Can I put in a request for a 'Gallery' board?

Yeah sure mate, I will get right onto that now. Which section would that be best in?

Cheers, M'dear.

In the old place it sat quite comfortably with the coffee shop and the members bookshelf.  Out of the way but not too hidden.

Cool, that way it isn't confined to prose.

Dylan used to stick his sporadic poems in there.  A place for people to share or showcase items they don't necessarily want critiqued.  So they don't clutter the review boards.

Anyway, I'm off to bed now.  Not quite before midnight, but close.  Another hard days shredding behind me.  I  have completed my first full plastic bin liner of shreddings, all tied of shut and ready to go.

Half a mail sack of unshredded paper fills one black sack.  So there's going to be four of them before I even start on thinning out the filing cabinet.

A lot of my bills, etc, are online now, but this doesn't seem to reduce the amount of mail that comes through my door ;-)

I ordered a bunch of vinyl and AFTER I did, my niece told me about a sale elsewhere. Isn't that just the way things go?

Since I bought a bunch of precut packs, I didn't spend much more where I bought the stuff, but ...

And it's not like I bought anything I couldn't actually afford to pay for. So it's all good. And I'm going to have a bunch of new supplies. I enjoy making this stuff. I wonder how long that's going to last.

Is this for the shirts, Patti?

You're setting up a proper little cottage industry there ;-)

Not much of an industry. I've sold two. I've made many. Most for myself and then a bunch as presents.

For one of my CrossFit friends, I made one with a stork on it saying "Nine month partner WOD"
I liked that one.

I'm really bad at marketing.

You design and stitch clothes, SpellChick?
Cool...I always wanted to do that but never actually got around to learning.

I have sewn my entire wardrobe. But now I buy the clothes and put designs on them. I post a lot of pictures of my shirts on Facebook/Instagram.

I actually have an entire stash of fabric I bought several years ago and didn't turn it into the skirts I had envisioned. I probably could do something with that and then put my own designed vinyl stuff on that.

I really hate putting in buttonholes. I usually nick the stitching while trying to open the hole. And that was when I was younger and had steadier hands.

And eyes  :o

I sewed for a living once, the right side seam on undies. That is my limit but I'm jolly well fast  ;D

I sewed bridesmaid dresses in college to make money.   
I even made myself a Leisure Suit.  A PURPLE Leisure Suit. 

What can I say?  It was the 70's...
