Sneaky Peeky and Podcast Link from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Hi my friend!  I hope you have been having a good week and a good March so far. The weather has been absolutely nuts around here. One day it is almost 80 the next day it's 40! Mother Nature is certainly not happy.

This week I want to share a little sneaky peeky of something new that I will be debuting either late April or early May. It's called "The Shell Collector."



This new design will be part of a whole new rabbit hole I am hopping down and I'm really excited to share it with you ...

Packing, Cutting and the Cat from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Hi there!

I've been a busy bunny around here. I'm getting ready to visit the Sandhills Quilters Guild here in NC. We are going to have a fun play date together making my "Beekeeper Pincushion."

This is a finished pincushion by my friend, Moira MacAvoy, from the Charlottesville Quilters Guild class. Isn't it beautiful? Moira is an embroidery artist and it shows in her exquisite work.



David has been cutting hexies for me. I have loaded them in my SHOP if you are interested. I also have a few openings left this year for Play Dates if ...

Heartfelt Notes from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Well helloooooooo!

In celebration of the month of love, I decided to release my Heartfelt Notes pattern for purchase until Valentines Day, February 14.



This pattern is normally exclusive to my "Play Date" participants. It's a really fun class and I love seeing all the creativity that comes from it.

Each of these 4" x 6" postcards features my signature "reverse wool applique" technique.



I love adding all kinds of different embroidery stitches with Valdani perle cotton. I think the variegated threads make the wool felt shine don't you?




There are five postcard designs in the pattern with ...

Hello there! from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Well helloooooooooo!

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 ...

A Quick Hop In from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Hi my friend! Hannah here. I'm hopping in really quick for Mama this week as she is getting ready to hit the road and head out on her first "Play Date" of the year. She's super excited to be spending some time with the Charlottesville Quilters at their retreat. She was suppose to teach for them in September, but Hurricane Florence had other plans for her and us! ;) They were kind enough to rebook her at their retreat and I know they will have lots of fun!


Henry and I are friends, but I still like to have ...

November is Here! from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Helloooooooooo! Hannah here. Mama apologizes for being a day late with this post. Sometimes her life doesn't go according to plan and she has to go with the flow. This month she asked me to give you an update. So let's hop to it shall we?


First, we are very hoppy that Fall is finally arriving here in Bunnyville. It's been dreadfully hot and Sabrina kitty and I have shed our fur all over the place. Mama said she could have three more bunnies and kitties with the amount of fur that came off us. The humidity ...

Hello dear friend! Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit!

I hope this first day of September finds you well. I absolutely, positively LOVE September! Every year, this month feels like the "kickoff" to the season of festivities! Plus, it is the month that starts my most favorite season of all, Fall! In addition, September marks my 11th year writing this blog. Thank you for following along on all my adventures.

Let's catch up shall we?

There is something about our Carolina blue skies. This is an "unedited" view of Bayfield Cottage when I returned from my morning walk. What a beautiful way ...

In All Honesty from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Hi my friends!

As promised, I'm back here on the 15th to "Hop" in and say hi!

So last month, a long time dream of mine came true! I have been attending the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival for 27 years. I have always wanted to be an instructor at this show and I finally did it! Here is my Wonderland Woods quilt.



What an honor it was and what a fun time my students and I had in class! It was so thrilling to be on stage as an instructor at the "Show and Tell." I remember dreaming of ...

Classes in Michigan from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Well hello there!

Are you staying warm? Good gracious this weather is just crazy! I was in Ann Arbor, Michigan last week teaching. I left on Thursday and got home Monday evening. What a super fun time even though I had major stress in getting there, thus the reason I didn't get to my blog post last week.



I shipped three huge boxes of supplies a week and a half ahead of time for the two classes I was teaching. Well, the box of wool got lost! So Wednesday night, I was up until 11 p.m. cutting more ...

Welcome to Wonderland Woods! from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Happy New Year my friend! I'm so excited for this year! I don't know why, but I feel like it's going to be so much fun and filled with some really happy times. I'm traveling all over to teach my "Folk Art Fusion." I love meeting new people and I love inspiring creativity.

Speaking of inspiring creativity, I am delighted to welcome you to "Wonderland Woods!"



Once again, I was inspired by Jules' watercolor paintings. She is such a talented artist and one I am ever so lucky to call my friend! It was really fun ...

Coming January 1st. from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Hellooooooooo! How are you? Did you have a fun and festive time? Our Christmas was nice and quiet. We enjoyed staying home and binge watching some shows and having a nice dinner. Oh...and I took a nap! LOL!!

Well, my teeth saga continues. I was suppose to get them tomorrow, but now they have been delayed another week. The last time I had this done was in 2010. It took 9 days from start to finish. By the time I get these, it will have been a month. Let's just say I really miss my old dentist (who ...

Beekeeper Pincushion from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Hi ya!

Hopping in for a quick post today as I'm headed to Charleston, SC. This little bunny sure has been on the road a lot lately!

I have received lots and lots of emails from friends requesting my "Beekeeper Pincushion" as they are unable to attend classes in person or live all the way on the other side of the world!



So, I have decided to release the design so everybunny can participate in the fun of making this cutie pincushion. It measures actually measures 8"! Yes, it looks smaller in the photos. ;)



Hop on over HERE to ...

Classes- Online vs In Person from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Well hello there! It seems we can't get through one week this year without some sort of chaos or disaster! It's truly sad, exhausting and I know so many friends are feeling the same way. Everyone I know is just plain worn out with all of it. Thus the reason being able to hop down the rabbit hole is a welcome respite from the ugly and depressing world.

That being said, I had the most wonderful time last week with my new friends at the Charlotte Quilter's Guild. I truly enjoyed being around all the positive, creative ...
