Jackie,
I have been going through boxes of fabric and have found some I can use to make myself some shorts, pants and tops. You mentioned before that you have been able to download free patterns. Do you have any liks I can use for this? One of the teachers where I work has motivated me to start sewing them and I have lots of fabric from yard sales that I need to use up. Thanks!

Bev,

I will look up some sites for you a bit later. I know most of them are small household stuff like pot holders, and the masks I sewed during the pandemic, but I think some of the sites have some simple adult patterns.

Used up another piece of knit fabric making my top yesterday. I tried the different collar and I am not sure if I like it. Oh well live and learn.

This afternoon I hope to use up some scrap fabrics in squares for the quilt I am going to be making (well quilt top for now).

So I figured out that I used 378 4" squares in the quilt top I am making. Bad thing is I still have loads of 4" squares left!!!! What on earth am I going to do with all of them. I do have a few ideas but if any of you have some let me know.
