I wondered if anyone has used this product and if you would recommend it.  I watched a lady using it to make templates for quilting designs.

A very happy birthday to


We hope you have a wonderful day.

Wouldn't we all like to see SunnySkies today?

Last year, I had a disaster.  To rectify it, I need some white fabric with a black pattern.  I have spots but can't find anything else on line.

Please does anyone have any that they would be prepared to sell to me?  I need a variety so anything bigger than 5" square would be great.

Please excuse this terrible photo.  No one else is up yet so I had to take it myself.

It has a pretty edge.

A Good Yarn / Exotic Burst Cowl by Dolly Bhardwaj

My mum asked me to get this pattern for her from Ravelry and when I saw it, I thought I’d have a go.  It is a good way to use up oddments of wool.  I think I’ve got enough for 50 cowls.

Plenty of ends to sew in.   :scream:

I washed DS1's quilt with a gazillion colour catchers.  One of the fabrics has turned pink wherever it occurs in the quilt.  Help! What do I do?

Patchwork & Quilting ... Welcome to the Darkside / WIP storage
« on: August 29, 2020, 12:20:27 PM »
I have several many WIP (works in progress) in bags for life (handy for taking to sewing group/class), zippy wallets and carrier bags.  They take up most of the floor space in my sewing space. 

I wondered if you could advise me of a better way to store them. I’m wondering about plastic project boxes.

I am using this fabric as the background for the BOM but DD likes it and wants it to be included in the quilt that I am going to make for her when (if) I finish this one.  Please does anyone have any that they would be prepared to sell, as I am unable to find it online?

TIA   :gin:
