Do you use OneDrive, DropBox or something similar @Catllar ?  I transfer stuff between my Windows laptop and Android tablet and phone that way.

What a shame about that lovely wrap!  Could you put (big!) darts in from the shoulders to the neck?

She looks wonderful, but she does also look slightly annoyed with you!

Very nice! 

My embroidery machine won't take any bobbins other than its own, so pre-wound bobbins are not a possibility for me.

I would go with grey, but the yellow is very striking.

Much better weather today - I can just about see the sea.

I have already stripped the bed, got the washing on and tidied up the geraniums in the porch and conservatory - removed dead leaves and flowers, watered and hoovered around the pots - so I feel quite virtuous.  I can't get on with the littlest goddaughter's quilt until more fabric arrived, so I have a pattern to stick together and then, hopefully start at least cutting out. 

We're going to the littlest goddaughter's birthday party tomorrow - her birthday was postponed from December 28th in the hope that we would be able to attend within a few weeks, but as that is clearly not happening we are having a Teams party instead, so we are finally going to let her be two.  Reluctantly, because she is such a lovely baby!

I was cutting the sashing and border for littlest goddaughter's quilt.  I sensibly cut the longest, widest strips first - for the border - and put them on one side.

I have now done all the sashing, and the patterned border, so I reached for the pieces I had set aside.  Yes they were there - I bet you thought I was going to say they'd disappeared!  However, I found that I had cut two of them instead of four, and what's left over of then fabric can't reasonably be made to work.   :facepalm:  Now I have to wait for another 1.5m to be delivered before I can get on with it.  Aaargh!

@Kenora Don't you dare stay away.  You're welcome here however you're feeling, and please give us the chance to offer these  :hug: even if they don't have great practical value.

 :grouphug: for everyone.

It's definitely Thursday - I asked my computer!   ;)  I have edited the title.

Wind and rain here, but the fog has receded a bit from yesterday.  Actually it might well be low cloud - not that it makes much difference.

I really must find some suitable fabric for the backing of littlest goddaughter's quilt.  I've found some that will be fine, but I wanted something more interesting.  But not too interesting...   :thinking:

Yes - if someone has coughed or sneezed on you you definitely need to wash it (and yourself) very thoroughly!
