I only wish I could help but 1.  I am not a morning person at all.  2.  I wouldn't have a clue how to do things like most of you know I am clueless about a lot of things computerwise/internetwise.
I do hope some kind person will offer.....

Anyway, morning all - just finished drying my hair, for a few hours it will be 'normal' - forgotten what that is.
Weather here is dull and cold - wonder will we see the sun today?
No walk for me today as I need to dig out my proper insoles and wear them.  After walking in Hotter laced up shoes with their insole I am a cripple today.  Will I never learn.  I had thought that my foot problems were almost over but no.   I gotta behave myself.
A bowl of soup for lunch and I have no idea what's for dinner this evening.
Hope you all have a good day.

Afternoon @Catllar .....yes, what I did was a trial run on the excess fabric...zig-zagged the raw edge being careful not to stretch (was trying it without paper to not have to gather the bits).
Then turned it up and just zig-zagged again.
So just repeated all that on the three vests and have to say it was so much better than retaining the original hem.
Many thanks for your help. Grateful to you!

Morning everyone - weather here is cool but as I speak it is getting lighter and I think the sun may actually make it today.....thankfully as I have handwashed some things including two gilets and they are spinning around as I type.
@Sandra - don't do the dirty stuff.....just don't.
I have to see my housebound woman today - with a plate of goodies for her tea...that will also include a short walk to her.
Have a good day all.

@Tamnymore - lots of folks, including myself, say 'jings' - could be the Ulster Scots influence!

Hello everyone - we have a dull day - it is very cold - we were promised some afternoon sunshine but it doesn't look like it's going to appear at all.

Off to the post box for a walk and visit Spar on the way home for a few things.

Have a good day all.

....@Tamnymore - doubly difficult over here, protocol being tested big time.  As you well know we do not want to be separated from the mainland (or at least the majority don't  LOL) and it is a real pain.....being discussed in Stormont today - discussed is likely a polite word for what will probably turn out to be a shouting match!!

Morning everyone - it was a very misty morning, more like September really, but the sun somewhere is burning it off and we are supposed to have a sunny afternoon - so washing going on the line soon (what joy instead of inside).
I have another card to make - an order - and also some for myself to send.
Other than that some knitting if I can - seem to do  more knitting than sewing at the moment but DH has asked me to sew a pocket on his 'gardening' coat - exciting or what.
Have a good day all and see you at 7 for the party.

Indeed, Happy Birthday to all of Us!!
4 years, gosh the time has flown.
Grateful thanks to all the whizz kids who know how to set up a forum etc etc.
As others have said I would be lost without my TSP family.
Many happy returns to us!!!
