Well done for sticking with it, looking good.

It only gives me 8 free videos  the rest are all subscribe in the sewing section - I don't think so. I too will resort to the good old fashioned way - a book.

I really like that, it's so spring-like and fresh, full of joy and hope. Well done.

Good late- afternoon, lovely and sunny with a cool breeze. Two loads of washing dried outside, wonderful.
Well the day started with a walk and a trip to the local butcher, DS gave me special dispensation to call at the butchers as he operates a one in/ one out policy with a barrier on the pavement.
Next a call to a friend -80th birthday, we would normally go out for coffee but --------, then a call to another friend. Then DD phoned - oh dear, :'( she has had to have one of her dogs put to sleep, he was a lovely animal, so gentle and he was a rescue dog, she has had him for at least 10 years and to be fair he was over 16 years old. The littlies are beside themselves, behaviour  has plummeted and daddy is still self isolating - not great. Next she phoned because the one dog she has left (this time last year she had 3) is so small that she is cold in the dog bed - have I got anything to make a bed out of util she can get something? Well we all know that things 'come in useful' so she came to collect - 1 piece of fleece, some foam, some poly wadding , 2 old cardigans and a sewing machine. I await the photo.
I've been out  for a ride on the bike - first time in 2 years, it nearly killed me, I don't know about coronavirus but trying to stay healthy isn't good for me either ;)

Happy birthday @Kwaaked

Good afternoon, sunny with a chilly wind. DS deliverd our paper this morning, he is definately of the opinion that we are not going in a shop. We went for a walk - dropped prescription request in at the docs, now does that count as 1) exercise or 2) getting medication. However we have been for a walk this afternoon to post birthday cards (one was through the letter box) so either that counts as exercise or a slapped wrist for going out twice. We saw a policeman on a quad bike - now thats a first.
Off to sew I think.

Yes @Ohsewsimple I had exactly the same experience, misleading to say that all tutorials are free.

Oooh that is nice but I don't think I will be doing as I have loads of sewing on the go. Keep up the good work @Iminei.

Good afternoon - sun is trying to shine - yay.
DS came this morning with our shopping after taking his sister her order, bless him. He got to the 'Asdas' at 8 am and had to queue but he was able to get almost everything for the three families.
We've been for a walk and I've been on the Wii and then made chicken soup 9from a carcass) for lunch.
This afternoon - back to the garret as OH calls my sewing room I think.
Stay well.

Oooh @Sandra , they are lovely and well done to DD - what's next on the 'to do' list?
Sashiko is on mine  as well as a dozen other things :|

@maliw, is this an entry post for the contest? If so, could you please indicate it and/or use them template on the first post of this thread.
Sorry @Manuela , have amended, hope this is ok.

Maliw's entry

What is it and for whom
These items are for babies born alseep

Patterns used

The patterns are all from Pinterest or free drawn

A short description on how you made it/problems overcome/etc

 All items have been made from one deconstructed wedding dress.The deconstruction, washing etc takes longer than the sewing! Much of the fabric has originally been cut on the cross which means that there is a lot wasted and finding the straight grain can be tricky.Lining from the dress is just as important as the main fabric as this gives a soft inside to the items as the skin of the "angels" is very fragile. Bits of leftover fabric are used to make the embellishments where possible and all decorations from the dress are used as appropriate.
 The hearts are given to the parents as a keepsake if they want one.
