Thread: Quilty Calendar for 2020

Lovely calendar Rosemary which finally arrived today. Not your fault. Delivery company here. Next year I must have it sent to a UK friend or family to post to me.

Well done everyone in it for the great work. I shall enjoy it month by month.

Cosi w/e 2019 GnomesCosi w/e 2019 Easy Dresden PlateCosi w/e 2019 bias weavingBit late posting but at my Cosi Patchwork hotel weekend at end of last year we did 3 workshops. A woven bias binding block. I finished this one but really don't know what to do with it! I chose the colours for the kit via WhatsApp and they are not what I expected. Also it's very stiff because it's ironed onto some strong plasticy fusible sheet. Any ideas? Maybe a bag?

The easy Dresden Plate I do like and am in process of making mine into a cushion. They project was actually for a round bag.

Third was a pair of gnomes for Christmas. I bought the kit but couldn't do much of it with my broken arm as it involved a lot of hand sewing through thick fabric. Photo of a finished one.

Was a great weekend though.Cosi w/e 2019  workshop

I agree Margaret. I have a lovely place to sew and an embarrassing amount of fabric so must get on with it this year.

Morning Rosemary. If it's not too late could I please order a calendar. A mix of all our lovely PPers work will be wonderful to have on my kitchen wall for 2020.

If I had got myself organised I could have had it sent to UK for my daughter to bring when she comes but hey ho it will have to be postage to Spain.

Hello everyone,

I am still alive, although with a recovering broken left humerus. Not really sure why I haven't been on here for ages. Guess the summer is so much outside I don't do any sewing and don't think about PP. Sorry.

I went to my hotel weekend with the Cosi Patchwork group I belong to in Palma. Usual good time, although some things were impossible for me with my arm in a plastic splint. Managed machine sewing ok but hand sewing through thick fabric was too much.

I haven't even made any new Christmas things this year. I do have a LOT already!

Anyway I suddenly saw that it is the last month on my PP calendar and I haven't ordered one so will get onto that chat line.

A very happy and healthy Christmas and 2020 to everyone xxxxx

Just enjoyed the 5 pages of your uploads here Rosemary. Thanks very much, it's great to see it through the eyes of one of us. Maybe I will get there again one day and if August is always going to be as hot as this year here then I might need to escape. Difficult to leave the veg. patch though.

Have to stop on this pc upstairs in my sewing room now because I am dripping. No sewing being done here at present.

What a pain Rosemary. Good luck with that one. Unpicking is not an option I choose at my advanced age!!! Would be tempted to quilt in various different colours to make it less obvious lol xxx

I often think about Katie and wonder how she is. I believe one or two of you are in touch with her?? Please give her my love if so and if she would welcome an email from me I would love to "talk" with her.

Hi everyone, not been on site much lately but now catching up with all the lovely things. I have seen pics of virus shawls but why are they called that?

A good friend of mine from UK p & q days now only seems to crochet. Like you Jayne I have never been able to follow a pattern.

Oh my goodness Eileen, that looks SO complicated. Well done, it's stunning.
