and it's a cold one.

I should have gone to the funeral of a childhood friend's mother, but the number of mourners have been reduced to the bare minimum.  The service is being streamed, so I will log in later on today.  However, it's not the same as attending in person.

The only pattern that calls to me is

The stretch needle (see attachment) is not working.  Should I try a different stitch, another type of needle or something else?

Fun with Fabric / Velour fabric
« on: September 19, 2020, 15:07:23 PM »
I found this

lovely velour for £3 per yard or £3.30 per metre - I bought in yards since the pattern fabric requirements is expressed that way.  The red is actually cerise and I am going to make view C of

I asked for six yards, but I think the seller gave me the wrong end as I have a lot of fabric.
