In honor of my mother-in-law’s memory, I will be giving away one free copy of My Kitchen Window to a Sewhooked Flickr Member that shares photos of projects made from my patterns during February 2015. This wall hanging pattern was inspired by a stained glass piece made by Carol and gifted to my family many years ago.
Hey all, I want to leave a quick note for my friends and readers and let you know that there will be no Talk To Me Tuesday today.
We’ve had another death in the family and I just can’t face recording a video right now. You may remember, that we lost my grandmother almost three weeks ago.
My wonderful, amazing, kick ass mother-in-law, Carol, passed away yesterday and aside from telling you this, I’m pretty much speechless.
Instead of sharing stories or thoughts or a lot of words, I want to share some of her stained glass. It was one of the many things that she mastered and she was amazing at it. This is just a tiny sampling from my own photos. I hope you enjoy them.
This final photo is a quilt that I made based on the piece shown at the very top of this post, which hangs in my kitchen window.Before I started sharing my patterns online, I made a version of this for Carol. With her permission, I then shared the pattern with the world. It makes me happy to think there are more versions of this floating around out there.
As you may have heard on yesterday’s TTMT, I’m breaking up the content from my erstwhile book, Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends, and offering up themed sets for sale through Sewhooked. Set 1 is Monster Madness and includes the five handsome fellows you see here.
Whatever your poison, I’ve got a monster for you!
