  • I finally decided I have to set time aside each week for a "fun" activity. In the last week we made 3 prototype bow ties (well one is finished and two will need finishing in to hair bows) for our wedding next year. We did buy some pillowcases to make the pattern material go further but the printed material (for both prototypes and the final design) is all from my existing fat quarter collection!

    Thanks Florenceem, this was about the 3rd attempt over 3 years 😳. I started with very complicated designs and didn't like them so plain old four block with sashing but I like it

    Lovely quilt plumduff
  • @plumduff55 love the tshirt! Very clever as it does not look easy to do at all! My partner, 30 years old, also wears matching tshirts with his D and D people 🙄 but another of the group had them printed as I do not think Id be willing to make them 😂

    thanks @sammy_kaye18 ☺ hope youve managed to get used to the quiet!
