It transported m back to the first season when a very talented person chose a complicated project which had she the time would have been stunning.  She ran out of time.  The winner of that challenge perfectly added one embellishment at a time adjusting what they did to fit the time limit.

Karen,
Have you looked at fabric.com?  A couple of years ago I purchased some outdoor fabric in a tropical print which was a Tommy Bahama print.  Perhaps they have a garment weight print for you!

The Great British Sewing Bee Season 4 Episode 3 - Lingerie Week YouTube video was uploaded a few minutes ago.  :)

Pina, thank you. I watched it right away.

I agree about the surprise about the very talented person going home. S(he) made a poor choice in the robe competition, even though apparently it had been practiced. There's no accounting for the jitters when the camera is rolling, I guess.

I wanted to see more innovation in the scarf challenge (selfishly) because I have a lot of silk scarves that I would love to make into something wearable besides their original mission in life.

Hurry, hurry, voters! You still have about 8.5 hours to vote before the "midnight Arizona time" deadline, which is on Daylight Mountain Time. For example right now it's 3:28 pm on 5/31/2016 Daylight Mountain time.

These members worked hard for this SWAP! Let's show our support by getting the vote out for them!

Anne, pardon me in advance, as I'm a bit under the weather this week.

My first thought was it depends. Is he chucking wood? If so, how much?

I'm so sorry...I blame the meds.



Rene I hope you feel better soon. You certainly brightened my day!

I had them tunnelling from a farm next door under my fence through my yard.  I bought a thing you put batteries in that sticks into the ground and emits a pulse or noise they don't like.  It worked. I used it for two years when I first moved in and they stopped using my yard for their tunnelling.  I lived there for 10 years and never had to use it again after the first two years. This was up north so I only had it operating during the summer months. This was 10 years ago so I will have to look to see what is available now.  It looked like a solar light you put in your flower bed with a long spike that goes in the ground except the top was smaller.

I've cut out my next piece which is a red ponte straight skirt.
This is such a super cheat item for a collection as its only two pieces.
I take the skirt pattern from Vogue 2989 and just cut out two backs (lengthened by 6 inches), sew up the sides, add elastic at the waist and hem on the coverhem machine.

 I have no remedy. We only deal with the occasional opossum here. Trap and release always sounds good to me. Just make sure it's legal where you are. I think it's a $1000 fine here. We have to go through animal control or an animal abatement company.
