Can anyone suggest anything please? My trusty old Pfaff keeps breaking the top thread. I have tried changing the needle, changing tension, rethreading numerous times and checking that everything is running smoothly. Even changed where the thread is coming from. Don't think it's the thread it is very strong and won't break by hand.

Oh well done Margaret, it's great fun and beautifully quilted.

Please tell me how to reverse photos.

if you don't mind standing on your head (!)Porch backs, then here are two pics of ALL the cushions, table runner and coasters I have now made for our porch sitting area. One of the fronts and one of the more muted backs. The 3 coasters were left over rail fence squares. Does make me feel a bit sick looking up these upside down. So wish it were possible to correct.Porch fronts

Fantastic Eileen and that quilting adds so much to the finished effect.

Good fun projects Steph, lovely.

Don't think I commented on your post on this screen either Eileen. Your white on white is looking great.

Clever use of those 3 blocks Margaret, works so well and I must see if I can elongate that stitch on my machine, it is very effective (and efficient). xxx

Have now finished 3 cushions for our porch. Upside down as usual but doesn't make any difference to the patterns! Still have a small table mat and the big sideboard runner to finish then it will probably be enough green!

Hi Tina, great to see you back. Hope you are well now.

Those of us on here are still a merry bunch and very helpful as Eileen says. Look forward to seeing your photos. I am not on here (or in my sewing room) as much as I could because I spend so much time in my vegetable patches!

Sorry, guess that should really have been in Chat!

Wow Margaret you are going great guns. They are all beautiful. I did a stack and whack many years ago, fun technique. Absolutely love the colourful "blocks " one, wow some lucky person, hope they fully appreciate it, particularly the quilting effort.

I get up here in my sewing room now and then but as the weather has now become wonderful it's hard not to be outside in garden.

We are still staying mostly at home although as now in phase 1 we are allowed to eat at outside restaurant with proper distancing so we went to favourite place with large garden last week. So nice to have a meal cooked for me.

Hopefully we will have phase 2 as of Monday which should mean we are allowed to swim in the sea, but only 30% usage of beach. This should not be a problem because there are no tourists at present. Bad for the economy and them but not so much for we who live here.

Have to say I think the Spanish government have handled this whole thing very well.

Love that quilt Margaret. The greens and mauves are stunning together.

Must investigate these rulers.

Great work everyone. I have too many balls in the air in my sewing room. Been cutting batting for 3 things today and have 4 other "mats" under the machine being quilted.

Will post pics sometime.

Covid Cancer support maskCovid Cancer Support masksThey are not reversible like my preferred ones, but that is how they wanted them. Obviously need elastic ear loops.

Great work going on xxx

I made 6 masks yesterday. Hope the volunteers will like my choice of fabrics.

Whoops have to download to PP before I can display.

Did a Zoom Spanish conversation class this morning but this afternoon have been choosing fabric and lining for the masks. This and ironing takes longer than making them!

Love those Rosemary. They look such fun.

Porch matThis is the table mat and cushion, in embryo. Will do more before we finish the retreat.

However, this weekend I have promised to make some cotton washable masks for our Mallorca Cancer Support Group volunteers.Porch cushion
