While bloghopping this morning I came across this
neat start of a Cathedral Window at and sew it is and really liked it. It reminded me of a couple of CW pincushions I had made. The one on the left (note the telltale 70s calico center) I made in the early 70s. I always loved that little pinny and saved it for all these years. A few months back I decided I wanted to make some for our guild's boutique. Couldn't for the life of me remember HOW!! Did a little research, came up with the instructions for a CW, and voila, the one on the right was born. Love adding beads to the four points. Another thing I had forgotten was how blasted long it took to make one! Great handsewing for TV time though. Today being Fathers Day, I will take my husband on a picnic to either Smithville Lake or Watkins Mill State Park--two local spots of beauty. My own father passed away nine years ago and I still miss his practical advice, preparedness, and unconditional love.
