Bonnie Hunter's Quiltcam

Yesterday afternoon and again this afternoon I have caught up with Bonnie Hunter's Quiltcam where you can see and hear her sewing in her studio while she is working. Yesterday afternoon Bonnie had over 400 people tuned in to watch her sew. It was a real hoot!

I am not sure how many people were logged in this afternoon. I do have to state that it is afternoon here being Sunday while it was Saturday night in Bonnies studio. Bonnie is counting down to her Bali trip which sounds like such fun.

I did hear that Bonnie is planning a trip to Melbourne, Australia in October 2016. I wonder if Bonnie is aware how close New Zealand is to Australia and if she would consider coming here to do a class or two. Well wouldn't that be just fantastic!!!

I didn't get to sew along with Bonnie yesterday or today but I did do some chores while watching and listening, and yes the chores were definitely less boring than usual.

The family were very impressed that I could see Bonnie sewing in her studio live on the other side of the world. Isn't technology fantastic!!!

Hello August ...

Wow - isn't the year just flying by! July has been and gone and I have no idea where it went. 

I thought that I would give you an update on what I have been working on lately amongst everyday life.

Here are two photo frames that we have had for a while and were painted black. They have been given a new look with some copper paint and I think that they show off my friends artwork well.

Here is the second photo collage canvas that I have done. These are two very special cats that have shared our hearts and our home in the past. RIP Brenny and Oscar.

Coming up soon .... our local quilt club exhibition.
