Two of my favorites!

Quilts and bags! Last Wednesday at the CW I taught my Spooky Treats quilt class. We had a packed crowd but that didn't stop anyone from having fun. This was such a simple quilt to make that most everyone got their quilts done and ready for the quilter to get started on them. And believe me she has a pile of them including those that weren't in the class. She's going to disown me after she gets them all done! I just love the freindships I am building by teaching classes. Have I told you lately, I love my job!
I was excited to have these two in my class, Tracy(Knotts)Frazier and Linda(Holley)Anthony. I graduated with these ladies and I remember all the good times we had in school way back when. It was good to visit with them and get caught up on things.
Sew, sew, sew!
Suzee Q(Anderson) showing off her quilt. This is the first project Suzee has been able to sew since her stroke a few months ago. I am so glad that she did it with me, and I am glad to see her doing so well. Wow, what a fright they had. You amaze me Suzee Q.
Look how adorable this border is. She changed her fabrics up a bit. So spooky like!

Then on Thursday night it was my usual bag class. These ladies came all prepared to make the Bella Bag. Another successfull night. Everyone got their bags completed. Yahoo!
Meet Carolyn and her Bella Bag.
The smile says it all. "I did it"! Did you hear it snap? Katie has become a regular Bag Lady. She is so full of life and is always ready to learn more.
Katie has even got her mom coming. Linda and Katie Magelby with their bags. Time for the straps. They both have a love of vintage fabrics and their choices on this one were awesome. You "SEW" girls!
Nanette and her daughter, Whitney are regulars also. We had Marianne join us that night. I hope she had an enjoyable time. Don't their bags look amazing? I wish I had taken pictures of the others before they left. Darn it all! They were super cute too.
I have opened up a second class for the Bella Bag. If you are interested stop in the CW or contact me and we will get you all set up. The class will be Saturday, Oct. 16th from 10:00 - 1:00. There are a few spots left. Hope to see you there.
