With my son's wedding fast approaching I am still finding a bit of time to slot in a bit of sewing.
I look at this photo taken of my son last weekend and thought how young and handsome he still looks. He's my only child and cherish him even though we often don't see eye to eye. I guess that is because we are a lot alike.
Where have the last 35 years gone, I still see him as a boy and he is a man and just embarking on the most important day of his life.

As for the sewing I have finished my Civil War block 19 Missouri Star and saw on Kathie's blog on the 23rd April that she had made a lovely little churn dash quilt set in some red floral fabric. I knew I had some of that red somewhere and after sorting through some boxes found it so now I am making one too.
Kathie's are 3in block whereas mine are 5in finished , I think I have decided to set mine a little differently too but Kathie's was certainly the inspiration for mine. Thanks Kathie.

Talking about sorting through boxes - Look what turned up .I started the Prickly Star blocks back in 2005.They now deserves to be on the sewing bucket list!
The quilt was on the front cover of Better Homes and Gardens Patchwork and quilting back in October 2004 and is by Cindy Blackberg.
Well I really am on count down to the wedding ,This time next week after all the planning it will be over, But I am lucky I will have gained a wonderful DIL.
