House Beautiful / Re: How is cushion piping made?
« on: Today at 19:31:10 »
I agree that something easier than a piped cushion would be a better place to start - perhaps a plain cushion cover with a simple envelope opening.
For attaching piping I always use a zipper foot.  It had never occurred to me to purchase a piping foot.

@Gernella if you've had indigestion for months it's best to get checked by your GP x

That's a great job @Acorn and I like your wallpaper pattern: it's lovely and fresh.  I like wallpapering too.  We have a half newel like yours but the bit at the top can be removed (intentionally), so a lot easier to paper around.

@Ploshkin I'm knitting The Essential Cable socks which is a free downloadable pattern on LoveCrafts.  It's all in stocking stitch apart from a single cable, knit across 6 stitches, down the outside.  I knit these on circular needles. 

Thank you for the link @sewmuchmore. Like @Ellabella I've always stuck pdfs together myself but recently decided enough was enough. I used Fabric Godmother for the first time following a TSP recommendation and was happy with the quality of paper, printing and service. I will look at some of the suggestions on the link the next time I need some printing though.

@Starryfish three mammograms in as many weeks must have been so uncomfortable without the added biopsies. I hope all will be well. Be gentle with yourself x

I had to wait for a whole month when I got my current Pfaff as it was a Christmas present and I wasn't allowed to open it.
I received a Brother V3 for my birthday last year and that did have to be opened as it arrived in a mahoosive box and would have just been in the way if left :D

They look like lovely machines and so great that the 127 has been passed down through your DH's family. Enjoy your restoration project.

@Lemon Syllabub I do hope yours gets delivered soon!  It's horrible when it starts to get low and there's no delivery in sight.  We had our tank filled up about 4 weeks ago and whereas normally a delivery is made within 3 to 4 days this one was 7 days after I ordered; which was absolutely fine but I think just a reflection of everything else that is currently happening nationwide.

@Lemon Syllabub do you order via an online company or the supplier direct?  I used to order online but found it was more cost effective to get an online quote and then phone local suppliers for a better deal (it's all expensive either way :()  I also don't get billed until a few days after the delivery.
