Sew much fabric, sew little time

Incorporating hobbies, computer games, Verm's Interesting Links and anything else you can think of excluding football and other spectator sports because these belong in the Sport section, but allowing sports you play yourself with your own body as that counts as a pastime.

Thank you! I'll take a snap of the quilt top with the border on it tomorrow.

I should get it backed and quilted over Easter and then I'm going back to the black/white cat quilt that I did a test block for a couple of years ago.

OTH, I love that jacket! Lucky monkey.

Your quilts absolutely blow my mind Rosy. They are so good!

I haven’t done any sewing for a long time but using some machine and hand stitching I made this hat for Betty.

I have accidently snipped a tiny hole in the front of a dress that I'm making. Is there anything really good I can get to mend it/to stop it getting worse?

That's a great idea. I'll do that on the inside then iron a little bit of lightweight fusible interfacing on the inside.

I've finished the dress but found the neck and it's facing so difficult and it's not right. Talk about "easing" it all in! :(

That looks lovely on you, Marth. You'd never know there was anything wrong with it.

Thanks OTH. The collar had to really eased in. Then the facing had to be as well, and it ended up like an internal frill! I had to cut it as it was pulling the v at the front.
