Took 2 year old GS to Bekonscot model village. He loves it as there are also model trains. I took him to the loo & he was concerned that I don't have a willy. When we came out he rushed over to DH & asked, very loudly 'Grandy, did you know Granma doesn't have a willy'? Various people trying very hard to keep straight faces as DH replied 'really? I wonder where it's gone'!

Look at Ellie and Mac, Brindille & Twig, Made by Jack's Mum, (Beachcomber gets lots of good reviews) Life Sew Savory. There are lots of others -ive used a free DIBY Club t shirt, it's well draughted. These tend to go from 6 months to 14 or so, simple designs ideal for stretch fabric. Some are free, some on sale for $1and some are around £10.

Earlier this year I was moaning about the squirrels taking a bite out of every raspberry within reach. I don't mind them having a few, just eat the whole thing! Course, they might have been punishing me for the net over the strawberries. That foiled the little b*****s this year.

@Greybird I don't think it was me - long time since I made my MOB jacket.

It's lovely. You've captured the shape of the tree well, & I agree that the empty background echoes the mood of lockdown. The rainbow will remind you too - it's suddenly on everything but I suppose will dwindle.

@RJR_38 @Renegade Sewist thanks for details of Cricut machines. I think I might put one on my Christmas list .....

Lovely job. I think it would be fine to have a contrast placket if you wanted to.

@Sewingsue look at Boob or Bust (aka BOB) on Facebook. There's a size calculator & explanations of the way breast tissue can migrate to armpits (& even to your back). I went from 38 C which were uncomfortable to 34 E which I can get very affordably from Asda. According to BOB I should be 32G. After a while wearing the new size, breast tissue migrates again, to where it belongs, and ridges of 'fat' - really breast tissue - no longer bulge over straps at the back. I should really try a 32 band again but they're not available in cheap shops.

Congratulations @Manuela. A well deserved win. They were all good entries, it was difficult to choose.

@wrenkins thanks. That would stop the thread rubbing the machine casing.

@Ploshkin mine also creeps - until it jams against the box holding the embroidery unit. Only a problem once, when it suddenly accelerated after I took my foot off. On a tricky seam which then had to be unpicked.
