Is there too much 'stitching' to pick out and re sew with a suitable colour?
Yes, it would mean taking it all to pieces and starting again, much too much effort! All the seams are double stitched so there are 2 lines of stitching to each seam.....

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Over 10 years ago I bought a linen dress and jacket in a pale green to wear at my nephew's wedding. Pale green isn't my colour and though I have worn it for another wedding since then it just sits in the wardrobe year in year out. I bought some blue fabric dye at the weekend and have spent a large p...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Yep, just lots of fluff! I have another item of a similar vintage, probably late 1920's or early '30s. It's a Smith Corona "Special" folding portable typewriter which looks as though it would work with no problem ....not quite as much fluff. It belonged to my Dad's stepmother who was a "stenographer...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Mum had an electric one in the '50s but it was very difficult to get it to operate smoothly, the foot control was a bit sticky!
I've just realised from looking at models on eBay that the machine tips back on the base.... I've never looked underneath.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I've just checked the model and serial number on mine, it is a No 99 model with a serial number dating it to around 1939.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

No it's hand cranked, but in a leatherette type case rather than the wooden one. I remember those shuttle type bobbins, I think I had a treadle machine that used them.

I still use my old Singer, but I think it will be 1930's. I left the treadle machine in the house in Scotland when we moved.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Imagine my surprise when there are several pictures lifted from OGFB of images I've submitted. No wonder you don't need to carry your ID around with you. Every Chinaman must be saying 'there goes that crazy Englishman who wears a teapot cosy on his head. :laugh5: :laugh5: Once seen, never forgotten!

Sue, my brother invested in a Holiday Property Bond many years ago now and book with them at least a couple of times a year both in this country and abroad. They say the properties are always excellent and the family can use any allowance that they don't.

Nice low flypast this afternoon as i was muck collecting in the field. 2 planes about 5 minutes apart flying in a north easterly direction. Not sure about the first one, though it could have been a Dakota, the second was possibly a Hurricane. :smile:

Re: Plaques

Have you considered a Facebook page devoted to your photos Plaques? I can guess what your first response would be but it might be worth a try. You can make it a private group and upload the photos into as many galleries as you want.

Yes, they have been staying out since the end of March. I needed them to be out of their stables before I took that trip to Devon in early April. Now they have shed their thick winter coats they get cold quickly if it's wet and windy.

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

I arrived home from a trip to Harrogate at about 3.30pm yesterday as it was just settling in to rain properly. By 4.30pm it was tipping it down with a rising wind from the north east. We put the hens away but I decided against feeding the ponies to avoid getting soaked (they get a couple of handfuls...
