Re: Record for unfinished craft stuff??

Hmmm ... there's the cherries tapestry I started about 26 years ago age about seven, for a pincushion (honestly, attention span of a gnat) :roll: ... ... the shirt pattern I cut out a mere seventeen years ago intending to make me smart for my first 'job' or rather work experience ... ... The feet of...

Make guitar & mandoilin straps?

Hello :wave: Tis the season of even more singing with the children at school that usual, and I have no strap for either my guitar or mandolin. My arms ache! I play sitting down at home but that's asking for trouble with 420 children wriggling about :iconbiggrin: Just wondered if anyone had any ideas...

Re: Fruit teas and tisanes

I love spearmint & chamomile together, also love sage for a sore throat and lemonbalm is nice for headaches. I've not much experience of making teas from dried fruit but I like rhubarb, lemon & ginger as a cordial ... though that's another winter warmer one, not really refreshing like you asked for ...

Re: Anybody Survived Taking Iron Tablets?

Aaaaaaaaaaaargh the dreaded iron tablets :shaking: I like Floradix but can't afford it all the time so take a bottle every couple of months or so. I take regular vitamins and minerals with iron in and try & have a big green fest at least a couple of times a week e.g. piles of spinach/ watercress. Br...

Ladies: Spatial awareness problems pre-period?!

Hello, after tearing myself away from the settee watching monarch of the glen I have just reversed my car into the wheelie bin. If hubby was here he would have realised by now that my period is due :roll: Why at this time every month do I crash around the place like a 'baby rhinocerous', covering my...

Re: get the right zipper foot or put zip in by hand?

Keith!This is good news. I have no idea why you need a special foot for zips but every time I tell anyone what I'm doing they say "Have you got a zipper foot" and I say "No" and they tut-tut and shake their heads.

I am happy to hear you can use a normal foot.

:cheers:
