Lovely to hear your move went well. I love your new sewing room. I am sure you will soon settle down into your new sewing rhythm and the last 8 weeks will be as if they never happened.

Thread: Sewing quarter

Thanks for that Margaret. I found out that if you go the website you can see what is coming up at least a week at a time.

I often find the books in places like the range and the works much cheaper, so I agree about that. Though the books are usually less than the rrp.

Or is it now called Sewing Street? either way what do you think?

Have any of you bought from Sewing quarter, the tv channel?

Are the panels eg the block of the month good quality/value for money?

Hubby was watching and was interested and wondered if I was going to open an account.

I like to feel fabric first. So do any of you shop with them and what has your experience been like?

thanks Eileen x

I enjoyed Sewing bee last night. Katherine who went out last week is an acquaintance of mine. She said it was an experience she thoroughly enjoyed.

It annoys me that the lad who never follows the instructions never seems to get penalised for it.

I also watch the jewellery one too.

Wow Rosemary they are beautiful. I love the idea of the little purses and i will have a play and a think about how i can adapt the idea too.

you are a very talented lady.

I've not done much sewing lately as the fine weather has demanded gardening and motorbike riding with hubby.

I have been watching sewing bee have you?

Well you have had a year of it and meeting up with friends is something I'm looking forward to. Dorothy has done well to get to the big 100. I bet you will have a lovely time.

Congrats to DD on completing her degree, our 's came home March 24th last yr and had to complete her dissertation from home. Not ideal and she also has only a printed at home copy of her certificate. They are hoping that there grad ceremony will go ahead this year.

that is just an adorable quilt. so cheerful.

wow that is a big decision re downsizing but if you are well and able to then why not? Much better to do it on your terms than have the decision made for you.

as you say as long as you are sewing does it really matter what you make.

I am not that young, though it is all relative isn't it? I get a perverse joy thinking my 2 girls would have to sort my sewing room. Problem will be sorting the classic motorbikes of my husband [14 in total plus 2 classic cars]

My eldest girl would happily take most of my stash so it will have a home, hopefully not for many years.

My youngest would take all the embroidery/wools etc as that is her preferred crafting medium.

Hope you are all well and coping during this slow release from lockdown. I am still waiting for my second jab [late May].

That is beautiful Sylvia.

it took me ages to work out what you meant about the mirror image so it clearly isnt that much of an issue. I'm still not 100% certain which bit is wrong[ if any is!]

I didn't get a march issue so I bought one at least 2 weeks ago. I assumed the subscription would kick in for April.

Thanks for getting back to me Rosemary.

I have renewed my subscription but I haven't yet got my April issue. When do most of you get yours in the post. The DD was taken out late February.

Thanks ladies for the suggestions. I have even been watching Sewing Street properly and whilst I have gained some ideas for borders etc I'm not inspired to start anything.

I often look and feel my fabrics but then end up putting them back as they are too special to use just yet!

I keep re-reading my project books but when I find something I fancy making I don't have the right fabrics.

Perhaps I will get some inspiration from the flowers growing in the garden.

How are we all doing? I seem to have lost my mojo to actually make something, though I am desperate to sew something.

what do you do if you hit the 'wall'?

I am halfway through a knitting project but that is for sitting whilst watching TV.

how about a piece of gingham there are a range of sizes. I have some that was school uniform stuff that may in fact be poly-cotton. In my scraps I may have red, lilac and possibly pink.. I do have some poly-cotton in a range of colours but that has impressed daisies on it and they are about the size of a 1p coin.

if they are any good let me know and I will see what I can dig out for you.
