This has been an interesting week for our family as we added a new furry family member! Meet Nala, our new Lionhead bunny!!
If you asked me on Friday if we would own a bunny on by Sunday, I would have told you no way. So are you wondering how this happened? Amanda and I attended a 4H Fair on Saturday mainly to see her boyfriend perform with his Beatles tribute band called Four In A Row. Amanda was so excited to go to the fair and see the animals as she is planning on studying Biology and Animal Sciences next year in college. We headed out to the fair at 10am and stayed until about 4pm during which that time, she begged me a thousand times for a bunny. Let’s just say we spent a lot of time in the bunny tent and the poultry tent!
Long story short, I resisted the begging but couldn’t stop thinking about the adorable Lionhead bunnies all night. Sunday morning came and led into afternoon and I started thinking that if I was serious about getting the kids a bunny, I only had a few hours until the fair closed and also to get to Pet Smart where I would have to run to gather up some supplies. Leah and I were the only ones home and after a couple of text messages to Greg that sort of went like, ‘hey, I’m going to get a bunny, is that cool?’ and a reply of ‘sure that’s cool’, I grabbed Leah and we went to the fair! Poor Leah was in shock and had no idea what was going on and then was ecstatic that she was going to get to choose the bunny! Here she is at the fair trying the bunny on for size! LOL!!!
So we paid for the bunny and headed to PetSmart with her in a cardboard box!! Oh Leah and I giggled the whole way there saying a million times, “We just bought a bunny!” Everyone in the store wanted to know what was in our box! Lol!
The girls named her Nala after the female lion in the Lion King movie since she is a Lionhead bunny. She is two years old and we have a lot to learn about owning a bunny. So far she seems to like us as much as we like her! She is a cutie for sure.
Ok, on to the quilty stuff. This week I am finishing up a fall mug rug pattern that will be available on Craftsy by the end of the week. I just have to bind it and draft the pattern.
I ordered some charm packs to make a few baby play mats for my Etsy store.
I need to start my next 100 Blocks submission due 10/1.
I have many totes, toiletry bags and pillow cases to make for the comic shows.
I talk to my podcast audience often but only in my head and not in the recorder….one day soon, I will record another episode.
For a little aloha today, here are some pictures from Vicki’s Quilt Shop in Kapaa, Kauai and Kapaia Stitchery in Lihue…
This was a nice quilt shop and I loved all the samples hanging on the walls. I almost bought the sashiko and applique kit hanging on the left side of the photo but decided I didn’t need another sashiko project just yet as I’m currently working on the turtle one on the right.
Kapaia Stitchery really just blew me away. It not only had beautiful fabrics and samples but a huge selection of cross stitch items as well.
I immediately fell in love with this Hawaiian ukulele quilt sample…oh just love this…
I didn’t purchase the kit or pattern though because hanging right near it was this pineapple quilt and I already own this pattern and haven’t started it yet…
I could have spent hours just gazing at the samples…
And there’s the turtle quilt I made for Leah after our Maui trip!
I would love to return to this store someday.
That’s it for now. Have a good day!!!
