Got the tape, the thread and the machine, yey, but now the thingy is broken to wind - oh, yes, the bobbin, that's it - the tread onto, and I can only find one, so I am thwarted in my determination to start on the curtains today. Not happy. Wanted to get started. Still in the attic searching for that one elusive box that I simply cannot lay my hands on and am starting to worry is missing. It was at someone's house I think, but where it is now I have no idea. And it has precious stuff in it that I miss. Woe is me!! Cold no better........sniff, sniff.
