HELLO FORKERS!

KEF   I don't use mine much nowadays, but I'd be lost without it.  In times past I've made the children's clothes,  many many pairs of fully lined curtains and blinds, cushions, bedcovers, and clothes for myself, from plain and simple to posh frocks and evening wear.  Not done that for ages ...  when did I ever find the time?

Wonky loves Christmas Pud.  We had one in our fridge left over from last year - I took it to her yesterday

Morning all. -4°, the world is white here, frost not snow. Is it snow where you are Dove? ...

Yes, snow!  Loads of squealing and giggling children somewhere nearby - they've obviously been sent outside to make the most of it before it thaws. 

KEF   Google the make and model of your machine and 'threading' - there'll be a Utube video or diagram or something somewhere on the internet .

Good morning DD

This is the first year in ages that I won't be making puddings today (Stir Up Sunday) - we have some left from last year.  We also have some mincemeat left.  We were at MIL's last year and didn't eat a lot at home.

Temp last night went down to 0.2C in the back garden - think I need to do something about the dahlias ...

Was I the only one who felt that River Deep, Mountain High really didn't suit a jive?

Our next door neighbour at the last house had a pyracantha hedge - full of birds all the time - one year it was visited by a flock of waxwings who spent several hours stripping it of berries.  We watched from our bedroom window just a few feet away.  A wonderful hedge. 

However, do keep on top of the trimming of it if it's near a footpath - it's very spiny and squeezing past with a bicycle on your way to work in the morning can be a painful process
