Long Weekend Sewing

 I love a long weekend, don't you? Plenty of time to catch up on the things we love most but don't often have enough time, I have had a great weekend. Saturday saw me heading off to George Town to teach a beginners class at Patchworks plus, it was a great day. Lovely ladies in my  class who were thrilled to be making their very first quilt.  I love seeing their faces when their seams are perfect and they are so happy, they can't believe they "did" that.  Sarah had a few of my quilts in her cupboards that she had quilted for me, here are 2 of them. Aren't  they beautiful. The pattern is from Lor Holt's quilty fun book. These cups are so much fun to make. I made one  in fig tree fabrics....
 And one in Tilda. Its so pretty and perfect to hang in my kitchen.

 I also built a house over the weekend, yep. I'm super woman. What do you think? Its a pattern by fig tree from Joanna's book With Fabric and thread. I have admired this quilt for some time and finally got around to starting it. I am looking foreward to working on it  some more today.

 We only have a few summer flowers left in the garden now, these are called Asters and its my first year growing then, they are so pretty. I'll definately be planting these again next season.

 Remember a couple of weeks ago I was making some jam jar covers with these old cross stitch projects I found in the cupboard,

 Well I have made 2 and they turned out so pretty. Just a simple ruffled edge around the cross stitch piece and tied with some ribbon.
I have the nicest looking pantry.

So thats my weekend, so glad I  have today to tidy up my sewing room and  work on some stitching. Very relaxing indeed.
Enjoy your day and I hope you find some sewing time.
