I am having trouble getting this one just right.
It is just perfect.

Am I glad I sewed up a prototype first or else all my embroidery might have been wrecked. I know where the problem is. I tried to make the zipper a feature and didn't properly check the width of the... Continue reading

The sewing table arrived this morning in the post and was quickly assembled. Now I have it installed in the tiny room, 2.75m x 3m and there is still space to move around. I will not have to disconnect my... Continue reading

I have done the drawing but I will have to make up a prototype to see it this will work. I hope it does because this is what I want to use to make up the rest of the TAST... Continue reading

I am looking forward to it’s arrival. As it is coming by post, and our postal service isn’t very good just at the moment, I will be interested to see how low it takes.
It always marks the end of the summer holidays and everyone takes the time to celebrate.

I think that considering the amount of change that I have had to deal with I am travelling quite well. I took a bit of a knock when I was told my car was being written off. But I’m back up again and dealing with it. I thought that I would be alone to handle my husbands surgery but my daughter is arriving home this week end to be with me. So onwards and forwards.

After years of teaching kids how to sew I know that I can make clothes. This is sometimes a bit of a disadvantage. I go into a shop and see a pair of slacks costing over $100 and I immediately... Continue reading

We are experiencing one of the hottest summers on record. Every day the temperature is up in the mid to high 30's C but it is the humidly that does the damage. We have one small air-conditioner in the bedroom... Continue reading

I did a number of unsatisfactory drawings this week so I have selected on the one that I think could possibly have some potential as a quilt design. We will see. Now I remember why I kept puting those drawing... Continue reading
