I enjoyed it on the whole but was cross that they didn't penalise if the product wasn't finished off properly. I was pleased that Juliet won as she had the best finishes on her garments overall. as for weights and rotary cutter I'm with you there Margaret. They should penalise for not following instructions too. that made me equally frustrated. Dare I say I don't like Stuart and I don't remember who charlotte is.
I did prefer the other woman, cant remember her name though. My eldest girl did a uni work placement with Patrick and she said he was so helpful and generous of his time. sadly she didn't get offered a job.
I thought Joe was a brilliant foil to them all and his dress sense was so off the wall that he wasn't competing with the designs.

I'm sorry I've been AWOL over the past week or so. Thank you to everyone for your kind words about my mini quilt. It was fun taking part but the best bit was finding a new friend. Kaye and I get on so well. I hope to meet her some day.
I would loved to have seen the TV programme you mention. We did get some of the previous ones from years ago when they had to make a dress on a Singer Featherweight machine!
Congratulations on reaching the final stages of the FOQ quilt Rosemary. You have taken on a big job there and I for one would like to say thank you for all your efforts.
I have been busy preparing a bag project for a future issue of P & Q and that has kept us busy plus making samples for a workshop for our quilt group. We are off on a weekend retreat at the beginning of next month. 40 of us are taking to the hills for an indulgent weekend of sewing, shopping and just having fun.
Enjoy your stitching!
Brenda in OZ.

And we thought it was a good idea to leave our sun terrace parasols behind us in the Dordogne!!! We actually had to take shade in the house up here in Edinburgh!!!!
Hope you all had your sun screen at the ready!

Yes I am still sewing, at the moment I am making a table runner as a wedding present for a friend. Once it has gone to the happy couple I will post a photo. I am also thinking about sewing some summer clothes soon.

I'm still sewing too and I really must find the time to photo 2 quilts that I have finished. I've not been well for the last 3 days with some kind of stomache problem, but things seem easier today and I've been sewing this morning - one quilt is still in the assembling and another needs the binding. I've also found a 2007 UFO which will be the next thing to sort out.
With most of our quilting fabric coming from the USA and made in China I am really worried about the extra 15% tax that will be going on fabric. If it goes ahead, maybe time to think of quickly increasing our stashes as fabric is expensive enough already.

I too, am concerned about the possibility of price increases as the result of Trumps actions! I am American, but have lived in the UK for many years, and have always felt aggrieved by the costs of fabric here....paying in £ the same amount I could buy in the States for $...it just doesn’t seem fair! However, increasing stash ‘just in case’ seems like a good plan....!!
