Welcome, that shirt fabric sounds interesting. Was it easy to sew?

Like the other Merchant & Mills patterns I've made up, it's coming together really well. Just a pleasant, gentle sew with no nasty surprises.

A big welcome from me too!

Look forward to seeing some of your projects!

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Welcome @Ouryve you avatar is intriguing, what is it?

My youngest son (severely autistic) has a big box of favourite pieces of lego that he spends hours counting and sorting. He was far too quiet, one morning and I walked into his room to find everything sorted into groups, covering the entire floor. They stayed like that all week (ouch!) until he decided that it was far to long since he'd listened to the noise it all makes when it's bounced off various surfaces!

It's just a place holder until I can figure out how to make the pic I want appear the right way up - it wasn't playing ball, last night, and I was too tired to fiddle - but I figured it sums up my day to day life pretty well, for now!

Something else that sums up my life is the fact that I have to hide tape measures. Some people have cats who sleep on their projects, I often find that someone has set the table and eaten a snack, on top of my carefully laid out fabric!

I'm actually a bit of an incomer. I've only been up here thirty odd years  ;)
