A'tissue, a'tissue, we all fall down....

I've been having problems with my sewing machine. My poor lil Brother has been looping on the back of whatever I've sewn for a while. Tonight I stripped him down, oiled him up (oeer!), and and poured over every manual I had (Just the one actually!). Apparently, my bobbin tension was wrong. I think I've fixed it! I did the happiest dance for a while!! My camo skirt is back on line!

I spent most of the day prior to this crocheting: I claimed TwitzidBlood in the OWS for a decorative tissue box cover and a surprise. I made her a plastic carrier bag caddy (which was th surprise) to match the tissue box cover.

I keep promising to make myself one of these.

She likes nature colours so I made that the theme. The handle of the bag caddy does up with a button so she can attach it on something aswell as hooking it over.

I sort of made the designs up as I went along.
And here are the bottle cap pincushion, needle case and paper beads I made for Mini. I posted them this morning so I hope she gets them soon.

I received my car tax disc through the post! I'd ordered it online to save the half hour wait in the post office that tax renewal day usually entails. The only thing that bothers me is that when you go to the post office, you have to show all your documentation, but when you do it online, you just have to put in the code you get on your renewal reminder form. So, the thing that bothers me is that they are so fastidious about documentation...if you do it online, do they check up on you? Is there now somebody in a government office somewhere checking up on my insurance, MOT certificates and all that stuff? Is it all in a big file about me? Big brother is watching you people!
