Thanks Lindsay. I will do.

Sketchy 17-12-2017 09:24 PM

Lindsay I haven’t forgot I promised to make you one of my little bags. I’ll get working on it after Christmas.

Cacoethes 17-12-2017 09:24 PM

Love Actually is on Netflix if you have it.

And muppets Christmas carol is waaayy better than the human version!

Sketchy 17-12-2017 09:25 PM

Muppets are always good.

one_step_closer 17-12-2017 09:27 PM

Maybe one day muppets will replace humans in all things. No jokes about that currently being the case!

Don't have Netflix any more.

Lorraine, there's no rush. You don't even actually have to make me anything. You're too kind.

Sketchy 17-12-2017 09:29 PM

I’m happy to do it. Keeps me distracted, and I now have heaps of fabric to choose from begging to be used.

one_step_closer 17-12-2017 09:30 PM

How do you even decide which fabric to use? Just make ALL the things?!

Cacoethes 17-12-2017 09:31 PM

Hahaha! It is becoming true, the whole muppet thing :p

You dont have netflix?! :O

Sketchy 17-12-2017 09:33 PM

I know I spend ages choosing. I’m going to attempt to make myself an apron for when I’m painting. I’m also going to make myself storage bags too.

Cacoethes 17-12-2017 09:34 PM

I made an apron once!
At one of the long stay units i was on did textiles so we made stuff like the aprons and bean bags and toys and stuff.
It was fun!

Sketchy 17-12-2017 09:35 PM

That does sound fun.

I wish I was creative like you lot!! The most I ever managed was a few **** drawings and some collages. I am hopeless at sewing knitting you name it.

Sketchy 17-12-2017 09:46 PM

I can only do very basic knitting. I’m hopeless at it. Sister is brilliant at it. She knits such cosy socks.
Do you still draw and make collages?

Cacoethes 17-12-2017 09:48 PM

I can't do any of it now!
I used to sew all the time but i seem to have lost my creative flair as the years have gone by!

one_step_closer 17-12-2017 09:48 PM

I used to have Netflix but then decided to stick with TV to save money because I wasn't really watching much on Netflix.

Lorraine, do you have loads of fabric then? Will you make a multi fabric apron or all one fabric?

I have no patience for things like that. Tried cross stitch a while ago but it's a bit hard to make sure you're stitching in the right square.

Sketchy 17-12-2017 09:53 PM

I have loads of fabric, all thanks to my sister. I’ll probably use two different fabrics for my apron.

Cacoethes 17-12-2017 09:53 PM

Fair point!
All my family watch on my Netflix, well, they did until a payment failed to go through so they pay for it now :p

I didnt get on with cross stitch either!

one_step_closer 17-12-2017 10:18 PM

Does that mean you have your own Netflix or are you using theirs now?

I really need to try and quietly post my neighbours Christmas cards. I keep putting it off because I don't want to talk to anyone but they might hear me and come out! One of my neighbours is definitely nosey/chatty enough to do this. I don't even want anyone to look out of their window at me. Fun times!

tiptoes 17-12-2017 10:18 PM

I love cross stitch but there are some times when it is way too nerve racking to try and find the right square!

Your apron sounds like a good project Sketchy.

Hi everyone

Sketchy 17-12-2017 10:19 PM

Thanks. How are you doing?
