The first reason for 'hoppy dancing' was the completion of my 'wabbit' I mentioned last post as my August OPAM finish. Do you remember earlier this year I showed you THIS cutie that I'd made?
This little Tilda bunny was made from "Crafting Springtime Gifts" and she is now sitting up at Quilters Angel greeting visitors and tempting them to buy some of the yummy Tilda fabrics Marion and Steph have in stock. Well ... I decided I would like to make another version of this bunny. She was fairly quick and simple to make ... though this time round, I DID make a couple of changes to make things go a bit smoother ... you know me ... can't just make up a pattern without putting my own variations in it! :0) The result was ...
Ta da! A spring time bunny to sit on our dining table. I love how she turned out ... I particularly like her dotty pants and hat. :0) Perhaps that can be her name ... Dotty the Dining Bunny! :0)
So ... that was reason number one for my "Hoppy" dance. Reason two ... it's just over a week until ...
I've booked my seat and am looking forward to loads of stitching, chatting, eating yummy food, giveaways, prizes, competitions, meeting fellow-designers ... OK ... maybe not LOADS of stitching, but loads of the other things! Tee! Hee! Hee! This year's guest designers are Rosalie Quinlan, Debbie McGee and Ella Madsen and Marion and Steph always spoil us silly ... let's face it ... who DOESN'T love to be SPOILT! :0)
This year I'm even MORE excited about Stitchers Dream Day coming up because I'm going to be spoilt even more cos I'm sharing the time with fantastic friends!! Those of you who've been popping in to visit me for a while know that my Bestest-Buddy-Since-We-Were-Nine Lynette and I always enjoy this fun event ...
This was a couple of years ago ... and neither of us have changed a bit! Tee! Hee! Hee! Hmmm ... actually ... I think we've swapped hair colours! :0) Then ... last year, my Dancing-Buddy Lynda joined us ...
... and we had even MORE fun! :0) Well ... THIS year, I have ANOTHER friend joining us on the "Naughty Table". Tee! Hee! Hee!
Looks like she's got a head start on the silliness, doesn't it?! :0) My blogging buddy Toni is coming to play, too ... I am just SOOOOOOO excited that I can hardly wait!! Mind you ... I've got a LOT to do before then ... EEK! Not enough days in my week!!! Do you want to come and play with the Quirky Quads? If you're VERY quick (in the next day or two!!) and contact Marion and Steph, I happen to know there are a few places left. Let me know if you're coming to play ... I'll be out there helping on the Saturday and 'playing ladies' on the Sunday, so if you're coming, we can catch up for a chat ... you KNOW how I love a good chat! :0) Just 10 more sleeps!!
OK ... I'm done 'Hoppy' dancing for now ... the neighbours are all rushing to stand in doorways to ride out the unexpected earthquake! :0) I think I need a cuppa to recover from my outburst of bouncing excitement. Hope you're all having a fantastic week and that there are some BOUNCE-worthy things happening in your life. :0) Til next time ...
BOUNCY BEAR HUGS!
