Today... / Re: Wednesday26/06
« Last post by Kenora on Yesterday at 23:48:39 »
Been a strange sort of day today - very cloudy and dull this morning, a bit of sun this afternoon, and then this funny thing that other people call heat this evening. :) It's now rather uncomfortable, even indoors, although it's only 23 degrees.

Have been indoors all day doing household accounts. Then this evening I had an email from the conveyancing solicitor dealing with the sale of Dad's house. I've already filled in about 15 double-sided pages of stupid questions, now the buyer's solicitor has evidently sent another 19 even dafter questions. Sorry, this should've been in the Rant Thread. :S :devil:

Fun with Fabric / Re: What is double gauze?
« Last post by Catllar on Yesterday at 23:27:57 »
I like double gauze. I've made a few things with the Japanese stuff. Not crinkly and super soft. Makes great loose pants. Not transparent. Did find it a bit thick when sewing burrito yoke, though.

I put an offer in on the bay for a black one and it has just been accepted!  ><  :vintage: Hope I haven't made a mistake  :ninja:

They were asking for 275 and I offered 240! Ooer!

I do seriously have one for sale.  I bought it a couple of years ago on a whim (I went to collect a Janome I'd bought on ebay from a collector of sewing machines, and ended up taking away the Janome and a Featherweight.)
I've used it only once since I bought it.
I can supply serial number and pictures if you're interested ...

Patchwork & Quilting ... Welcome to the Darkside / Time to waste?

I was wasting time playing games and came across this

Choose your fabrics, build your blocks and make a quilt. Take your time or play against the clock, didn't try the other options but I've been playing for over an hour!!!!!

Today... / Re: Wednesday26/06

@Ohsewsimple the physio gave me more exercises for my leg problem yesterday and suggested that the GP refer me for an xray but today the dentist has temporarily solved the problem by giving me paracetamol and naproxen to take after her surgery.  Perhaps doing the exercises while under the influence of these will help aid the healing though I'm not to lie flat for 24 hours so that's some out till Friday.

Thanks @Efemera although white is pretty I don't mind a black one but all the ones I see are too far away and the one I do like is collection only, they don't want to post  :(  :vintage:
