Eileen, do you like hand sewing? ( Or have a very posh embroidery machine?)

I've seen a large tablecloth where all the guests signed around the borders and it was then embroidered over the ink.

It was an American family and it was brought out every Thanksgiving and people signed again. Some years there were additions, some years it was the last time someone would get to be with the family. Each year in a different colour thread.

Something for them to keep for years and years.

Thank you Margaret,

Hubby had to work away for a couple of days, "Oh dear what a pity", I still need to sort out the dining room to have tea this evening... although I have a sewing rom there isn't room for quilting a bit quilt, this one is 63" x 73" I added 6 extra blocks to this one, and turning it would have cleared all the surfaces around, so the dining table at full extend was in order. The piecing went together really well, I'd happily make this pattern again.

I had an autograph book too, it's somewhere in the house but I don't have any celebrities only family and friends.

My latest make, DH asked me to make a quilt for his brother's wedding. Most of us would be flattered, but when he makes the suggestion with only 5 weeks before the wedding..... still at least he didn't complain when he had to feed himself.

The front is the Hip to be Square from Jordan Fabrics tutorials, the back which needed to be pieced to be wide enough is just a Seminole table runner pattern. Straight line quilting in the centre with 7 lines around the edges. I hadn't noticed that the fabric chosen for the border was directional, Doh! So I mitred the corners to get around it.

Thank you Carol, Margaret.

I had a very tearful phone call from her yesterday lunchtime, telling me that I was a "very naughty girl". I think she likes it and the book I sent down with it, she can't wait to get stitching herself. Jayne x

(Of course I had to buy a copy of the book for myself (£5 from the works)- Luna is not a toy as such but I think I might make one for myself - as another dust collector but who cares)

Our (great) grandmothers would have thought so Rosemary, so I don't see why not.

I'd not heard of that one Brenda.

Mine is my rotary cutter (and mat please).

Thank you Sylvia, I have to say the FQs were a 12 pack from Aldi, £6.99 for 12, although the pack of beige/brown that I'd picked up were only 11, hence I had to buy some fabric for one square although it gave me an opportunity to blend in the border fabric. I hate to admit that the fleece was bought to make my daughter a cape/poncho when she was pregnant with Michael, as you can see it never got made and M is at senior school now....

I have been given loads of fabric for charity sewing, but I just have far too much to fill 5 lifetimes let alone one. So I'm giving loads of it to a group in their third year making quilts as Christmas Presents for care leavers, I don't even have time to piece it all, so they are using the bigger pieces for quilt backs, they are going straight to the long armer. The smaller pieces I'm using for syringe driver bags / drawstring bags and period pockets for the Red Box Project / and tissue holders for donations at the hospital, all in descending size order. xx

This is my first completed quilt of 2019, I spoke to my cousin on Friday evening and she is feeling very very down at the moment. Her older brother has a new tumour just 2 years after winning the fight against stomach cancer. Her hubby is fighting to keep both retinas attached and functional at the moment and her aged mother is wondering why she's NOT the centre of the universe at the moment. I can't up sticks to go and give her a hug so I've raided my stash over the weekend plus a little bit of fabric for one square and the border. Very basic quilt, the starting squares were 15 1/2" (the size of my big ruler) just stitched and cut into QST, backed by fleece, yes from my stash too, the fleece was bought over to the front rather than binding. It'll be in the post tomorrow to give her a quilty hug.

I just had to google it too, and have now sent my daughter a message to ask her to teach me to make one. I can hold a hook and yarn and make stitches but I have never been able to follow a crochet pattern, YET.  Christmas '19 here I come.

I love your blankets Rosemary, they are stitched so beautifully and even.

Hi Rosemary,

I have plenty of fabric but a suggestion to you. Neo-natal units / Children's Hospitals take quilts from FQ size upwards, so if the fleece is big enough for a FQ they would be ideal for practicing FMQ with a useable end product.

Thank you Sylvia. Sewing is such great therapy for me; hubby has been known to 'send' me to my machine.

20181130 - st margarets school.jpgYou asked about Craft Fairs Rosemary,

I did my first ever craft fair at the local Primary School PTA Christmas Fair, There was the usual toy (mostly £1-2 each) and sweet stalls guaranteed winners, I was the only stall where they had to put their hand in their pockets, although I had items at £1 upwards. When I looked at my stall at the end I was a little despondent at how much stock I brought home with me.

But when I looked at what I'd sold I was really pleased, Stall fee £10, 2 hours, total sales £90, take home £80. For a first attempt I'm really pleased and will do more next year. Plus I sold another £25 to friends after the Fair.

This is my stall.

I've had an email from Margaret Hay, AKA Winnie....

But... the email address is wrong it also mentions Marlene, I'm not sure who but one of them has been hacked. I have deleted without opening it. Just a warning folks.
