Made a small bit of progress this afternoon, a bit of sewing followed by a bit of unpicking  :rolleyes: Anyway the basket is now in place so tomorrow, after i've done the housework, i will stitch some ropes to connect the basket to the balloon (will practice this on scrap fabric first) then add the batting and back it and maybe get to do some quilting, then all that leaves is the piping and back to do.

@Bill Glad your feeling better today. I know what it feels like when you love sewing and you can't think of anything to make, it's rather annoying. How about making Pam something for christmas, maybe a bag or a purse, do you need any cushions or maybe you have a blank wall where you could make a sewn/applique wall hanging, christmas mug rugs for presents, a dog collar for Tara.

Well i've steamed cleaned the lounge carpet & hallway, that won't take too long to dry. Good news is my fat quarters are out for delivery between 9 & 10:30 am  :dance: this means i can carry on with my project this morning.

@Celia Please don't worry about the garden, you have your new fence in place which is the main thing, continue with it in the spring, no point in worrying about something that you have no control over, look out the window and laugh at it and enjoy all the things that you can do inside  :hug: You've got me started on these beads now  :laughing: spent yesterday evening browsing bits and bobs.

Just booked myself in for a hair appointment on the 4th Dec @10am, thought i'd treat myself to a cut and highlights, i'm meeting up with a friend the following weekend and i don't want her to think she's meeting worzel gummidge  :laughing:

Morning 😁

I’m still snuggled up under the duvet, just stuck my foot 🦶 out the bed and it’s way too cold 🥶

Will need to get up soon as I want to steam clean my lounge carpet before the arrival of my new armchair on Monday, if I get it done early and pop the fire on it will be dry before lunchtime.

Can’t do anymore sewing until my fat quarters arrive so that’s on hold at the moment. So the rest of the day I’ll make up as I go along.

Enjoy your day

@Ohsewsimple Just had a look at Tencel fabric, i like the look of it and it looks very similar, the weave on the top i have is a lot finer

@Ohsewsimple it's very soft, drapey and not sweaty to wear, what's tender? it almost feels like a very soft brushed velvet but it's not that. Just wish it had a label

have you enjoyed making it.
I really have, it's nowhere near as hard as i though and it's one of those crafts that you can just get lost in, i forget about my worries and my anxiety disappears, so all good. I'm on the lookout for my next FPP project, i have something in mind.

@Diane for pinging me and getting me online yesterday,  :hug:

We always notice when a fellow TSP is AWOL. Going out with the dog is a good idea, some fresh air will make you feel better

Thankyou ladies

@Greybird I did try that and although it's faded it hasn't completely removed it.
@BrendaP It is brushed and doesn't crease easily, it's very soft
@Acorn It could be, maybe a brushed viscose as mentioned previously

@Celia I'm the same as you today, I have done a bit of sewing this morning but have come to a halt as i don't have the right piece of fabric. Think i'll also do a bit of online shopping, prefer it to going out if i'm honest then i'm going to tidy my fabric stash. Just though.i have two large bags of carrots to blanch and freeze so i suppose i'd better get that done.

I think while i'm waiting i'll look to see what type of back i'm going to do. Might do an envelope back rather than a zip closure  :thinking: Once the basket bit is complete i'll sandwich the front and quilt it.

I've finished the row 11 so that's all pressed, one more row left to do which contains the basket. I've looked through my stash and unbelievably found nothing suitable :faints:, i'm not going to ruin it by just using anything so i've ordered these fat quarters which will arrive tomorrow, i think they'll make a lovely basket.
