  1. Ah, the joys of heated seats & heated steering wheel
  2. Yes, that it is. Hubby had to scrape his car windows this morning (leaves house at 6 am for work)
  3. Morning and Thank you! Forgot about baking soda and water. Will let you know how things turn out Things are a little chilly here in Southern Ontario today -1 C at 8:30 when we were out walking!
  4. Evening everyone: not really sewing related but I figured you guys would be a great resource. I have a lovely evening bag that I believe is made with satin. And of course it has a stain/watermark of some sort on it. Meant to clean it post cruise last fall. . . . you know where this is going . . . any suggestions? Thank you in advance, Sue >M<
  5. Thank you for the link. It was/is a great read.
  6. Fabulous photos of your outfits Lisa! Having part-timers issue: I thought someone had posted a link for increasing tummy size for mens shirt. Even looked on Threads and may be I am not looking with the right words / phrase. I get adjustments for pants. I am thinking that I would find the halfway part/distance along the waistline and spread the base open but keep the centre front the way it is? Thanks, Sue >M<
  7. Glad to read that everyone is doing well. I like the pattern that you are looking at Geocruiser, but agree, could be cool/cold.
  8. Fabulous! I understand where you are coming from, not quite as tall but always adding length to pants, skirts, dresses and sleeves. The fabric reminds me of Ralph Lauren
  9. Thank you for the pattern information. Love the Llama fabric!
  10. Gorgeous looking dress. May I ask about the pattern? I would not have to add to the top (short waisted) but may need/want length in the skirt (all of my height is in my legs!) Thinking this would be good for sea days instead of wearing shorts. Dresses can be squished for packing and easily rinsed in the bathroom sink and hung to dry.
  11. I subscribe the 'Insider" which is part of the Treads magazine. A long time ago I use to subscribe to the Vogue Sewing magazine. Do not remember how I stumbled on to Threads, but I do love it.
  12. Good day everyone! Fabulous period costumes! Just discovered that Burda Style has a free sew-a-long for the month of April for a track jacket This is the pattern but if sign up for the “class” the pattern is included. Have a great day, Sue
  13. You ladies are rocking the sewing! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. Good morning everyone. Spent the Canada Day holiday at the outlet mall in Niagara on the Lake, where I can usually find running and hiking shoes [emoji148] for my big feet at the brand name store for less than at the specialty shoe store I patronize. We stopped in at the Eddie Bauer store and I actually fitted into a shirt that was on promo and advertising as Adventurer II Shirts - lightweight, high-performance Hikers & Travelers. Also provide UPF 50 sun protection They used a fine mesh for the inside of the back yoke (I should know the name of that fabric but it escapes me now) and the fabric is very light. There use to be a fabric / adventure store in Calgary, AB that carried the UPF fabric, will check and see if Peak fabrics might have that type of fabric. This is the content label. Have a great week everyone Sent from my iPad using Forums
  15. I will admit that the only fabric I have purchased on line is stuff for quilting, but it was material that I had before (Northcott) so I knew what was coming. I am fortunate that I am just a 20 minutes drive to Ottawa St in Hamilton ON if the Fabricland near me doesn’t have what I’m looking for. Sent from my iPad using Forums
