Hello there!

Well helloooooooooo!

Isn't my camellia pretty? David planted it a few weeks ago. The hurricane destroyed the shrubs I had here so I replaced it with this beauty. It's going to be even prettier when it gets big and is covered in white blooms.

On my walk the other morning, I saw all these white heron at the end of my street. They were having a major breakfast buffet!

My "Within and Inch of My Life" project continues to grow. I love my stitching time each day. I have been stitching since March 28 (the day after my 50th birthday) and haven't missed a day yet. I always stitch what stood out to me the day before. I stitched the white herons one day.

After giving it one last "horrah" at 50 of trying to have long hair, I decided to call it quits and go back to where my hair does best, which is a shoulder length bob. I had five inches cut off and I'm really happy with it.

I had the most wonderful time with the Charlottesville Area Quilters Guild. What a fun and lovely group of friends. I was invited to teach at their retreat at Smith Mountain Lake, which is a five hour drive from my home. My trip was cut short by an evening as there was a MAJOR snow and ice storm on the way. I literally had a tiny window of opportunity to leave before I would have been snowed in for a few days. So while I was exhausted and the thought of a five hour drive in the dark after a full day of work was not appealing, I knew I needed to go. This little beach bunny does not know how to drive in the snow and all the local people there said the country roads are much too dangerous with the ice. So off I went.

I collect "Bunny Ear" photos from my students wherever I teach. hee,hee,hee

I take a lot of gear with me when I teach. My students only have to bring two pair of scissors to class. I bring everything else. When I'm able to drive, I tend to pack lots of stuff. :)

Then, when I get back home, I count all the the inventory and repack it for the next adventure. It usually takes me a few days. Don't ya just love looking at all that Valdani? My students get just as excited as I do over all these nuggets of fun! :)

By Sunday afternoon, I ran out of steam and like the bunnies, I decided to take a much enjoyed nap.

See ya back here next week!

Hugs and friends,
Michelle and the fuzzies

Michelle, would you be able to tell me where you got the two cabinets by the window in you sewing room? The ones with the drawers on one side and the door on the other. They look like they'd be really useful in my sewing/bedroom. And they're really pretty, too. Thank you.

Oooooooo, squishy, squashy BUNSTERS!!!!!!!! Good morning, y'all!

Shell, I wish you a wonderful rest of the month, and let's get some spring action, OK? Even I, lover of winter, am growing anxious to get this show on the road. We have NO SNOW, ever since before Christmas, so our magical white wonderland is NOT!

Big bunny hugs to all!


I love the photo of all those threads spread out on the table--
and yes packing for shows is alot of work--but you seem to be quiet organized with it all--and it looks like a nice fun group of ladies--though you didn't show us what they stitched???
and I love that Henry and Hannah do seem to love each other--
luv, di

Wow that's a lot of stuff to cart around with you for classes. Very impressive. The group looks like they were having a good time. I'm so glad the bunnies are doing so well together, they look like they need the bunny contact. You are such a good person for taking the time and energy and giving the love these little ones need.
