It has got to wait. I'm going to Houston

Hi ya! Did you have a fun weekend? It was raining here the entire time. Nice for getting stitching done, but not nice for taking photos. Poo!


This is a new Folk Art Fusion design I was working on about two months ago. I thought for sure I would have it all put together and ready to go by the end of September. NOT!


I always seem to think I can live by this perfectly planned schedule where everything will fall into place. NOT! It always looks good on paper and in my mind. The problem is other things and life in general get in the way. So I've decided to embrace it and realize that I'm not really behind at all. In fact, I'm actually ahead of the game for next year! Woo hoo! hee,hee,hee. ;)


This week I am getting prepared to go to the Houston Quilt Market. I leave next week. Valdani has asked me to be a guest in their booth again this year. I will be signing copies of my book and showing my floss collection.


Are you going to market? If so, this crazy little bunny lady would love to meet you! Please stop by the Valdani booth so I can hug your neck! I'll be the one in the hat. ;)

See ya back here Wednesday.

xx,
Michelle and the Bunnies

HELLO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!

Now I see how you get those straight and fuzz-free lines when you cut; your instruments for cutting are professional looking! WOW, what a pumpkin....great design as always my dear, and I bet the bunnies helped you think of this one. Bunnies love pumpkins! I spotted two buns yesterday right outside my window that were inspecting my pumpkins!!!

HAPPY MONDAY! Anita

This is such a great pumpkin. Thanks for sharing it a year early. Have a great trip. Hope you sign a gazillion books.

Shirley said...

Good Morning, How I would love to be a stow away in your suitcase? It would be so much fun. I will look forward to seeing the pictures that you take of the quilt show. I think it is so exciting about your book and signing party. I will see you again in a few days after my surgery. Take care and thanks for stopping by. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Enjoy Houston!

I guess I better go buy a pumpkin and do some carving - can't just sit and eat Snickers for Halloween.

kc said...

If I was going, I'd surely hop on over and give you a big ole squee right back, but it's not gonna happen this year.... :( But, hey, if you're in the neighborhood, or have some extra time, drop me a line & come for a visit!! We've got no bunnies, unless you count the "dust" variety - those we have PLENTY of...and the puppy sheds enough we could felt it all together...?? Have a wonderful week!!!

bunnits said...

You always manage to make me smile. Thanks!

Christina said...

I wish I could stop by and visit. Have fun and good luck in Houston.
