OMG I'm so glad I'm not the only one - you will understand my excitement of what J showed me yesterday - He had to order some airconditioning seals from China and was cheaper to get them from there in a huge box than just a few here. I'd (for obvious reasons :hohoho: ) not bothered looking but then for some reason did yesterday and they are PURPLE I was so excited as that was the first thing I thought of :hohoho: :knit: @gilbertandmartha


Do you say purple????
Very cool!

I think I need a link! I lose stitch markers (I think the fairies child hides them) with alarming frequency..

@sim Halfords is usually your best bet for O rings you can buy a massive tub for buttons! or bunnings or what ever the diy store is called.

My seam allowance guide, because in europe you always have to add seam allowance.
The foot collection of my machine, won't bore you all with a list.

And I'm sure there's muh more that have become so standard that I don't think of it atm ;)

Random one for you here - my nail clippers. I've found that KAM snaps work best on thin projects if you snip the pointy end off about 2mm before snapping.

@MissFrodo so when I get around to making the Olivia dress will I need to add a seam allowance? its all in german so I will have to make it up as i go along

Yes you need to add seam allowance for all Farbenmix patterns.

It would be my rotary cutter, but, my lovely enormous cutting mat disappeared when we move and I keep ruining chopping boards with it :oops:
Alternative would be my project bag just because it's beautiful :D
I should really make a pin cushion and needle book to match to save them all floating around inside as the current ones are rubbish! However, repeatedly being stabbed doesn't seem to remind me enough :giggle:
