Happy birthday from me too, hope it's a good one.  :toast: :cake: :flower:

@Iminei and @Sandra  I'm with you, been nearly a week now and still not good, seems there are "super" cold and flu bugs around as we haven't been exposed to them for a while. Well they can just 'bug' off I'm fed up with all the nose blowing and coughing. :grouphug:

I learned to sew on a treadle machine many moons ago, lovely machine and mum always regretted getting rid of it for an electric one.
Good luck with the restoration, I'm sure it will be worth it.

Happy birthday, hope you get some good news. :flower: :flower:

Thank you @Pearl for the photos and the YouTube link.
It's ages since I've been to a show or done any quilting so to see these has been inspiring. Glad you had a good time.
I love the tree quilt.

Congratulations @Tamnymore  :VV: :VV:
All the fun to come - rent-a-mob 2 have just gone home and I'm ready for bed !!!!!!!!

OH phoned our GP's last Friday as he needed a blood test,- Dr will phone you this afternoon - fine.
4.30pm GP phoned - sanctioned blood test. Few minutes later another partner phoned - "I know Dr P is busy so thought I'd phone you, can I help?" OH explained that GP had already phoned thank you, no problem. OH phoned surgery yesterday morning just after 9 am - blood test 10,10am - they'd had a cancellation. Wow how's that for service? Haven't needed a face to face appointment so I don't know what would happen there.
Flu jabs at the surgery on Sunday morning.
A friend who is also at the same surgery, received a phone call from one of the partners offering their condolences on the death of her husband a couple of weeks ago. We were really surprised but she was so grateful. We thought that sort of thing had gone years ago.
I must add that the same surgery has really taken some stick on social media over the last few months but so far we have no complaints.

I saw this & I thought you may be interested! / Re: Samuel Taylor Ltd
