Hey Guys!

Well, I am back with a new tutorial!  Today I put on trial the Cathedral Window Pin Cushion by Kim from My Go-Go Life.  You should really check out her blog!  Full of color and projects, I absolutely love it!

Let me first tell you about my tutorial experience.

  • How long did it take?  It took me about an hour to complete.
  • Was it easy to follow? The tutorial was easy to follow because it had a bunch of pictures to follow along with.
  • Do you have any tips?  I would suggest you take make sure you pin down the scraps before your turn down.  I was not careful and left my corner uncovered, so I had to find my seam ripper. ;0/
  • Would you make it again?  Of course, and guess what?  I will make one for one of my lucky readers. Just comment for one entry! Follow me for another entry! (put “I Follow” as a comment for it to count) Send a friend over too! 

I decided to give away one of these wonderful pin cushions as a thank you for everyone that keeps encouraging me!  Plus, it’s fun putting things in the mail!  Good Luck!  You need to comment by Sunday at 7pm.  Then I will do a drawing!

Here are the pictures of the “Process.”  Enjoy the eye candy.

I used Pins to base mine.  It worked much better that way for me.
