It's still safe and supported until Jan 2020, the same as W7. Some sites run slow with it though.

9 hours of Quilting later ...


Did we decide what to do with the coloured halves of the HST's ??  Im a bit worried about them not being quilted when it comes to being washed.

When I put mine on I got DH to stretch and mould it round my bumps! I don’t use it for the finer fitting adjustments but it gives a good idea of general fit and stuff just lives on it till it’s finished.

I've got a beautiful piece of cobalt blue silk charmeuse that I've had for absolutely years that I might like to sew. I've already set aside this Simplicity pattern for it, but I wanted to work out how to make the shape less boxy because I don't really suit straight square garments. Not sure I would want fisheye darts though, so maybe just a contoured side seam or seeing if I can add a side dart somehow (depends how deep the grown-on sleeve goes).

Like the last two, I'll follow along just don't know if I will enter.

I have a couple of things I am doing in July that is blue...but it's not surprising since one of my primary wardrobe colors is navy.

One is the rose jacket I posted about earlier from the runway.  I am showing a couple of the girls from the summer camp how to take an idea from draping to finished garment and several different techniques.  The other is a guipure lace skirt (not real's just corded) and I have all the stuff for a navy one coming today, to show that technique.  I have enough for 2 black ones...and I'll make them on my own time in a color underlay and a black one to show many patterns different looks type thing.  (While typing it just got delivered.)  I got a few more if I have time/they all come on all the days.

I use navy for things like this because with all the handling of the fabric by other people, it shows dirt far less then colors do, easier to see the techniques then black and since I am making clothing for me...I wear navy.
