Ooh Pretty

First up thanks to Kathy for the gorgeous pattern I received in the Friends with Benefits giveaway.
This sure looks like a fun pattern from the talented Helen of Hugs and Kisses - in my favourite round shape.
Can't wait to get started, just need to choose colours.


While the rain was falling on Wednesday I stayed dry inside and played with my new fabrics.


I unwrapped this lot and ironed them out.


Then I cut a whole lot of squares.


I paired them all with natural homespun,


and started sewing pin wheels


I'll be sewing some more with these this weekend - I wonder which layout I will choose.

I don't usually use this much plain fabric, but I am liking the look of these already.

Hope there are some pretties in your world.

Snap- I started some pinwheels today. I wasn't sure what size to do, so I googled it, and look what I found! So easy- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekYpJzHoW6E
