I love using a treadle machine - very satisfying sounds

That would've been a huge investment back in those days Hosta!  Is it a treadle one?  I used to use my granny's treadle machine - wonder what Ma did with it

Runnybeak ((hugs)) no probs - you just look after yourself - you've had an awful shock too.  When your son comes to write his Victim's Statement make sure he includes the effect it's had on all his family - you are all victims of this awful event ((hugs)).

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.
