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
