Stitching and classes

I have made the bag! Here it is ready to be sent away on Monday for the winner of my giveaway. Don't forget to comment on the 2 February post to be in the draw. It is a rather cute little bag.
I also managed to put the churn dash blocks together and add them and the cross stitch stars to my Scandinavian Christmas block. I am so loving making this one! I was planning to do it very slowly over the year but am so motivated to start another block! Mind you I should be doing other things like some UFOs or starting to think about the Stitching day projects. Here it is.
Classes started again this week and it was so lovely to catch up with my ladies in the afternoon and evening on Wednesday. It was pretty good being in the airconditioned shop too as it was very hot. They were all busy starting some of the term's projects or finishing other things. Sue had been very busy over the break and had some lovely show and tell. Here is her summertime cushion.
She also made some of these Annie Downs' Christmas bags.
Last year Sue made these bags for gifts and she finally made one for herself.
And here is little Rudolph made using a Melly and me pattern. He is just gorgeous!
