I love the material, Daloni.
I know I am one of the oldest on here, but does anyone else remember silver paper pictures? I must have been 8 or 9, visiting my great grandmother, and have vivid memories of pictures on her wall with bright silver paper designs on a black background. I was telling my grand daughter at the weekend, so we made a picture with silver paper from her Easter eggs!!! Unfortunately I was too busy to take a photo!!
Lovely fabric. Patrick off The Sewing Bee would compliment you on your excellent pattern matching
I use Middlesex Textiles in Middlesex Street. It’s one of several shops in the area but it is by far the best value. That fabric was, I think, £10 for 6 yards. Might have been £15. It’s a lovely soft cotton. They do online orders but I prefer to go in person so I can feel the fabric.
There’s also a good shop just opposite Upton Park tube but I forget what it’s called. I’m told you can get them in the Goldhawk Road in Shepherd’s Bush too.
What is a community champ?
I sure do, NannyAnny. They still sell them at our local toy/stationery shop. I have one done by my daughter in my kitchen
I love them Daloni,
I was in Greenwich market on holiday a few weeks ago and I thought of you when I saw a lady sewing / selling beautiful clothes made from African fabrics, if I'd had longer there I'd have been tempted to ask for a dress.
I'm impressed with your pattern matching too, ive been watching the great British sewing bee and know its difficult to do lol!
What is a Community Champion?
I saw this in a magazine and decided to paint it. I give it a name "will you be mine?" I thought they looked so cute.

I’m quite proud of this - a crocheted blanket called Delft that’s based on blue Delft pottery.
wow I love this X
Thanks DINAH MAY
Wonderful, daloni just wonderful! xx
I want one too xxxxxx

Thank you @fairycake worried45
It was a lot of work - the border alone has some 5000 stitches but then I’ve had a lot of sofa days. It’s a lovely pattern though and the colours work so well
you are quite right to feel very proud of your work. It's lovely. The colours go really well together. There are advantages to sofa days and this is one of them. It must have taken you hours. Great talent, your girls will be fighting over it
Wow this is beautiful, it looks like it must have taken months to do with all the detail, it really is stunning. Your family and friends must be queuing round the block for your handy work!
