Karen, unfortunately I don't think I can find the time for another group, but, you know, I am always happy to share "Kevins" with everybody.

So....Shazz............and girls..........................would you be interested in meeting a "Kevin".....I wonder?

Miss Linda.... no need for time.... I have not much spare anyway and haven't actually been to fb since the confusion of joining the group...... but I will pop in now and again, on my days off lol, if I have any.
Hi Rosie and rosy!!
Rosie, does the daughter still have a toe? I must admit, I used to be known for not closing the rotary cutter but now, with children about, it has become second nature and I also press the lock button.
KEVIN IN A GARDEN???? Mine is too nice for that... he has a special spot indoors... he is tiny, shiny and trimmed with gold. Smiley Happy
We are off to playgroup! be good.

Shazz, every Kevin is a special Kevin, and, my Kevins don't like being outside in the open, they prefer inside and under the hedge.

I always put the cap on my cutter when I leave it unattended, but, learned the hard way, to hold everything tightly when cutting, my cutter slipped because I did not have enough pressure on it, up and over both the ruler and my finger, I was very lucky I didn't need stitches, could have been worse.

Karen I will give Shazz my details for FB, and i will try and pop in occasionally.LOL

Shazz you will have mail in a minute.

HELLLP I did my 1/2 squares but now they are smaller than the other squares that are plain. How can they now be sewn together? Do I have to cut my other squares smaller now?
Do you need a pic to see what I mean?

ok your triangles will be smaller once u have stitched them, so u need to measure the triangles and then cut your plain fabric to that size from the looks of the pics

where's an expert when we need em lol

Uuuuhmmmmmmm, just thinking how to write some instructions after catching up with the thread.

There is a theory re triangles and squares to do with the cutting of fabric.

So 1st question is how did you cut the triangles? Did you just slice the squares in half?
