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!

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.

Better late than never!

Over these 4 days I am working on various things. I recently made a runner for a sideboard on our porch which needs sandwiching and quilting. Then I decided to do an oblong mat for the low table out there. This needs borders, etc. etc. I also have a small block in more greens so am just putting borders on that to make a cushion cover.

This is the runner. I used that method where one joins strips in a very long piece and then doubles up, doubles up, etc.

As usual you need to stand on your head to see my photos!!!

I have given myself a big note and will try and take part Rosemary.

Should I assume it is only sewing related things we should post?

Cushion detail April 2020This isn't really a UFO as I only started it a couple of months ago but is now finished after much hard work, unpicking, etc. Made it for living room where the colours go nicely. One of detail. I got the idea from somewhere and then designed it myself. Won't be another one!Cushion April 2020

Great to hear from you Winnie. Stay safe and well.

Oh Eileen what an absolute pain, about the worm I mean, not your daughter as I am sure you love having her there. My daughter has decided to stay in Riyadh for the duration. She and her husband are very busy with remote teaching but have a curfew to stay indoors (in a smallish flat) from 6pm each day. They are praying they don't have to stay there over the summer. I would love it if they were here with us.

Love your Honey Rosemary, so cute but I have far too many other projects on the go.
