Well, talking of my first passion - quilting - my tools really let me down. First of all that pretty new brother sewing-machine doesn't catch the trhead anymore and therefore doesn't really make stitches (!) and my older Singer can't remember how to do zig-zag (which seems to be very related to the other problem). So even simple things like repairing a trouser of a friend gets pretty complicated.
But the walls are progressing and look pretty good. Success!!
So all is set for having a wonderful weekend.
