You look gorgeous. You should be very proud of each of your custom made garments. I do love the fabrics you chose for each dress.

As an aside, were your flats comfortable for walking around DL? I always seem to see trainers/joggers in many people's pics.

Thank you for showing me your beautiful dresses.

Best wishes for your future sewing projects.

This is a very elegant picnic set. I can visualize all manner of marvelous meals and happy times with it. Congratulations and best wishes for many years of great dining.

I'm partial to pink, maroon and brown as a triad. Maroon seems to bridge pink and brown rather nicely.

I have seen a living room done with pink, cognac and brown - it was very cozy. The carpet was a colour called latte and truly was the colour of a double shot latte. The timber in the room was a combo of light pine (the legs of the cognac couch and chairs) and walnut (tv stand, book cases, coffee table).

So taking salvaged cereal boxes, I created some pretty nifty organizer dividers for my shelves.

Your dividers would make it easy to take a group of fabrics off a shelf, use them, then put them back neatly in place. Marvelous.

I can relate to your dilemma. In winter on really cold days I wear leggings then I have on a strappy summer dress with a long sleeved blouse over the top which then has a sleeveless dress over that. I hope this makes sense. On cold days I replace the strappy dress with a coloured sleeveless top.

I wear the long sleeved blouses all year round as in spring and autumn I roll the sleeves up and leave them open over a coloured sleeveless or strappy top and wear them with pants. As the weather cools off further I change the sleeveless top for a short sleeved top.

In the heat of summer I wear the strappy and summer dresses. I also have an overcoat for winter wear as the westerly winds are bitter.

Can it go across the front of your fireplace to display things on? I was just looking at your fireplace and thinking a long, tall, narrow table would almost act like a mantle piece. Some years ago DH bought me two from Walmart or Target and they've been very useful in every house or apartment we've been in.

I don't have the answer because I have the same question. I hope someone can help us. I've poked around on the web but I have not seen any acceptable-to-me results. I'll keep researching and will post back here if I find something.

I have to agree with 'Nofuelleft', about pre-wound bobbins, I don't think they exist. I too have searched for them at various times over the years.

Please share with us what you did and what you were not happy with as we may be able to assist you.

Happy sewing to all.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: COVERING UGLY CURTAINS THAT ARE PRO INSTALLED on: January 10, 2014 02:47:54 AM
You could use swags perhaps. if you look at this pic http://tinyurl.com/lr8k3t8 you'll see what I mean. When renting I used metres of white lace to make swags to cover up landlords ugly choices (blinds and curtains). I took it with me when I moved.

It does rely on a curtain rod but in one house I draped it using the pelmet. Lead sinkers held the lace across the top of the pelmet so I could still drape it in the middle.

Best wishes.
