    I know we have some Harry Potter fans here, so a heads up the Aldi have HP fat quarters, very reasonably priced too.

    I've just bought some Winnie the Pooh ones online from Aldi. I was very surprised how much you get!

    I'm not a sewer really, but thought I might try my hand at some masks. I have an amazing Pfaff sewing machine that does more than I could ever work out so I'm sure I can tackle that.

    :D The walls are pretty straight. Going round the fireplace might be a bit tricky... Hopefully I've bought loads more paper than I need :)

    What's the worst that can happen? :Hilarious

    Hehe sorry, I'm not really an HP fan but I am tempted...there are three different packs of them with ten FQs in each - only £1 per fat quarter, which is so cheap.

    Just thought you might like to see the Winnie the Pooh ones :D

    These ones are slightly more expensive though...

    I might order more tomorrow. I'm hoping to invest in a new sewing machine soon, any recommendations?

    Not to force you into anything, but they are selling out quickly on Aldi's site I think.

    I've finished the painting in my lounge. Now just to work out how to paper. Any tips would be welcome. The walls are pretty straight but there's a wooden fire surround to go round. I figure just give it a bash right?

    Looks lovely @MilleD, good luck with papering the fire surround. I used to hate doing things like that. When my OH went to Australia a few years ago, I decided to re-decorate our bedroom. When I was papering, there was a tricky bit where we've got shelves with a ridge attached to our fitted wardrobe and try as I might, I couldn't get it right when I cut round the fiddly bit, I must have cut and put on about six or seven pieces of paper which all but the last ended up in the bin. My OH was coming home the next day and I wanted it finished. In the end I thought *** it and just stuck a vase of artificial flowers in front of it. :D

    Ooh camouflage, lovely. I've currently got fairy lights around the fireplace. Perhaps I need to rethink that as they will light up any cockups :D

    Nice work @MilleD. Decorating your own house is such a satisfying job.

    Yesterday I tried to draw Ren. I gave up the body, I struggled with the shadows :Facepalm
