Now that I'm in a better frame of mind having got Tom's horrible consultant and my Arthur sorted I have started back on my needlework.
I couldn't find any enthusiasm for it while things were all up in the air and we were both in the doldrums a bit.
So, I though I would make a start on getting the fabric journal put together.
A light bulb moment said that it could be a good idea to use the serger to neaten the ends of the pages and use some of my multi coloured cottons.
This meant re threading the serger, Whoooooaa!
Every time I change the cottons I know that I will have trouble.
AND I DID.
Its taken most of the morning to sort it out and I had to get in my trusty mechanic (aka Tom) who has infinite patience (unlike me) to sort it out.
Straying from the serger for a minute I'll tell you that I'm the kind of person who only likes the good bits, lol
I once had a sort of lambretta scooter but only wanted to ride it.
I didn't want to put petrol in or all the other bits and I'm like that with any machine.
So you see why I got in the mechanic. ha ha.
Please to say he has put everything right and its working fine now.
I have quite a few pages now with a couple more in the pipe line.
Above is the edge that I was going to finish with the serger but after a lot of trial and error I think I may hand finish.
Thanks to all who commented on the Arthritis, I guess most people have it and it's a case of living with it.
When I look around I realise how lucky we are after all, we could have worse to cope with.
We are both still able to see, use our hands and laugh together, that's a lot isn't it?
even if we do walk around the supermarket like the couple on the road signs, lol
