    Mama tried to teach me to sew but I was never much good at it. She could do it all -- made all the clothes for herself, my sister, and me; cutwork embroidery for table linens, smocking, slipcovers, bound buttonholes, applique, quilts ... years later I realized I actually had absorbed some of it as I was able to do some sewing for a great-niece, including putting in a zipper ... I was quite proud of that! I've always preferred crochet to sewing, and really should order some yarn from Amazon or Walmart ...

    Hugs.
    No rhyme or reason at times.
    So frustrating.
    What appears to work well some days doesn’t on others. And you have been so good. Doesn’t make any sense.
    It can send me in a sudden downward spiral, like you feel deflated.
    You are doing brilliantly. Remind yourself that.
    So hugs for you.

    Morning each. @Cumberland deep deep joyloads in the follocks for that excellent 5.8. @SaskiaKC love the image of your momma - 90 y.o MIL same skill set. Buys fleeces, combs, spins and knits them into all sorts even now and goes to schools, libraries and outdoor fairs to demo. I coaxed a 5.2 from the meter with no help from Orban. Meat has been cooking overnight, 2 granddaughters smiling at me with 2 more coming later if the spots aren't chicken pox. Elsie and me seem to have come to an uneasy truce recently despite her huge basket of deplorables taking up the hallway. Yes Elbow, 1 day like this will do for now.

    Good morning folks, 5.9 on the dice, that's a good weekend score for me.

    Off to that there London this morning to meet up with a homesick grandchild, I think we are going to the science museum but plans may change.

    Gosh PM, if you're deflated just think how that chicken feels :woot:, good scores come and go maybe you just need a new pot of strips, order some fives next time ;).

    Good morning and a late start for me today. 5.9 greeted me after eventually falling into bed at 3 am after getting home from a long, tiring gig in Cheshire last night so still only 4 hours sleep.

    A quick scan through all the post seemed to show a spattering of ups and downs from the pet Draculas. The mysteries of BG continues to confound, surprise and disappoint, thank goodness for this forums support.

    Enjoy what ever you are doing on this soggy day. @ianpspurs hope those spotty ones are able to join you today.

    And I forgot to say everyone, including @SaskiaKC and @PenguinMum because I was the first customer of the day (I went back for the shocking pink fleece) I had a choice of one of 5 blown up balloons to pop. There was a prize written inside each one.

    I chose the pink balloon. I am scared of balloons and was unable to pop it. The sales assistant was also too afraid to pop it. So an announcement over the tannoy for some brave soul who was not frightened of balloons. She came boldly charging forwards, stabbed the balloon with a ferocity. A piece of paper fell out.

    I had won...wait for it...a shocking pink and purple silk scarf...

    :)

    Respect to you both! I was never brave enough to skip a day off school.

    Hug for the sleep problem. Spotty one and brother are the ones we see most and she was here Wednesday so no problems there. I'm guessing there will be a facetime if they don't come - biggest concern is the 5 month old catching it. Elsie Hifat is a very fickle mistress so the roller coaster numbers are par for the course. Hope the gig went down well.
