It certainly is a mystery. Where are all those other blocks you made? BTW, love your socks.

Let’s not forget the Teflon foot that comes supplied with certain sewing machines. I haven’t ever used one but I might do in future.

Off to work today...in my front room.

Thank you everyone. DD1 made me a birthday cake. There is still some gin left in the bottle. A friend sent me an email with 60 reasons to rejoice at being 60 with her own annotations for each reason. Loved that. I took a walk by the coast, listened to my audio book and steam cleaned the bathroom floor (not all at one time). DD just returned from a Tesco expedition. Must check out what she’s bought.

Happy Birthday, @Jane  :toast: :flower: :cake:

Whole Earth make a peanut, walnut and pecan butter. That's really scrummy. I OD'd on PB&J as a child/teen so prefer the PB with honey, mashed banana or on it's own spread on crackers. Ooooh I'm suddenly hungry.  :P

Pasta with turkey bolognese for dinner tonight. I had made a pot and froze portions for just such a day.

I've been for my walk, put in my hours at work and now my upper back is aching. I'll have to re-think my work set-up.

Just got off the phone with BA. I had cancelled my flight just after the announcement was made that the US would stop all UK citizens from entering the country. This was before BA officially cancelled the flight. I had applied for a voucher online because it was either that or re-book. That was a stupid thing for me to do. Now can't get a refund. However, I can re-book (not sure from what date  -<) and if BA cancels the flight, I can get money back. Sounds utterly ridiculous to go through all that. Anyway, I will be re-booking the same itinerary hopefully by the end of the year but I have until March 2021 so all's not lost. I'm just concerned they'll jack up the prices and will need to pay extra.

Cocktail hour soon. I made myself a lovely gin cocktail yesterday evening and I am NOT a drinker. New bad habit?  Make that a double. Cheers.  :gin:

I started to watch Wendy Gardiner’s The Sewing Toolbox hoping to pick up a few tips. I didn’t realise she lived in Portsmouth.

Sewing Machines / Re: Big disappointment

Even though I can understand your dissatisfaction I am happy with my own DX7. Yes,  there is a lot of plastic and I would have preferred metal presser feet. The needle threader, that’s a novelty for me. I have nothing to compare it to and I can always thread the machine manually. The DX7 does get very good reviews despite all this as does the F600 which it superseded.  I still have an old mechanical Bernina. My electronic Bernina that was broken and traded in weighed a ton. It did me proud since 1987 but I simply couldn’t justify the price of a newer equivalent. In truth I haven’t used the Juki much so I can’t tell you how I will feel in a years time. At the moment, no buyer’s remorse.
