So far...

 DB is the only one of us not to have gone down with whatever DGD had whilst we were away. No wonder she felt so unwell. A severe sore throat, so far no runny nose or sneezing. She spiked temperatures though which DDiL is doing, us others are okay regarding that.

Having had chiro treatment yesterday, we take the oppurtunity to visit two huge warehouse sized charity shops nearby. I picked up 3 double quilt covers for £12, a cheap way of buying lots of material. Below are the freshly washed (but not dried) pillowcases so you can see each side of the material:

The blue side above is a bit thin so might not use that for a skirt.

I have found a pattern online for a 'pioneer skirt' which I would like to have a go at. I love to wear skirts all year, even in winter. I should be able to make them as long/short as required.

  3. What a good idea to get a large amount of fabric for a reasonable price. I particularly like the patchwork effect one.

  4. I bought quilt covers yo make bags for the NHS in 2020. As you say lots of fabric for very little money.

    1. If you can find material to your taste, they are ideal.

  5. Hope you feel better soon. Such a great idea to use quilt covers for fabric, I must take a look the next time I go into town.

    1. I could have bought more but thought those enough for now. Curtains for projects are another idea as the material is thicker.
