Yesterday I taught two classes at Colorz for Quilts: an applique class in the morning and an embroidery class in the afternoon. I've taught both of these classes numerous times, but not since I moved into my new quilting space. It took a lot of digging to find all my samples and handouts that I use for the classes.

It's the first time I've grown them, and I was really happy with how they performed. I haven't figured out where I am going to put the roots once they are dug up, but I hope they survive the winter!
