I'm sorry I missed our visit last week. I returned from teaching in St. Simons Island, GA to having my email system upgraded and migrated to a new platform after it had been hacked. Then I had to learn the whole new system and make it work with my phone, website etc. Then... my business credit card got hacked and I had to deal with all of that. It's really soooooo annoying how much time and money I have to spend fixing things and protecting myself from awful people in society. I can't help but think how lovely the world would be if they used their talents to help others instead of hurt others. I guess that's just how it is though and I'm grateful for the wonderful people who help me get through it all and are patient with my meltdowns. ;)
So, lets hop onto something more fun shall we? Like I said, I went to St. Simons Island to give my "Down the Rabbit Hole"
The Florida gals writing down what colors they wanted on what parts. Oh, and Tanya made me a sweet bunny pin that I'm wearing! Thank you Tanya! :) :)
This is how you wear ears when they start giving you a headache. hee,hee,hee.
Mary, in white, came from South Carolina. I met her last year when I was in Hilton Head. She is so sweet and I'm glad she could be there for my class.
I bring everything needed for my classes except scissors. It's all about inspiring individual creativity. Everyone gets so excited when they see all the goodies I bring. My little bunny mobile is packed to the roof!
I will have a new class to offer in 2020 and I'm already booking dates. If your guild would like a Play Date with the crazy bunny lady, please contact me! You can find more information on my website HERE.
Next, I just have to tell you about my new, forever friend, Loanne Hamje. She is just the sweetest! She invited me to stay with her at her incredibly lovely and cozy home. I know you are going to love her home as much as I did.
First, this gorgeous fountain is in her parking garage. She lives in a fabulous condominium. The fountain helps reduce the noise from cars in the garage. The home builder in me was loving this!
Her inviting front door.
This is what greets you as you enter. My eyes grew big as I gazed upon all those incredible quilts! Loanne has collected quilts for many years.
This is an applique a friend made for her that she had professionally framed. I love the matting.
I'm in love with this custom build in cabinet!
Loanne loves Americana and has lots of red, white and blue collections.
This is her progress on the one she made at this class. Isn't it fun to see how changing the colors makes it so different. I love how she jazzes up the bees! :)
Here is the sweet lady in her studio. You're going to die when you scroll through these photos. It's a fabulous space!
Don't you love the flip flop quilt?
Fabric stash anyone? Her ceilings are 10' high... just sayin. ;)
This is one of her many vintage quilts she has collected.
This is her room. I love the white bedspreads with the quilts at the bottom. Loanne lost her husband, Bob, two years ago. I enjoyed hearing about him and I know I would have loved him as much as I love her.
This is the room I stayed in.
You know I had to choose this bed. ;)
This is her kitchen where she made me a smoothie, coffees and wonderful breakfasts!
This is the formal side of her living room. Quilts and needlepoint everywhere.
I just had to take a picture of her laundry room sink. I love it!!!
We had the best time looking at all the embroidery work that was done on it. It makes me want to do one with a modern flare.... hmmmmm.....
We had an ice coffee out there and this is the view. My favorite Live Oak trees with moss dripping off of them. Pure Heaven!!!
She lives a short walk to the water and
a beautiful public space where a wedding was getting set up. How magical!
Well, did you enjoy this as much as I did? I sure hope so. I'm truly blessed to have a job that allows me to meet new people, inspire their creativity and make them forever friends.
See ya back here next week.
Hugs and friends,
