Old and New

New quilts and patterns galore, as we have been busy, busy (that is, Me and AitchBee) in preparation for the Scottish Quilt Show. Stand all set up today, and my usual Old Girl ready to demo tomorrow

And, with a bit of luck, she won't come home with me, as she is all ready to go to a new home

Pedalling away merrily...

(Edited to Add, all gone now, many thanks for asking. Bookmark here for further clearouts)

John has been Sorting-with-a-capital-S the motors and pedals. They appear to have been breeding in the dark, do not remember taking all these in..
So, here we have an interesting row
Free for postage, UK only please. Usable, complete, need wiring-up
(Edit - 2 have gone already. john @raindropkites.co.uk to request)


Now, I've been busy too. There was a most humungously messy pile of little toolboxes and extension tables under the Big Table, and someone wanted a particular one, so I had to pull these all out, sort, count, remake the page.. 2 days worth, but worthwhile, as there is nothing more difficult to use than a machine with its table missing. Sadly, we could not match the lacking machine. I'll keep looking. I do run a huge "Wants" list

In the process I threw away all the scruffy, oily, disgusting card boxes, washed all the plastic ones, and found all sorts of treasures. Here's the table at about the half-way stage, and HERE is the remade page of boxes
Tables HERE
And this little charmer came with a Frister Rossmann

Note "bodkins" - and who would have thought that Timothy Whites ( a chain chemist) would have sold matches...

Elderly Underwear




Preservation is a wonderful thing, but this interesting waistband with its label was surely not the only piece of cloth that could have been left under a blameless 99k

No, and Definitely No

It amazes me what people will consider plugging into the mains.. Don't they know that electricity bites?
