Good that it is a lot of dark blue and white. Apparently babies appreciate contrast before they do colours, so he should find it fascinating.

@UttaRetch  Ditto big breasts. Those mega implant people are mad.

Looks like a seascape through a window already.

I would imagine that cyclists are prone to rounded backs, looking at the way they are on the bike. Look at the armhole seam at the back.  Those shirts definitely look as good, or better, than bought ones already.
(if you make too many adjustments, they get more and more picky - ask anyone here!)

Technical Help / Re: Shirts

@Mocarroll  I felt the same about Coffin's book, but if I pick up one or two techniques from a book, I think it was a cheap lesson.  Browsing through one of my books helps me get into the sewing groove anyway.

Just voted on these.  I was going to enter with a recover of my tatty Poang chair.  I have some lovely quilted fabric for a cover, but could not find it in time.  In fact, I still can't find it.  How can 2metres of nice thick quilted furnishing fabric hide?

A Good Yarn / Re: Anyone got a Knitmaster 600/700?

@Celia 
"I am trying to find a place to put one of my knitting machines up, I still have way too many and need to get rib of one or 2 "  A genuine Freudian slip?
(I posted this earlier and somehow it ended up in the thread from the newbie in Huddersfield.  How did that happen?  Wonder if I started from the Recent Posts and it just got stuck onto the last one.  Ah well.)

Hi, I'm new... / Re: Greetings from Huddersfield
« on: September 06, 2020, 12:49:45 PM »
Hi there, I grew up in Huddersfield!   There is a sewing machine shop in one of the arcades.  I expect all the fabric and wool places have shut up shop.  Might still be a bit of stuff in the market.  You are going to love it here.

Today, I have vacuumed the motorhome (approx 5 minute job, including time taken to take vacuum out and back), and made a poodle fabric face mask for the lady at the pet food shop along the lane.

That's it.  Don't care either  :dance:
Actually, not true. She also helped me earlier today.

Adding Zing & Bling / Re: digitiser jr on win 10
« on: September 03, 2020, 10:44:46 AM »
@fajita  It is for Janome, not Brother, glad yours works well! The problem I have is the security dongle I think.
@Iminei I don't like win10 nearly as much as win 7, I find it a clunky interface and not as intuitive. If it wasn't for the internet, I would have kept the old system. 
@Bodgeitandscarper I found the first link and was struggling with it.  The second one looks to be what I need but I am waiting for someone to hold my hand while I try it.  Will report back when I do.  Thanks a lot.   :loveit:

Thank you all for thinking. Yes, it is Janome Digitiser Jr, version 3 which ran beautifully on Win7 and has been asked to go to Win10  (OH says Win 7 is not secure on the internet so he bought me a new Win 10 machine. He wants to upgrade the old one to 10 as well, so it will be useful) When I run the DVD  I get an error code about a HASP file. And it wants an updated dongle.  I thought that anyone else who had the software would recognise the question!
@wrenkins, the dvd might well end up out of the window, but I will keep the Janome 350e.

Has anyone got v3 to work with win 10?  If so, how?

@UttaRetch  is the CH new or did you inherit it? The installer told me they replace the batteries in the thermostat every year

@UttaRetch My 'receiver' has a button for manual. does yours?  I assume if I press it, the CH comes on but I haven't tried it yet. The  instructions for this new boiler are not very user friendly.
