I believe that only Canadians will go out and surf in the frigid waters of the Pacific Ocean in November ... and so I guess my boys are true Canadians.
Yes, it was pretty spectacular weather for November, but the next day was back to normal.
Now back to the topic at hand -- after being bitten by the Cathedral window bug a couple of weeks ago, I had to give the cushion a go. I have a little Ikea bolster with a cover that has seen better days, so I thought it would be a good pillow to window-ize, as it's smaller than your average pillow.
And, before I forget (seriously, if I get up and walk away, I will forget!), mr. Random Number Generator says that, in this case, the early bird really does get the worm... The giveaway winner is #1

Your pillow will be gorgeous :) Love cathedral windows! I'm a Canadian and I went into the at St Ives (bottom left of England) in March one year and the people on the beach thought I was mad (and I was - it was bloody freezing and tide was out so it was a lonnnnng walk back to get the towel!!).ReplyDelete
