    I am so sorry for your loss. I do understand how you feel. I have three of my own and they’re all housecats. My two girls turned one on sunday and fizz my white deaf cat is coming five. I lost two cats last year within two days. Riley my rescue cat i found dead on the floor, he was a good age but no one knew how old he was and then two days later my gizmo passed away aged seventeen. I was with her at the end and she passed peacefully, it did’nt stop the pain though. she lived the longest out of all my cats and had been with my through thick and thin. I was heartbroken and miss all my cats to this day. My heart goes out to you. My cats are loved to bits and i know they love me, they make my house a home. Take care and god bless. have you heard of the rainbow bridge?? Its a lovely thought!! I believe all our loved animals go there and we will see them again one day xx

      I ‘ve got a Singer 1 . Spent all morning trying it out – great buttonholes ! Made a simple sewing machine cover. Of course I’d tidied up this week and put all oddments of fabric in the loft – so had to climb up and bring down a bag of bits.

    That’s not so funny… How did you break those? Cartwheeling across the Cairngorms?

      I was walking along Cleveleys Prom ( after being ice skating ) carrying a heavy rucksack in the teeth of an Atlantic gale , when a gust caught me – I teetered / ran ? , tripped and went SPLAT with my left arm up over my head – this protected my face. 2 docs told me it wasn’t broken just deep soft tissue injury – put ice on keep it moving and take pain killers. the latter was a NO NO after 2 days due to tummy upsets . I persevered until I decided that I wasn,t getting enough movement. The tale unfolds……….

      This is a chore- as I knitted this jumper in exchange for an animal cage ( for a dog in a car ) The jumper turned out too large and the cage too small ! So I am reknitting the said jumper – but am left with a useless item in exchange ! Motto — check out barter items FIRST !!

    Hi kate. Hope you’re well. I haven’t bought any burdas for ages. Unfortunately borders has closed down and finding out which WH Smith sells them seems like a mission, all the one’s at the big stations here have a really bad selection of magazines in my opinion. – Anyway, don’t need more stuff piling up…

      The scenery is of the East Coast of Scotland just north of Aberdeen — where I used to live. Funny there is a cat in a village about 20 miles away that is identical too !! We chose her from a cat sanctuary after the death of our 19 year old cat !

      It was great – I miss ice skating so much as I skated from the age of 8 to 58 ! Thinking of going back BUT a persistent hip problem is making me cautious — caused ( they think ) by an accident on the ice that I had at 15 ! The gluteous maximus is not functioning as it should ! May be it’s old age ?

      Everything finally went very well – he had the rock n roll music he asked for and friends to talk plus I did a bit. Many many people turned up. Then after at the dance hall we had a tea , played Terry’s favourite music from the past and I had put up a " timeline " of his life. A good time actually – what he wanted.

      It’s a pity that you don’t have a sewing class at high school — even as an extra-curricular activity. I gained most of my knowledge from a very strict but wonderful needlework teacher from the age of 12 to 16. Later I went to college to do Dress and design with home economics and went on to become a teacher myself. At lunchtimes I would take extra classes for those wishing to learn any needlework technique.
      It is good to have a relaxing subject to fall back on.

    Thank you for your comment on my waistcoat! I searched for ages for the frog fastenings (I found them on Ebay, so not my credit!).

    The background in my picture is from the Lake District, view over Lake Windermere. I had a great time there one Easter, so it brings back good memories…
