Dearest Cutie Ladies, I should like to begin by apologising to you all for not having posted for some time. I'm afraid that I have been very unwell for some time and particularly over the past several months. Things are not improving greatly but at le
Good afternoon Cutie ladies. This is really a question for those of you who, like me, prefer to use Madeira threads for my machine embroidery. I am trying to identify the correct colour code to give a realistic white skin tone and also one that displays a
Just looking for some advice. I'm looking at making some filled children's toys using a number of designs that I have downloaded from a UK sewing magazine. The download comes with full sized templates and instructions which should make life simple but,

I was just wondering if any of the UK Cuties are watching the BBC's Great Allotment Challenge? It's a bit like The Great British Sewing Bee but the contestants are sowing instead. The idea is that couples are given a standard allotment in which they gro
Following Shirley's post on the subject of "How to make a cake thingy in a recycled tin can and now, the further admission by certain UK Cuties that they are making feverish moves to save all the tin cans they can lay their hands on, I thought that perh
April 14 2014: My apologies for having been AWOL for several days ladies. Unfortunately, I've been laid up during this time and really not feeling great. Anyway, such is the way of these things. I haven't yet had chance to review all the posts th
