5 on the go at one @Lowena?  Good lord you'll be using green next.

And here's me sticking to your mantra of not starting anything til I've completely finished a project.

Probably doing us both good 0_0

When DD and I go to the Leeds one we take a short cut to the cafe, missing out all the room displays. We then carry on to the homewares  dept and do fabrics and soft furnishings.

We rarely by anything big, our goal is usually the smaller stuff anyway.

Saves lots of stress.

Happy Birthday @Tiggy

I saw this & I thought you may be interested! / Re: Bluprint Sale

I succumbed to the sale sometime in Dec and got 12 months membership.

I used to watch a lot of Craftsy years ago but didn’t bother when it stopped working on my Kindle.

I’ve watched lots Of Bluprint recently on the iPad and have been pleasantly surprised, a lot of it is very useful. Trying to learn Portuguese knitting now.

I’ve used leather for the soles. My last pair were made using the rough side of the leather which came from the back of a sofa that was being scrapped.

A very Happy Birthday to you both.

@justpottering hope you don’t have to do any baking today.

When you say 'support', do you mean 'encouragement'?   ;)

@Acorn I’d be surprised if you needed encouragement  :D but far be it from me to stifle anybody’s urges. I’m going to buy vicariously through you lot. Admire everybody’s purchases then go and root through what I already have. I keep finding things I have no recollection of buying.  :S

Happy Birthday to you both.

@JillH I hope Rob continues to improve and 2020 brings you peace.

I was doing reasonably well with last year’s challenge until I had a bit of a December buying frenzy.

Aiming not to buy anything for a few months (We’ll see how long that lasts!) so am just going to record fabric used.

Otherwise I may have to start a support group for fabric addicts,  any joiners? :ninja:

Happy New Year everyone. 

It’s a lovely day here so let’s hope that bodes well for 2020.

We went out last night with every intention of being home before midnight but got sidetracked  ;)

Today we have the smallest grandchild but mercifully she is having a good nap.

When she has been picked up I’m going up to my sewing room to have a tidy up and sort out the first project of 2020 :D

Hi and welcome from me too.

Fun with Fabric / Re: Sewing with Silk Fabric - tips please

Can I piggy back as well because I’m looking for silk organza, nothing fancy.

I just want to have a pressing cloth and have been reading about  a method of making a pattern from an existing garment using a frixion pen and a piece of silk.

Why lots of sites seem to think silk organza is made of polyester is beyond me.

@Iminei fascinators are a fab idea. Imagine a flock of butterflies nodding on the head of someone going to Ladies Day.

Mind you my SILs grandma had the best idea. She said she wasn’t going to wear a hat at their wedding, she was going to wear a tantiliser.

Every year I promise I will make one for the following year.  If I ever do it will not be as classy as that one.
