beautiful day

Today it was sunny and warm for this time of year. I started to clean my basement again. I am re arranging some things in it. Hoping to set up a quilting table and try my hand at quilting. I have to get some stuff removed and give other stuff a way and then it should be fine for the table. I have also been going through a mound of papers to see what I shall throw out and or shred. I have a ton of patterns and magazines too.But it all takes time to go through no easy way to get it done. Hope you all are having a great day and may the sun shine down on you .

Fabrics for Class

Here is a few pictures of the fabrics I have chosen for my class next weekend the 14th of Nov.
I have the book on the stack to see if they are close enough I think they are good enough to sew it with. The red and pink are for the roses and the inner boarder.The yellow for the flower centers and green for the outter rings and leafs on the circles.
