Happy Birthday  :toast: :cake:

Sunny with some clouds, 2°C.

Today's highlight will be our Sainsbos delivery.

@Diane I don't think this time of year helps lift your mood either.  Top marks to your OH for his hugs though, what a star! I can't be bothered to do anything, but I always, always get dressed, even if my hair hasn't been washed for a week or more.

Definitely do it yourself, @Diane   Are the cabinets ok?  You could perhaps even just change the doors and worktops.

@Iminei It is a toy, it's quite light, measures 9" along the top of the bed including the flap, and 8" tall. 

Before you get too excited, I have to tell you they are quite rare and sell for quite a bit.  I'm just researching prices...

Another day of nothingness...

Overlockers & Coverstitchers / Re: Right needle thread keep breaking!
« on: January 14, 2022, 20:54:50 PM »
Are you threading the correct needle first?  With my Brother 3034 I have to thread the right needle then the left needle, so if the right breaks, I undo the left one too and start again.
Sorry, you said you've had it a while, you probably know this!

A Good Yarn / Re: New project fair isle

Oooh, looking forward to seeing your progress - what weight of yarn are you using?  Doing the plain parts on a machine will make it so much quicker.

@Iminei It is actually a Vulcan toy copy of a featherweight.

@LeilaMay sorry, no box, send me a message if you'd still like it.

@LeilaMay I'm not sure about the box, I'll have look in a while - I'm in the hot tub, seems a shame to waste the lovely sunshine!

In the wardrobe / Re: Emilie turtleneck to try out new overlocker

Looks great!  I bet you love your overlocker, I think mine gets used more than my sewing machine.

@LeilaMay That one is a Vulcan countess.

I have loads, this is just an overview of some of them.  I will be putting them on that well known auction site a few at a time, but if you spot anything you fancy, I can show more pics - and make me an offer!
