I feel like teleported back to East Germany. The list of forbidden things gets longer and longer....
Certain 8-character slogans
The ‘Glory to Hong Kong’ hymn and ‘Do you hear the people sing from Les Miserables
Library books ‘under review’ is the latest, we’ll see what will get ‘outlawed’ next week.

Libraries pull off some books by political figures

I cleaned out my social media back after the Umbrella movement in 2016 (you can’t find yellow umbrellas here since 2015).... many are doing that now. Cameras being installed in classrooms to monitor teachers was suggested yesterday  :scream:

A very well made jacket, and I’m impressed with your handwork on the lining.  Very neat and adds a very luxurious finish.

Anniversary is tomorrow so everyone is supposed to be outside giving a round of applause at 5 pm

Still no rain here, butts are still not full (sigh)

So today I am going to sort out fabric and maybe have a go at a BOM

Went for a quick shop early this morning and couldn't believe the length of queues outside nearly all the local barbers.  I was told by the fishmonger that people had started queueing before 7.00 a.m.

Hello again Effie, just to say that this package has arrived safely this morning and again is beautiful - thank you so much.  Again I will have to play with draping this on my stand to help me decide what to make with this.  I really do appreciate your fabrics - you obviously have a source that we southerners to not have the opportunity to visit.

Good morning everyone, I have been awake since 5 o’clock and still cant seem to get going, ARgggH

Does anyone now who is a good courier company to use for sending a sewing machine?

I have my sewing room back for a day, my Son doesn’t need it today so you never know some sewing might be in my future

@Celia when I bought my Babylock from Mamashep I used UPS. They weren’t the cheapest but they would insure sewing machines.

The machine was well packed to start with and marked as fragile. It arrived safely.

I'm a bit turn about that machine @Gernella -

Actually I had a laugh because I'm a bit like myself when I'm on a hunt, switching from one idea to another.  Although when I stick I don't dither.
