Thanks @Elnnina , fortunately for me my machine is very clever and only lets me do straight stitches when the straight stitch plate is on.  Mind you I have cursed it before when I tried to stitch a buttonhole and it refused because the wrong stitch plate was on.

I saw it @SkoutSews , it was absolutely fascinating.  The Frenchman must have had a thing about incredibly long samplers.

Thanks for that @Elnnina, I have a straight stitch plate for my machine but wouldn’t have thought to use it.

I was going to cut it out today but the sunshine was too good to miss.

Many congratulations @charlotte, we do love a wedding here :D

At least you can plan your dress now, even if others things are on hold.

I’ve just ordered 968 in both the upholstery weight and a 250m reel of Sew-all.

I know people use two threads at once but don’t think I’ll have much chance of threading a needle with two threads but will have a go.

Sewmuchmore’s stitch looks good when I gave it a try, now all I’ve got to do is cut the damn thing out.  0_0

I’m about to cut out a denim pinafore dress and want to top stitch it in gold/yellow.

There is no thread in the stash that is suitable and as I am self isolating it will have to be bought over t’interweb.

Has anybody got any that they could check the number of.  I usually use Gutermann thread but anything I can get on line would be fine.

Most satisfying job of the day so far, clearing the paper jam in my shredder.

Careful @Bodgeitandscarper , it was thinking about cleaning windows that sent me into my current paralysis.

Windows are my worst nightmare. Some people seem to have the knack, I don’t. Mine usually look worse when I’ve done them than before, I can never get them streak free.
