What an interesting Blog. Thank you. It has made me think about my family phrases. Ooh and my grandmother was a tailor and she taught me to sew. She used to make me dresses and if I wasn’t available for a ‘try on’ for the length of the belt – she would wind it round her ‘ample’ waist and if it fit she would say that will fit our Sooney (my…[Read more]
Jane, you are a very brave lady! Although I am not going (too far to go from Spain, and we are over at Christmas – so the expense is another factor), I will be thinking of you all and hoping that you all have a great, rewarding and enjoyable weekend. I used to live about 2 miles away from the venue – so I can picture you all there. I am sure…[Read more]
Expanding Sewing Workbox (Etui)
This is the second Workbox I have made and, boy, do I wish I had taken photos and made a record of what did last time!
The Workbox will take you several hours to make, cutting…
Love the idea of a home away from home. I, too, have two machines and another one. My other was is a Newhome too, had it as a present to myself when I was widowed in 1978. It, too, doesn’t work but it still has pride of place in my workroom. Look forward to hearing more of your tales from the Acorn Falls…… thank you x

I totally agree with your comments Ruth, and one thing I would add is to have a drink. It only needs to be a glass of water, or G & T if that is what you would like. I frequently get so engrossed that I forget to have a drink – could go 3 or 4 hours….. It also makes you get up and walk around – so two plusses!!! x
