Today... / Re: Saturday 21st April

Morning Lolli and Lynne. Oh Lolli, I've had neighbors like that in the past.

The 2 story house with large swimming pool behind us seems to be party central for the many owners and renters over the last 40 years. The current owner makes all the noise stop at 10 PM. A couple of renters over the years would actually allow their guests to throw beer bottles over the fence. Then there's the fellow who had his bachelor party in the jacuzzi, complete with stripper at 3 AM. Had he told us it would have been fine. Instead we called the police  and he figured it was us. When the cops left he started hurling bricks, bottles, baseballs at the bedroom window. Then broke down the 6 foot tall wood fence. Surprised she still married him, what with him spending the night in jail.  :P Sorry you've had to put up with it tonight.

Lynne, late night sews can be so peaceful. Most of the distractions of the day are over or asleep in another room.  ;)

I've just sat down to my supper. I made a Swiss cheeseburger with ground sirloin. Yum.

I hope you all have a lovely Saturday.

Yes it's 2am and I've just been woken up by my nightmare neighbour  :angry:  It's been quiet all evening, she's come back from somewhere with a few of her cronies, music on loud being very rowdy. OH due home from work any minute, and I expect he will call the police this time. He warned her last weekend that she's had her last warning.
I'm not going to be able to get back to sleep now, great start to the weekend!

I'll do some Googling and try to find shops within my area that have it so I can try it out.
A book will no doubt be a good investment, I'll have a look for one of those too.

Thanks @Elnnina

Oh thanks for letting us know! We thought it was just an hour or two in our AM.

It might have been intermittent. I figured you all might have some scheduled maintenance/updates going on during the middle of the night your time. I last checked it about 1 AM my time. And probably once every hour or so during the evening, just to see if it was back up.

Welcome to The Dark Side / Re: The Great Cushion Cover Swap 2018

I'll try to get mine in the post early next week...although I am deeply deeply disturbed by both the gorgeousness of the one I receved [yes there will be pics, give me  a break] and the gorgeousness of what everyone else is getting.
Aargh
The dark side will quickly belch me back out [thank gawd] when this is seen.  You guys inhabit a different world where soft furnishings are lavished with time and affection

They just don't matter that much to me...wah [not to say I'm not stroking my lovely new prize every time I pass it [it's ensconced on a chairback right now as it needs a luxurious new filling, not the mangled strangled lumps that pass for cushions hereabouts]]

HOW DO YOU ALL SEW SUCH PERFECT STRAIGHT LINES AND RIGHT ANGLES?

Aliens.  It's the only answer :S :S :S

Don't worry, mine is still in flat form as I'm too scared to try haha. Sunday morning with some tea to help me get started, G&T to help me finish!

I have Elnnina's pictures of her quillow.

The first shows the gorgeous poppy front:

The back with the pocket showing (the pocket gets turned inside out, so the inside of the pocket is decorative):

The quillow folded up ready to turn the pocket inside out around it:

The final quillow as a cushion:
