If we did nobody would ever join us...  :devil:

In that case you must move onto the dining table immediately!

Today... One thread per day / Re: Wednesday 30th September

The rain is torrential here - running down the conservatory windows, trundling along the road, flash flood type torrential.

I should be in a Teams meeting, but haven't received the invitation.

I had (vaguely) thought of starting to clear the polytunnel today.  I probably wouldn't have got round to it, but definitely not in this!

I have a pile of FQs that need to be sorted into sets of 3 for littlest goddaughter's quilt, but I'm not really sure enough of where I'm going...  -<

I am going to make a chicken pie and tackle the ironing pile though.  Definitely.  Any moment now.

But it's when you're not sewing that you can get everything prepared and ready for when you are sewing!   ;)

Very nice!

When I was a small child my Mum did all the ironing on the kitchen table with a pile of sheets and blankets to provide the surface.  I can only imagine how my back would scream if I did that! 

However, being able to do the pressing on a table when making quilt block is really useful - a number of us made hard pressing boards for just that purpose recently.  This would be even easier!

There is probably something that allows you to choose how big the photo will be, but I'm a dunce when it comes to phones - there may be other people who can help though.   :)

@CraftyIrish Could you not add such enormous images please!  Those are 4,032 pixels wide - the forum only displays up to 900 pixels, so there is no benefit to a larger image, but they take up an awful lot of space on the server and make the forum slower to load.

There's an excellent tutorial on using lunapic to reduce the size of your photos here.

Thanks!   :)

Sorted.   :D

I have deleted your post from the database @Lilian - if you'd like to repost it I'm sure it will be fine!

And it's back!   :D

Yes, I've tried the same.  Clearly there is something problematic in that post - there is an erro registered in the error log, but it is described as 'undefined'.  I am trying to get some advice on removing it directly from the database.

I have absolutely no idea what has happened there.  However, if you go to a previous page in the thread  - this is the link to page 8 - it appears to be fine.  That takes us back to September 24th and includes BrendaP's dress and leggings.

I've locked the thread (for what that's worth) and suggest you start a second thread and ask anyone who posted anything important to repost it.

I will have a look and see if I can resurrect page 9, but I really can't make any promises.

I bought a large men's linen shirt for £7 in the last M&S sale, but other than taking the sleeves off and re-making it so that it fits me (which doesn't qualify, and would also be very boring) I have no ideas whatsoever.   -<
