star and teaches quilting in the UK. She has even come up with her own method of using the Valdani size 12 perle cotton to machine applique! I'm so very proud of her and it brought me so much joy to have her help me in my class. She was also a good sport about wearing bunny ears. ;)



Here we are at the photo "op" in the festival. My bunny bag was made especially for me by my Fashionista friend, Jean Werling. I loooooooove it!


My class was sooooooooooo much fun and I adored all my students and the beautiful creations they made. I will be sharing photos of them soon, but first I thought I would start off by showing you some of the quilts. I was blown away again by the amazing talent at this show.

So lets get hoppin shall we? Oh, and just like every year, there will be a photo of the quilt and then the information about who created it. I find reading the stories and the inspiration behind each piece to be fascinating. Also, I believe in giving credit to the creators.















I hope you enjoyed this little tour. Much more to come! Do you have a favorite?
