Yes, Elnina is right. I read an article with the same information . They are legal tender until 30 September 2022.

It also said that once they are withdrawn then your Bank or the Post office can take them but only to deposit them into your account.

I don't have any old £20 notes so not worrying  :)

They're all so lovely and so original too. Have looked at them a couple of times and enjoyed the variety and
they look too good to use. Well done everyone who took part in it.  I may be tempted to take part next time
if you will let me  :P

I may have another look at these again later. Lovely Autumnal colours. :thumbsup:

@BrendaP  I'm not going to bother with the CAB. The last time I sought help from them they were desperately short of advisers and there was nobody available to help.

I agree about the CAB. I have been helping a friend with some issues because CAB just aren't what they used to be.

I know I need to see a solicitor more than someone from Citizens Advice. I've been making a list of all the questions I need to ask.  :thumbsup:

You do urgently need to consult with a solicitor before agreeing to anything and certainly not signing anything at all until you have consulted one.  You don't need to sit and write out a list of questions (time consuming). Book an appointment and the Solicitor will be able to guide you on this. I know its a difficult time emotionally too but you need that professional help now tbh.

I'm still not too worried. 

I'm worried for you because time is of the essence here Sandra. Before you know it you could get pushed into agreeing to just sign off the house sale with no time to consult with a solicitor to see what is best for you?

Wish I'd got more time to sort all my stuff before putting the house on the market.

You do have more time? You are in control of what you want and need and by talking this all through with a solicitor

Speak to a solicitor. I feel sure that you shouldn't be being rushed into anything, even putting the house onto the market until you have gone through everything from a legal point of view first?  Why should you be rushed so?  How stressful is that for you too? Especially with viewings etc invading your personal space before you are in control of this from your side?

Have used fabric godmother many times for patterns bought off their site as well as patterns I already had.
Paper quality is good and delivery is good too. Well packed and presented and very reasonable. Highly recommended.

I saw this & I thought you may be interested! / Re: Maison Fauve

Thanks @b15erk

I don't have any patience either for putting pdf's together and I hate it too.

I'm sure I have several fabrics I can use for the jacket so will make a start on a toile first for it. It says its an advance pattern but think I have done most of the techniques shown before so am happy with that. But looking forward to working it through with the video online too. I like the style of the jacket very much and have seen some examples of it made up too in different fabrics. I like that you can use a zip or buttons too.

I'll let you know how I get on with as I go through it definitely.   :)

I'll inspect the pattern more closely next week as have some urgent paperwork to get done which will take me a week. Am itching to start it though. The dress pattern will have to wait for a bit longer unfortunately. I bought it at the same time as it was sold out in many places and I didn't want to have to buy it later at a much more expensive price.

Looking forward to making it.

On another note, I do have another jacket pattern I want to make up but cannot find the  fabric anywhere online in the UK. Have seen it on  US site but I expect it will be far too expensive to buy it from there. It's a casual jacket pattern. I'll have to see which thread I can put it on?

£15 for a pattern ?? :faints: I'd expect a fully finished garment for that price.....Perhaps that's why I'm only to be found in The Dark side  :faints:

They're being sold for £18.99 for a paper one but think some of the patterns are pdf ones on the Maison Fauve site?
I dont do pdf's. I hate them.

£15 is not a lot for a pattern of this calibre. I don't know what fully finished garment you could buy for £15 tbh. But no doubt you will let me know  ;)

This company has just come up on my FB feed, and it looks really interesting.

Although it is French, the tutorials are good, so easy enough to follow.

I need to give this a closer look, I'm sure some of these patterns have my name on them... ;)


Yes I bought two of these patterns on Sunday and they arrived on Wednesday not had time to do anything with them yet.
The outer envelope is beautiful and the paper pn the outer envelope very tactile too. I was impressed. There is a booklet inside in french and English . The pattern is on paper similar to the type of paper used when you order a printout from a copy shop. I would look around on the net to find the best price for these patterns as well. I got two for £30 including postage.

I have them in front of me as we speak. I got The Atlas dress/blouse pattern and the Sunset Jacket one too.
I'm very impressed so far. And was going to post something on here tomorrow to see if anybody else had ordered a pattern.

Simplicity patterns half price here as well.

Only £1.50 delivery for orders under £10.
Only £2.50 delivery for orders £10 to £49.99.
Free delivery for orders £50 or more.

Haven't seen any other patterns brands reduced yet.

Seeing annie's post on the dress design kit for sale, reminded me that I have this 'Lutterloh - The Golden Rule Complete Kit'.  I bought it a couple of years ago and never used it. It's still all packed up in the box it came in and unused.

Just wondering if anyone may be interested in it?  Please let me know and I can send sort out some pictures of it.

There's this very long and detailed review here. Wondered if you had seen it?

No.7 Judy Martin
No 12 Hour glass

Thats the best way I can describe them?


Please could I have number 12 or number 7 or both if possible.

What beautiful stunning quilts. I love quilts but definitely do not have the patience to make one. I would love the quilts to use in my two bedrooms.

Sorry don't know how to add pictures.

Thanks for the information @UttaRetch.

The fabric looks like a very thick, heavy sateen fabric (maybe even heavily bonded too). That would explain some of the issues with the finished item. I'm surprised to see it (like everyone else) tbh, from a Company like Vogue.

The pictures aren't that great either. Not up to their usual standard?

Is this something made up for the magazine themselves or is it something made up by the vogue pattern makers themselves?  Do you have a link to the page where you saw it please? I can't quite work it out as it looks like its from a magazine article perhaps?

I have already done two.

And me too.  ;)
