Folk Art Fusion - Bee Happy

Helloooooooooo there! How's your week so far? Mine has been very creative. I'm having fun finishing up a new Folk Art Fusion Design.

Here's a little sneaky peeky. It's called "Bee Happy."
 

I decided to make another bee design, but I changed the style of the bee in this piece. This will also be one of the classes I offer.


I'm using some lighter colors in my new designs. I guess you can say I feel the need to "lighten up and bee happy." hee,hee,hee  Plus, I really looooooove these Valdani Pearl Cotton colors and have wanted to play with them for some time now.


Last week I forgot to show you the magic door in my studio! This little door is the entrance to my world of creativity. It's my favorite place to be and there is so much inspiration there. Oh...and lots of animals too!


My dear friend Jean gave me this little magic door. It came from a wonderful artist in England, Sue McLearie.
I just love it and I think it is in the perfect spot on my sewing table. What do you think?


Well my friend, I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter! My birthday is actually on Easter this year. Go figure...the bunny lady has a birthday on a bunny day. I think I will spend some time petting Hannah, my precious and sweet Easter bunny.



Light, love and hugs to you!
Michelle and Hannah Bunny too!

Happy early Birthday, Michelle. I love the little door and it is in a perfect spot. I'm sure Harrington is residing on the other side of that door.

Your new design is an interesting peek and i love the lighter colors. Yes, I can see Harrington on the other side of that magical door. Glad to see Hannah has handled a loss, and a couple of moves.

The Valdani purls shown are multi-toned. I didn't realize you had those. Probably I will get some for crochet use, to make flowers. Anyway, looking forward to seeing your project completed. The pink and white blossoms look beautiful so far!

Binka said...

Err..I misspelled pearl, using the goldwork purl spelling! Valdani pearl is what I intend to purchase!

Binka said...

GRRR...When I went to the Valdani website the product is spelled perle! I give up!
Not give up searching - just spelling for now! The website is gorgeous though.

WELL! Look who's here....MISS HANNAH-BANANA! She is the official Easter bunny for me, Shell! Do ya think she will come to Minneapolis in the wee hours on Easter to deliver a basket of eggs? PLEEEEEEEEEEESE?

Happy birthday as you celebrate on a very, very special day. Much love to you and OH! I so love that bee motif. And Hannah. And her nose. And you.

Binka said...

Wishing you a Happy Birthday, Michelle! Hope you enjoy the double-holiday!

Jeanette said...

Happy Birthday Shell. Love the sneak peek. Happy Easter. Hugs, xx

Every thing that you create is beautiful; you just need a special door to enter your creative place so that you leave your troubles on the other side. When you come back out they will have disappeared!! Have a blessed birthday and enjoy every minute of being good to yourself!

Happee Burthday, Michelle :-)
and hugs to sweet Hannah. I'm eager to see her new office. Is she enjoying your new home? And is Sabrina happy with the new spot for her chair? Apparently I have an inquiring mind... :-)

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Oh Hannah you are still a very beautiful bunny and it seems that you have handled the 2 moves very well--so hope the bunny lady is rewarding you for that!!! I love the new design that bunny mom is making and it has my favorite color in it--pink--
be sure to give bunny mom some extra kisses from us for her birthday--
love and laughter, di
