working behind the scenes

Last night while you were sleeping we launched our new website.  As with anything new, it may take us a few days to work out any glitches, but I’m hoping we don’t have any!  We’ve tested it, and then tested it again, and like a mother pushing a bird out of the nest, last night […]

mimi'sdarlins - What fun1 I’ll be checking this out as soon as I get an extra few minutes….or maybe right now :)

November 22, 2014 - 7:03 am

Pat Godkin - Congratulations on the new website! I am going to give it a whirl!

November 22, 2014 - 7:07 am

Hildy - Your new website looks great and thank you, thank you, thank you for the PDF option. Shipping is a killer and quite often an argument to not buy a pattern.

November 22, 2014 - 7:43 am

DeAnna Dodson - Ooooh, I love the digital pattern option. As mentioned above, shipping can be a killer for just a pattern. I love the new site! :D

Pam in Indiana - Hi Anne!
I’m looking forward to your website! But I’m not able to go there. When I click on the link I get a funky outline of the site. Is it my iPad or is the problem on your end?

I also get a “buy this domain name” when I type in bunnyhill.com….

Thanks!
Pam

If you’re out and about

If you’re out and about this holiday season and you pass a Williams Sonoma store, turnaround and go back.  You’re in for a treat. Every year I recommend their Hot Chocolate (I make mine with milk).  It’s a treat that happens once a year, and it makes the season special.   This year they’ve added […]

Sandy M - OMG. Those marshmallows are A-DO-RABLE! I love W&S. They have a wonderful stuffing that pops up for Thanksgiving. The Focacia and the Cornbread variations are so yummy. Oh, and their pumpkin butter… I don’t like pumpkin anything but I always get that because it’s delish.

November 20, 2014 - 7:34 am

mimi'sdarlins - Oh, I so agree about Wms Sonoma hot chocolate mix! The one with peppermint is super, too. We’ve had their roasted marshmallows, but these snowmen are so adorable, we’ll have to pick those up for all the kids. They also have some of the best sauces and salsas…ooh and cookies….just everything we get there is superb! Now I’ll be thinking of this all day…may have to make an unplanned drive. Plus, dark chocolate is good for us :)

November 20, 2014 - 7:39 am

Kathleen O'Grady - How precious!! I will be finding some of those, I hope! Thanks for sharing!!

November 20, 2014 - 8:53 am

Pat Godkin - Thanks for the tip! We love both hot chocolate and marshmallows-cannot resist those snowmen”

November 20, 2014 - 10:00 am

ina - those snowmen are ADORABLE! ;p

November 20, 2014 - 11:43 am

Hildy - Oh, these snowmen are too cute! I’m sure Lily loves them!

November 20, 2014 - 8:16 pm

Mary S - This looks scrumptious. Have to check and see if it is in this area. Thanks.

November 20, 2014 - 9:12 pm

DeAnna Dodson - Oh, Lily will love those!

That looks delicious. :D

Psst, I have five flower centers and eight bunny eyes to do, and then I’ll finally be finished with my Baltimore Bunnies quilt.

Thanks so much for the beautiful design. It’s still my favorite.

November 21, 2014 - 2:08 am

Wendy Williams - So jealous, live in the UK and don’t have any Williams Sonoma stores, but maybe its a relative who owns the store and will send me some! x

November 21, 2014 - 5:21 am

Barb - Those snowmen marshmallows are too adorable! (Actually, I think they remind me of some of your snowmen designs – maybe WS got the idea from you!)

And who doesn’t love hot chocolate! I think a trip to WS is on my To Do list:-)

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Acorns and Roses

Two weeks before Thanksgiving and in California we have acorns falling and roses blooming.  Feels normal for November.  I set off for the farmer’s market this morning with my camera in hand.           Our Farmer’s Market is open for one more weekend believe it or not. There’s one more photo I took today… […]

Tammy - Congrats to big sister Lily, I am sure she’s going to love being a big sis!

Love the colours in your pics, and it has been a strange season seeing all kinds of blooms at the wrong time.

The fabric in the burp cloths is adorable, how cute.

November 15, 2014 - 5:02 pm

Patricia G Hayes - Hi Anne,
What a great idea bringing your camera along on your farmer’s market trip this day. I truly love the carrot’s photo, they are looking yummy. Some look like a variety I am not familiar with All your photos, the brightness made them all simply tempting to eat right now. hehe Don’t I wish. The berries, this must be your second of the season??
Anyway thanks for sharing with all of us.
Wow, this is going to call for more trips across the pond, another little body soon to be on your lap. How wonderful.
Enjoy every minute with your family. Patricia

Mary S - Congratulations on the new little one coming.

No roses blooming here or veggies. Too cold.

November 16, 2014 - 2:21 am

Hildy - Congrats for become a grandma again although the baby will be far away. But February is a great month, my birthday is 18th and sometimes the weather is quite good here then.

November 16, 2014 - 7:58 am

Juanita in OH - Hi; Thank you for these beautiful photos. Congratulations for the new baby to come!
There is nothing in the world greater than grand parenting. LOVE the fabric.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

November 16, 2014 - 8:06 am

mimi'sdarlins - Congratulations on your new baby granddaughter on the way! Your life is filled with ‘little women’, how wonderful. I love the sock monkey fabric (who doesn’t?), made pajamas and matching overnight bags for my granddaughters a few years ago. Have fun sewing for the new baby :)

ada shave - The only thing that is growing in Newfoundland, Canada is snow balls. They started yesterday.

What a precious little bebbeh owl! I hope you’ll post more pictures if you get them. :D

October 23, 2014 - 5:36 pm

Louise - Love the owls! Geez sure do wish I could follow my favorite local quilt shop owner and be able to have a preview of what she chooses for us for the coming months. What fun that would be. Also anxious to see your new line and Bren’s as well. Have a wonderful time

Joanne Moore - Love the photo of the owls!! Thanks for sharing. What a neat encounter. Have fun at Market!

Dawn - Have a truly super time at Market, wish I were there too – one day hopefully :) Love those little burrowing owls, we don’t have them in the UK, they’re so lovable! Thank you for posting the pic of them x

October 24, 2014 - 5:16 pm

gailss1 - Have a great time at “Market” and will watch for news….love those little owlets, how adorable!

October 25, 2014 - 2:34 pm

mimi'sdarlins - How fun to be heading to market again! During a recent shop hop, I couldn’t resist your Mistletoe Lane fabrics, they’re even prettier in person.
Love the little owls and must send this to a friend who watches endangered owls on camera. They are in a preserve so they can hopefully breed and have a better chance of survival.
Have fun at market!

October 25, 2014 - 8:40 pm

Erin Stewart - Those owls!!! You really must weave them into a pattern somewhere so we can use the fabric and see them every day too. ;)

I hope you’ve had a lovely time at quilt market!

October 28, 2014 - 12:09 pm

Loris Mills - I love those burrowing owls! We have enjoyed one or two each year hanging out with us through the winter. I think it was so dry this past year that they didn’t visit. I missed them.

November 4, 2014 - 1:53 pm

Lynn Koeppen - We wished we could have met you at the Quilt Festival. We were disappointed that very few designers stayed for the Festival. Maybe next time! :-)
