Morning everyone (no "good" today!!)! How are you all doing this wet and horrible morning! No washing...but maybe some ironing ( of fabric..not clothes) later!! I hope nobody has real problems with the rain ☔! Best Rosemary

it was a good morning for me today. I am in S wales and the sun was peeping between the clouds and no rain. The best bit was I am with my youngest girl Victoria and she is 21 tomorrow laugh She doesn't own nor want an iron so not even clothes. The only draw back is there aren't any fabric shops in town sad but I have bought some hand sewing to do.

There is lots of surface water around but little damage around where she lives.

I hope everyone else is safe too.

Hi Eileen

At this time of year I tend to think autumn colours. How about Christmas or ombre colours?

You may have noticed that I like Bargello! Look in my 'Quilts and Wallhangings'album, started in 2009. There are 2 there. Gold metallic is not a good idea. It helps not to iron it!
2017 Quilts and Things album and 2018 Quilts and Things album both have Bargello quilts in them.

It helps to have one strong colour or contrast.

I have some lovely pastel rainbow strips lined up for a project somewhen that would look great in a bargello design. Project waist coat using a furry style sweatshirt, butchering the arms off. I have far to many ideas/stash/ufo's.

Also, big prints don't work well in Bargello.

I have an apology from Margaret/Winnie..... especially for those of you living near Edinburgh!!! She is sorry for the blue cloud hanging over the city....it is a result of her recent conversations with BT over the reasons why her phone/internet/TV wasn't connected as expected yesterday....even though they are taking their money!!!

She has no idea when "they" will actually get it sorted.....it appears no time soon!!!

Best Rosemary

Hi Rosemary,

Please give Winnie my best wishes, and I look forward to hearing from her when BT allows her to join the 21st century again.

Jayne and DH xx
