Something different and a Happy Birthday!

I have been looking at doing Cathederal Windows sewing for quite some time and have not started it as I thought it was going to be hard. Well I stumbled across this fabulous tutorial from Hyena In Petticoats blog and she has it down pat and to me it all makes sense and is very enjoyable to do. I hope to make a quilt size one and this is what I have done so far.

It’s fantastic as I get to use up a lot of my scraps which was becoming rather a huge amount. Don’t look too close at my sewing as its all new to me this technique and I am finding that as I go along the better I do.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Today is my youngest grandson’s 4th birthday!

 

Happy Birthday Regan

Regan

He is so cute and I love him to bits and I have to get his gorgeous Mum to give him cuddles and kisses from me because he is over in Western Australia and I am here in Victoria.

Wow….I can’t believe its 4 years since he was born…how time flies! His Mum made a heap of cupcakes for him to take to his Kindy so that he can celebrate with his Kindy kids today.

~~~~~~~~~~

Hugs to all……Vicki

Thanks for sharing the link about cathedral windows. I've never wanted to do them, too much trouble. Our youngest DD has asked me to make her one, and she says don't you love me, I say yeah, but not that much!! Now, I can give it a try,

The cathedral windows look very pretty. I did a pin cushion once (the hard way) and that was enough bother. Thanks for putting the link for the tutorial, perhaps I'll give it a go another time.

I made one of these for my brother in a bedspread size. It took me 7 years, because I could only work on it so long and then I had to put it away or start cutting it up with the scissors! When I gave it to him he was astounded, to say the least. All those that I do from here forward are going to be pillow size. They are beautiful and enjoyable to do.- Myra
