So last night I was happily drawing out applique templates for my Green Tea and Sweet Beans project. I drew them all out and planned to laminate them then use Sarah Fielke's great method of making great circles. ( Check out Craftsy for her class on this).
A word of advice - DO NOT USE THIS PEN TO DRAW TEMPLATES IF YOU ARE THEN GOING TO RUN THEM THROUGH A HOT LAMINATOR - guess what happened??? You are correctomundo! (vanished! yep).
My solution was to put the sheet in the freezer like a maniac willing the lines to come back and they did ( it tells you on the back of the pack about how this works). So I managed to save them. Not the end of the world but a funny story of yet more of my dorkiness!
Here is the rest of my week in pics -
|Hipbees block for Reene|
|Green Tea and Sweet Beans|
|essential fabric order (oh yes!)|
|Christmas colours for patchwork class next week|

There is even one by me! My Winter Trees table runner using the most gorgeous Winter's Lane Christmas fabric.
Here is a sneak peek and the full instructions and requirements are in Fat Quarterly Issue 15.
It is an honour and exciting to have my wee runner featured among all the other fab projects.
This is my first Christmas make and I am sure it won't be my last one.
What have you been working on for Christmas?

Is it just me or are the weeks getting faster and faster????
Before we know it the C word will have arrived - again!
My class are almost finished their mini quilts and they are looking gorgeous.
I have been working on my green tea and sweet beans in the evening too. It is so relaxing and I now have two lozenger blocks!
So that is the latest from me. What have you been working on this week?

Here are some of my current works in progress. I have others but haven't made enough progress on them to warrant a photo.
The first pic is the front of a Christmas cushion cover. Some of the ladies in my current class has suggested that they may like to make a Christmas project next and I thought it would be a great chance to try out a quilt block such as a pinwheel. A great intro to half square triangles !
This will be a class sample when finished and is using Quilter's Linen and the remains of a Winter's Lane charm pack from Moda.
The light block is the Wedding chain block and the two littlies are propeller blocks. Cute aren't they?
Thursday is about Bee blocks. I hope to get caught up and have photos to share on Friday!
What are you currently working on at the moment?
