I didn't realise until I looked at the invoice that there are different ones for different machines, probably due to the size of bobbins or are some feet larger?  Anyway since I no longer have the machine this is going.  I was never really impressed with it, especially when I have now seen the lovely black case on Quilt Direct, which costs considerably more so glad I didn't see it before.

So I am looking for £20 including postage

The first one I received I had to sent back as there was a piece off the doors.  The second one has been okay but the left door never seemed to sit properly shut.  I discovered today that if you push the middle separating piece slightly it shuts.

 I think it was designed to look to look pretty and too much lightweight plastic is never a good thing.  The only thing I did buy when I bought was an extra bracket for the feet, which are adjustable.

I'm not trying to put you off, just to be aware.  Maybe I'm highly critical as Pfaff have nice little slots for your feet included with the machines.

Fun with Fabric / Clothspot

I saw  some very nice jersey that I've had before on the weekly email.  Trouble is I can't seem to  get further than the basket.  Can't get PayPal to work and it keeps throwing my debit card out with wrong numbers, even if right.  Has anybody else been there to buy this morning?  Alice  says it's working there end and orders going through okay, so put my order on one side and going to send me a link on Monday.

I even changed browsers to the MS one which I hate, but still no luck.

Purchased from Frank Nutt but never used other than open the box and look inside.  This is a stock photograph

Compatible with:

Bernina 125, 125S, 210, 215, 220 - Maybe more but you would have to contact Frank Nutts and fill in the request form on the page advertising the foot.

£45 including postage with full insurance

I've just boobed, I had this pattern saved, even though I have another pattern very similar that I've done and liked.  Anyway saw it around £2.09 subject to dollar exchange rate.  Bought, went to download and no AO size so I am stuck with A4.  I did say I would never go there, even worse than the Darkside for me. :S

I can see it never getting done although I do like the sleeves, I could use these.

In the wardrobe / Fitting issues

My gradual loss of weight  (over 4 years ) meant that the beginning of last year saw quite a bit of alterations in progress on the waist and hips.

This year the penny has dropped that I should have taken the hem up at well.  I normally wear skirts on or above the knee with the odd lapse if the fabric seems too nice/pretty to cut a short hem.  I couldn't understand why they suddenly seemed longer than they did before but decided to put it down to my previous rather generous stomach and hips pulling the hem up.

I wouldn't mind but I hate having to do alterations, there is absolutely no fun in it :S

These are gorgeous, but for me a bit too rich.  I think I'll stick to the spanners and the reserves, hammer, old laptop battery and the stapler as a last resort.

Nice rippers as well, but too posh to lose.
