    The old thread was getting rather cumbersome so we have been asked to start a new thread.

    This thread continues on from the original thread here

    thanks Hester
    the quilt sounds a lovely project, perhaps you could do some dying of what you have to give some variety using naturally foraged or round the home things?

    Or ask friends and family for any spare sheets past their best. Often the middle goes bobbly but all the edges are great resource
    When I die I will know that I have lived, loved, mattered and made a difference, even if in a small way.

    I have been asked to do this several times in the past.
    The curtains are more tedious than anything but the cushions are usually all different sizes and so more awkward!

    Definitely tedious but a necessary job in the semi partnership i'm in with a good friend for camper conversions, he brings the wood/metal working i'm bringing the soft furnishings.
    I'm getting somewhat nervous about whether the overhead track i've bought it actually going to be able to cope with the weight of the cab and door curtains :/

    I bought some material to make DGD a dress. I bought too much so decided to try to get hold of a doll and make the doll a matching dress. Anyway the sort of doll I wanted e.g. one that stands up with hair no clothes is a thing of the past. All the dolls now seem to be theme types. I hunted ebay and charity shops with no luck. Then finally have got one off of ebay. Just what a want new, but vintage with shoes and pants only. The dress is made just need to do dolly's one once it arrives.
