Oh No Another Fail!!

The first attempt at the ring pillow has joined the table runner in the bin, the gold thread just kept breaking........I do not understand sewing machines, my 12000 coped with the gold metallic thread no problem, this one.....forget it. I also had problems with the thread when doing a sample lavender bag. This is not the first machine I have had a thread problem with, one of my early Janome machines hated it. I spoke to the lady who ordered the pillow, I am going to try it with self colour, fingers crossed it works, otherwise thats cash down the drain for the fabric, and no cash for me!! Something else I will not be doing again.

The inspector was supposed to come this morning to look at the japanese knotweed to see if its safe to cut it down and put the base of the new shed over where it was. There is no sign of any new growth and its 2 years since it was treated.

DB spent the morning in the garden, he has cut the back grass, rain is forecast for later and it is supposed to rain all day tomorrow.

Beef stew, dumpling and veg for supper. Out of fresh veg so it will be tinned carrots and frozen peas.

I defrosted some ham for sandwiches for lunch, I made a loaf yesterday, so sliced it, froze all but 4 slices which went into the sarnies.

BP taking is not going well, when I got up it was really high, even shocked me.......it has gone down since but not much, guess the Ramipril is not doing the job. Hmmmmm
