Back From Bundy

Here we are, back from a whirlwind weekend to Bundaberg with Libby for one of her "FUN"shops. Yet again, we managed to stow away in Libby's bags (Corey hid Libby's ticket ... we nearly missed the plane!!! ... but it gave us a chance to sneak into the bag!!) So we soon found ourselves in the sugar city of Bundy to visit ...

Sue and the girls at The Quilters Shack. If you've never visited, you really should ... Corey and I had a fantastic time playing hide-and-seek! Hee! Hee!
See! There are PLENTY of places to hide. We did have a little problem when it was Corey's turn to hide and I got a bit sidetracked looking at all the pretty fabrics and forgot to look for him ... OOPS! :0)
But ... the reason we were there was for Libby to teach her "FUN"shop and there were some lovely ladies raring to go.
Look at those smiling faces ... Oops! I think Libby's spotted us with the camera ... run and hide again Corey!! I'll try to remember to come and find you! Hee! Hee! But it was soon time to get busy.
Can you see those looks of concentration?
Lots of painting ... and lots of mess! :0) But I think they were enjoying themselves too, cos there was happy chatting and laughing in between brush strokes. Everyone was having a lovely time until ... Corey spotted something alarming ...
... something cute and furry getting lots of "Oohs", "Aahs" and cuddles. HEY!! There's only room for TWO cute furry critters on this blog and that's me and Corey! Hmmm ... then again ... he IS pretty cute ... maybe nobody would miss Corey! Hee! Hee!
We had a wonderful time playing in Sue's shop and Libby said she had a great time too. She said Sue, Ken and the Q-Shack girls looked after her really well. They even made sure she was REALLY well fed for dinner ...
WOW! Half a cow! :0) Thank you to everyone for making our trip to Bundy a lot of fun I'm pretty sure Libby is looking forward to visiting again soon. And so are we, aren't we Corey? Corey? COREY!! Hmmm ... wait a minute ... did I tell him to go and hide in Sue's shop and forget to find him again???? Oops! I guess I'd better go and tell Libby ... or maybe I'll wait until AFTER I've eaten all the Honey Joys for supper! Hee! Hee!

(Or maybe just Jessy today! Hee! Hee!)

Another 'FUN'shop & Sneak Peek

Oh dear! Oh dear! It's chaos in the ArtSmart Craft Cottage studio this week! Libby is off to another of her "FUN"shops this weekend, so Corey and I are being kept busy packaging patterns, counting kits and reminding Libby of all the things she needs to take with her. She's off to Bundaberg this weekend ... lots of warm sunny weather (a bit different to our Melbourne weather!) I wonder if she'll notice if we stow away in her suitcase like we did last time? Hee! Hee!

Maybe when she takes a little break from painting during the weekend, Libby will show the ladies at the workshop her new Christmas pattern ... How exciting! Hmmm ... but that doesn't seem quite fair ... our friends who visit the blog might miss out. Shhh ... while Libby is searching for her lost pencil (Corey ... did you hide it again??) we'll share a little sneak peek with you ...

Oooh! It looks like one of Santa's reindeer has been helping with the Christmas decorations and got a bit tangled in the baubles! That reminds me of the time Corey tried to help Libby put up the Christmas lights. He was supposed to stand still and hold the end so Libby could untangle the lights, but he tried to catch a butterfly that flew in the window and ended up tied up in twinkly lights ... he made a pretty good Christmas tree! Hee! Hee!
Oops! Libby has found her pencil and has remembered another pattern we need to pack, so we'd better go. We'll be back soon to tell you all about the "FUN"shop in Bundy. Bye for now!
