Are you staying warm? Good gracious this weather is just crazy! I was in Ann Arbor, Michigan last week teaching. I left on Thursday and got home Monday evening. What a super fun time even though I had major stress in getting there, thus the reason I didn't get to my blog post last week.
I shipped three huge boxes of supplies a week and a half ahead of time for the two classes I was teaching. Well, the box of wool got lost! So Wednesday night, I was up until 11 p.m. cutting more wool for the class to put in my suitcase. The wool ended up showing up Thursday evening. Thank goodness. I tell ya, shipping and travel have become such a nightmare.
Anyhoo, at least I had a fun time when I got there. This was my second trip to Michigan. The first trip was in November, right after I got back from Houston. I had a super fun Play Date with the Cameo Quilters in Clawson Michigan. Here are my girlfriends with their creations.
Jan wanted to make a snowflake instead of a flower. Cool!!!
Not sure what was going on with my cell phone when I was taking these photos, but Henya (love her name) looks magical with the light swirls!
This is my friend, Sharon. She is just a sweetie!
This is Cindy. Her last name is also May! We aren't related though. She didn't want her photo taken. I spent a lot of time with her. She is a retired art teacher. Fun!!!
This next group of photos if from my recent trip and Play Date with the Greater Ann Arbor Quilters Guild. Here's my girlfriends from Thursday's "Beekeeper Pincushion" class.
This is my dear friend, Brenda. She took a class with me back in 2015 and has been a blog buddy for many years. She is an Architect and just opened her own firm. I'm sooooooo excited and proud of her!
Carol is a riot. :)
I told Norma she could make a bikini top from her flowers. :)
Next, here are my girlfriends from Sunday's "Heart Felt Notes" class.
Brenda took this class too.
I asked her to bring her cat quilt she designed. This is an actual replica of a window in her house with her cats! Don't you just love it?
This is Norma. She is just a doll. She teaches embroidery at some local shops. Here she is with her embroidery book. What a fun class this must be!
Don't you just love the bees?
I love the dragonflies too.
Here's Norma with her postcard.
This is my new friend, Susan Schwant. She is the lady who is in charge of programs for the guild. She is an absolute sweetie!
I loved this combination of colors she choose. Very unique!
Liz brought her finished pincushion from Friday's class.
Roberta took this class too. These two gals are lots of fun. They gave me a beautiful clay bunny ornament. I would show it to you, but it is in the box on the way back from Michigan. Hopefully it won't get lost like the wool box!
Kathy is also a quilt teacher and author! I loved how she doodled her name tag. Fun!
Looks like a quilt doesn't it?
This guy was in the lobby of the hotel. He made me smile.
I have so much fun teaching and inspiring creativity in others. If you know of anyone who would like a Play Date with the crazy bunny lady, please send them my information. I'm booked through 2018 and now booking 2019.
Hugs and see ya back next week with another installment of "In a Fix." I've been working on the cottage and can't wait to show you the progress. :)
