The cathedral windows pillow is one of the most rewarding projects I have done in a while. I followed the instruction from this book I had purchased last year. It is full of cute ideas for "pretty little pillows".
While doing a google search about cathedral windows, I found this blog. She did a terrific job, showing with photos, how to do this technique. I hope you will give it a try. It is a great way to make something beautiful using scrap fabric.
I also finished two felt cases for my small sewing scissors. I apologise for not remembering where I found the idea. But, it is a easy pattern to make up. This was my first attempt at the blanket stitch...I do need more practice!
My daughter, who also sews, will be gifted with the pink and green case.
More and more, I'm finding out there is just not enough time to do all the projects I would like to do. Especially since I live in the country and other outside projects are pulling me away from the sewing nook. Do you also find that to be true with you?
Enjoy your Friday....
