Monday Already

 The weekends go so fast don't they. Saturday I spent the day at Patchworks Plus teaching a beginners class, We had a great time. The ladies are doing so well and we are up to machine quilting their first quilt. There were very happy faces as they are getting nearer to finishing.
 I popped into KMart over the weekend and found this very nice mini box of drawers, perfect to sit on my desk in my sewing room. You never know what you find when you're not really looking.
 I also did some fabric shopping at Sarah's and bought these beautiful fabrics by Black bird designs, they are so pretty and perfect for some Autumn sewing. Now i just need to decide  what to make.
 Yesterday I worked on a few things, including getting the binding ready  for my tilda cup quilt. Now, my close friends know I'm not fond of binding but now I have it sewn on and ready to sew down when the mood strikes.
 I also did a little bit more on my fig tree quilt, My plan is to get this finished over my easter break.
 I made a few more Disappearing 4 patch blocks, these will be for another class I'm going to teach a bit later on.
 I thought I would share with you the gifts I made for my lovely friend Christine from Patchwork all sorts, I loved making this mini dresden pin cushion.
 Christine and I both adore tilda fabrics so we agreed to make our gifts from Tilda, this teal fabric  is so pretty and it was lovely to sew with.  Here is a little table mat.
And some pretty lavender bags with some Theodora Cleave buttons on the front.

Well I had better get on with some sewing before its time to head off to work, Have a great Monday and a wonderful week ahead. Hope you find some sewing time.

I bet your classes are a treat for all involved. You are patient and would ensure that each person understands each step. Kmart has random good things if you go looking. I love your Dresden pincushion and the cup quilt is so prettily quilted. You've been such a busy bee!
