Good afternoon from sunny but chilly Wirral. Washing is on the line.
Hope you have heard from the doc @Stitches  and all is ok.
This morning I made a honey and ginger cake and then spent the rest of the time deconstructing a wedding dress and removing all the beading so I am now covered in threads. Hansel and Gretel eat your heart out, I can easily find my way back to the sewing room. White thread on a green carpet isn't  a great look when OH has just hoovered :laughing:

Wow, thats great.

Thank you for all your nice comments. The quilt was done to match bedroom wallpaper which is peachy/pink, cream and grey and a coppery line, one wall and the carpet are navy blue. It is quilted with a copper coloured thread on the top. When DS saw the quilt his comment was :- " very nice, I think we will redecorate" He was joking fortunately.

Here we hope, is the latest offering from chez maliw.   [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

This is the last quilt for grand offsprung.

Good late afternoon. Well at last a day of something different:-
a 3 mile walk to deliver a card to DD and DSiL - wedding anniversary
lunch out with friends, glorious weather so we were outside. One of my friends has given me her wedding dress (50+ years old) for for Angel baby outfits so that is now washed and outside drying on the line. :)
babysit tonight for DD, they are going out for a meal
Yeh some normality at last.

Happy birthday  :toast: :cake: :flower:

I'm undecided still, the 2 hour drive there and back and stupid amount to park don't inspire me this year and as I'm not quilting as much at the moment ---------. Will have to speak to my friend and see if she is interested.

Thought it was just me and the broadband.

Fun with Fabric / Re: Jacquard/Brocade suggestions Men's Jacket??

Ooooh Bombay Stores, I've been there a few times many years ago, talk about a kid in a sweet shop. I got some lovely shoes there and they were really cheap - prices have increased a lot since then. Fabric for DD bridesmaid dresses and all the mens waistcoats came from there. Hope they have what you want/need.

For a first attempt that looks really good. Don't forget only you know where the mistakes might be but once it's in use a lot of things disappear into the quilt. Keep up the good work. :thumbsup:

 :hug: :hug: @Sandra, your dad will feel guilty even though he knows deep down that he probably can't do any more. Once he is rested he will probably feel even worse but sadly I think that residential care becomes inevitable in most cases.
You will be there for him and your mum, please don't feel guilty, look after yourselves, your mum will be looked after. You all matter as well as your mum.

Lilya's 8th birthday today, but at least it isn't a lockdown birthday like last year.  A Teepee (sp?) in the garden for 7 friends - given the weather it's probably wise.  The children are only allowed in the house to use the toilet...

Pic is Lilya's birthday bunting - with added jewels! Rough Pics, sorry.


Oh my word where do the years go? I remember her being born. We were in the 'other place' then.

In the wardrobe / Re: rotary cutter

Scissors for adult clothes as I don't have a big enough cutting mat but I do use a rotary cutter - 28mm for my Angel baby stuff as I find it easier than scissors for some reason - and quicker.
