Sunday's Pinwheel Post


Spoke to my sister this evening and she requested a picture of how the pinwheels was progressing, so seeing as though it has been 4 days since I last posted *shock! horror!* So here is an update just for you my sister dearest!

Managed to get a bit done this weekend. The weather is cooler now, definitely quilting weather. We received some vouchers in the mail from our local video/DVD hire store so continuing my neglectful/unattentive/slack Mummy week, went up with the girls and we got out 5 weekly movies! Shrek 2, Cinderella 2, Brother Bear 2, Toy Story 2 and a Princess one. Had a relaxing 2 hours this afternoon sitting snuggled on the couch with Daz and Grace watching Toy Story 2 while Milly was napping, I was doing some hand sewing, Grace was enjoying being alone with both parents.

Anyway, backto the pinwheels....... finished three sides. Thought I did my maths and worked it out that I needed 50 rectangles, but no! When I laid it all out before sewing them together, discovered I was a few short! The ends fitted perfectly, but the one side I have had to fudge a bit and sew a little bit in the 1/4th inch seam, just in some places to make it fit! I like the pinwheels on the corner too.

Thank you all for your lovely comments too from my last post. I love logging in and seeing how many people have left a comment. If you are a lurker, do pop in and say hi!
