Lots of things...

 I simply cannot wait for Spring, it has been such a cold week here in Tassie, One thing I do like about those cold winter nights is making the house so warm and cosy, I love having a few candles burning just to give off that pretty glow.  This candle looks even prettier on my candle mat I made last year.
 Lovely blues like these mean winter to me. What colours do you like to have around your house in Winter.
  I have had some pretty colours in my sewing room this week, I have been sewing like crazy making dresden blocks for my next class Project.  I am  teaching some lovely ladies how to make a pretty table topper with dredsen blocks using 2 charm packs.
  For any local ladies who would like to join my class please visit Patchwork plus site for all the details. Sarah's site is a delight to visit. ( I made a rhyme., did you get it. lol)
  Other exciting news this week is my beautiful Tilda shopping tote has been published in this months Patchwork & Stitching magazine. And I'm a cover girl. Whoo hoo.
  The very clever photographers at the magazine make my projects look amazing. I always get a thrill to see how good they look on those glossy pages.
  Here is my bag, its a great size for carting your shopping around or a quick trip to the shops.
  Made with hexagons and some lovely text print linen.
 This afternoon I am working on a new design, deadlines are getting closer so I had better get sewing. .
Wishing you all a wonderful week, hope you find some sewing time.

Thankyou for stopping by. xx

It must have been dreadfully cold for you Leanne. Your Tilda tote looks wonderful - well and truly worthy of being a cover girl! Those hexies are a draw card. I have some precut ones that might work for this project. Your blog posts always treat us to some lovely projects.

Your little candle mat is adorable! I always love to burn a candle or two during the winter months. And your bag is quite lovely. It looks like the perfect size for just about anything. Congrats on being a Cover Girl!!!!

I love your candle mat. I'm a blue and purple girl for the winter, although I love bringing in greenery from the garden as well. Great bag and congratulations on being a cover girl

Red and white are my favourite Christmas colours.... your little candle mat would look gorgeous in that colourway too. Well done on making the front page with your little bag... it's gorgeous. Love those fabrics. Looks like a lovely project you are prepping for your class... have fun teaching it. xxx

How cosy your candle mat looks...and I love your bag, it looks beautiful in the magazine too. (Thanks so much for your recent comment on my blog and your question: the main difference between chalk paint and ordinary paint is that you don't need to prepare the surface when using chalk paint, you can just start painting right away!)
Have a great weekend!
