Cathedral Window - Finished

Ahh.  It's a good start to the new year.  I finished the January bucket list - Cathedral Window.  Of course I changed my mind about what I was going to make so that might have helped.  I was going to do a mini wall hanging for my office.  It would have been approximately 18" x 18" but then I realized that it would fit better if I did a vertical mini.  That enabled me to finish it today.

Remember in my other post that I said that the name Cathedral Window came from seeing the fabric through those window panes?  Just for fun I attached the project to my lamp and they are right.  You can see it pretty good.  Of course since my dark blue fabric has a fish theme, which normally wasn't visible, you might have to be a passenger with Captain Nemo on the Nautilus to look out through the windows and see the fish.  :)

The size wasn't the only thing that I changed my mind on.  I started out doing this by hand and then basting the window pane.  I ended up changing to doing it all by machine.  My fingers thanked me.

I also had breakfast with mother today and gave her the present that Nancy had made her.  She loved it!  As you can see she had to examine every part of it and adjust the hat and finally I had to put it on her bed.

See that yellow pillow on her bed?  The Salvation Army gave each residence of the nursing home one of them for Christmas this year.  It matches the yellow in the kitten throw and the yellow hat .  She was very pleased.

How is your day going?
