I went to see my favourite dentist yesterday for my annual checkup. Pleased to report that no work needs to be done, all ok. Jim is a nice young man, he remembered me from last time, quick chat, more patients waiting. Cost £21.60.
After that I had a mooch round Brigg, did some shopping at Tesco, and called in to see a friend who works in a sewing shop. I found some nice embroidery silks in a bargain box and chose five for £2. There was a poster up about forthcoming workshops and one caught my eye, so I booked it. Make a Christmas table centre, raw edge applique, patchwork, and free motion quilting. £48 for six hours, includes all materials, and a festive buffet lunch, with 25% off any fabric purchased on the day. Something to do on a miserable winters day. I like the social aspect of it as well, chatting with like minded people.
Looking at the programme there might be some other workshops that I might be interested in. The 2019 list will be out soon. I quite fancy free machine embroidery as I have not been that successful when I have tried it.
In an hour or so my car is booked in for it's MOT test. I am now using a local garage, as they seem fair. Keeping my fingers crossed. I'll have a bite to eat before I go.
I asked a friend for guitar lessons, he wasn't too keen, quickly showed me two cords, so it's yoootoob tutorials for me. I can see it's going to take a while, with my brain slowing down due to old age, ha ha. ilona
