Weather same.

I think I have found my replacement Android phone and will be legging it over to John Lewis, Westfield Stratford this morning.  Good spec, but it doesn't cost a arm and a leg.  Report back later.

Another cold morning, but no overnight frost.

Driving home yesterday, I discovered that the right indicators have stopped working.  :S  I shall nip down to the nearest MOT station, but I suspect I will have to take the wretched car to a Skoda dealer.  :(

It's the start of the week and only a month to Christmas.  There, I've said it.  0_0

A grey morning, but doesn't seem particularly cold.

I am in the final planning stage of the kitchen refurbishment and have a quote from my builder - higher than I would like considering the rest of the flat also needs upgrading.  Having spent ages looking at replacement doors, I discovered last night that it is a Moben kitchen.  :S  I'll go online to see what they have.

Camp shirt plus dress.  Not my thing, but somebody will like them.

The Alcott.  I like the fabric of Jenny's and I have a very similar ready to wear dress that is falling apart.

Tech Know How / Ignore boards options
« on: November 17, 2019, 13:57:11 PM »
I don't know whether I am coming or going.  Do I check or uncheck the boxes of the boards I want to ignore, AND is doing the parent board enough or do I also have to deal with the child boards?  Thanks, people.

Come on people, 'up and at em'.  Seriously I can't believe nobody has started 'Today' yet.

I was in WH Smith's earlier today and spotted these:

Both of them have pull out pattern sheets.

Patterns Discussion / McCall's sale
« on: October 22, 2019, 14:42:25 PM »
My local pattern shop has a 40% sale on McCall's patterns.  I don't how long it's been going on, but I bagged

to add to the pile of 'probably will never make'.  I must stop buying patterns.  -<

Patterns Discussion / New Simplicity patterns
« on: October 15, 2019, 09:19:59 AM »
I've not sewn any Simplicity and I see nothing here to make me change my mind.

CoolCrafting, stand J81, has a small selection of StyleArc patterns.  Might be of interest to some.

Patterns Discussion / Burda 2019 Autumn/Winter patterns

See them here.   There is quite a lot that I actully like, but 'Satan's own pattern' has put me off Burda for life.
