That is gorgeous, love your fabric choice.

Have you decided on a layout yet?  I bet you can do a variety of things with that block.

@Iminei have you stopped stroking the box yet? I hope you didn’t lift it onto that table all by yourself.

Elvis has left the building!

Who hoo!!

That’s fab news Imi, if saying goodbye to Elvis can ever be good. Which advertising worked?

Oh I do like that fabric.

I would have thought if you take it steadily it should zig zag fine.

Wanders off to make evening meal chanting ‘I must not look at the website, I must not look at the website’

Gumtree may be worth a try Imi.  It’s selling rather than auction and no fees.

That’s beautiful and very classy.

@Sewingsue I used UPS when I bought my Babylock Evolve from Mamashep.

It wasn’t the cheapest option but they didn’t have sewing machines listed in the goods they wouldn’t insure.

Their service was excellent and I would use them again.

Less than £50 from Scotland to N Yorks.

What lovely fabric @snoozi soozi   

You can’t beat a new cushion cover for a quick update.

Imi how many places have you advertised Elvis? TSP is a fairly small pool. Just because no one on here is in a position to buy it doesn’t mean it won’t sell.

Are you on any FB groups for machine embroidery, that might give you a wider range.

@Goth Gardiner do you have much luck with sweet potatoes?  We are contemplating trying them next year but fear North Yorkshire might be too cold.

Lazy day here as I am full of cold, so final MotoGP of the year it is.

Will even have to miss quiz night at our local pub.

@wrenkins handsome half nekid cowboys sound interesting .

Can we have a photo before you gift them.  :D

Patchwork & Quilting ... Welcome to the Darkside / Re: Antique quilts

@Lisalou1965 those are really beautiful.  You are so lucky.

 To me this is patchwork at its purest . It’s original function was to make use of the smallest of scraps. When I make a quilt I always try to incorporate a small piece of fabric that was bought before I planned the quilt. A token gesture I know but it makes me smile if I can manage it.

Ooh @Iminei thats exciting ( no I don’t want to start embroidery thank you). But what on earth are you going to call the upgrade?

How can you have anything more exciting than an Elvis?
