    I haven't decided yet... something special though... but still simple... some kind of quilt..

    This is what I got so I really want something that makes the most of the big peacocks!

    I was asked to make this one as a present for a work colleagues friend (not really my colours... first pillowcase I’ve made though)

    the words are all machine stitched around so hopefully will survive washing well! The insides are double stitched (i don’t own an overlocker)

    Apparently there is an over-locker foot available to convert virtually any sewing machine - I'm very tempted ! I've seen them on Amazon.

    I'm having a mini-break from face mask adapters having made and distributed around 300. My latest project is crochet hearts, A lot of hospitals and funeral directors are giving them to families, one for the deceased and one for the family to keep. I made my first pair yesterday, very sadly it's going to a friend's family. My friend who died of Covid was in my group of student nurses when we were training. 20200525_232840.jpg

    @Willow_Warren I'm full of admiration for your machining skills

    @SusieRainbow they are very pretty and will be much appreciated by your friend's family I'm sure

    Thank you. She was just a little older than me and diagnosed with dementia a few years ago, we had been friends for over 50 years. Although we hadn't met up since her diagnosis it's a big loss, she was such a good friend, and it brings home your own mortality.
    Hopefully our group can meet up as planned later this year and raise a glass to her.

    Latest project, we fitted a new front door! What an epic, trust me, I came close to divorce and murder by the end of ten long hours :Yawn
    Of course my husband is NOW unable to get through our new front door because his head has swollen :Smuggrin

    Well, what a fantastic job he's made of it @ewelsh :) Think of the money you've saved having hubby do it instead of a contractor too. So many positives ;)

    Now go and stand and admire it again, hehe.

    @ewelsh you can't say you were bored during lockdown. And if ever you have a free moment or two, you can sit outside with a cup of herbal tea and admire your beautiful front door:D
