Insomnia Has Benefits?
I'm not really sure that's true, but when I can't sleep I sew. Some of my best work seems to be accomplished in the middle of the night. Here is what I came up with last night. I saw Wendy's Cathedral Window work on her blog and she directed me to the great tutorial on Hyena in Petticoats (don't you just love that name) and I got inspired to try this and give it a modern twist with some great fabric. It's kind of hypnotic working on this...folding, pressing, cutting, pinning. I haven't done any of the hand stitching yet. It's not perfect, but I'm learning more as I go along. Has anyone made a Cathedral Windows quilt? I'm not sure if I need to stitch through all the layers or just use a blind stitch to tack down the windows. This may end up to be very SMALL or it may go on for years. We'll see!
