Today our precious daughter, Jess, has turned 14! I can’t quite believe how quickly time has passed. When I look at our gorgeous girl and see the woman that she is becoming I just can’t help but be proud. She is beautiful inside and out!
It’s been a relatively quiet day for a birthday but that suits us 🙂 I’ve had a bit of free time to do some sewing this afternoon so I took the opportunity to try the Single Girl pattern
that has been sitting on my sewing table for a few weeks now. I joined the Single Girl Support group over on flickr
, hosted by Katy
, so I can benefit from tips from those who are well practiced at this block. I’m hoping to make Jess a quilt using this pattern so I thought I’d practice first. I used a charm pack of Soul Blossoms by Amy Butler and coupled it with linen.
One block down and a second one waiting for it’s outer frame. It has been amazingly easy and as is usual with these things the cutting out of pieces takes longer than the sewing.
