It seem sewing stations are the flavour at the moment.
I had a lady ask me to repair her sewing station.

The construction of the station is very well done, however the choice of veneered particle board is not.

The station is worth about $600 to $900 from what I see on Horn furniture website.

https://www.horn.com.au/sewing/horn-furniture.aspx

So I emailed them to see if spare parts were available, as the whole floor had been damaged beyond repair.

While waiting to get a reply back I had a good look to determine if I could retrofit a floor.

It was possible sew I decided to fabricate a new one.

I cut and attached full supports instead of the original wedgies to permit fixing to.

Finished the externals with Orange Oil wood cleaner and them applied some Howards wax.

It was all ready to be returned when I fell off the back of my Ute.

Hang onto it for a few more days and you can sew your fern back together…. or stitch up the joker that tried to kill your plastic owl.

We’re back into stage 4, however, when/if we emerge, my old animal nighty is getting a tad tattered

and I might need help with a sewing table to tackle the replacement.

OMG this Kovit Kaper is getting a bit annoying isnt it?

Speaking of outfits I have been watching Vikings on netflix

Anyway if you supply me with your original smock and enough to make two more I will stitch you up no problems.
The fern is too heavy for me to lift even with 2 x good hands, might call the botanical Gardens and donate it

I am hopefully getting a quote tomorrow and then go pay him a visit no doubt he will take a fence, but too bad

It’s not so much the C19 as much as Chairman Dan... If you want to travel around Victoria, you need a special pass… a bloody tennis racquet or a damned Chinese passport... no Anzac Day marches, but the bloody dragon can roam the streets for Chinese New Year celebrations… though the bitching has started due to the latest lock down decree.

The lock-up is not an issue (I’m used to it)... sorry, lock-down is not and issue as I can make more puzzles (eat your heart out pottzy). They are forever evolving with more varied strains that the C19 virus,

The noughts and crossed version is proving to be popular, especially amongst former losers.

That owl looks pissed and that’s no hoot…

What was the story with the driver? Failed brakes, dodgy steering, too much vino or just a speeding little red car?

I was on pins and needles to see how this one turned out Rob. That’s a fine patch you stitched together there!

Damn… all this gushing towards a Queenslander and a plant... No one seems to care about the poor owl... wheres all those tree hugging plastic animal libertarians.

My new nightie is gonna have Thor, though not quite as thor as you are after your cheap trick of off the back of a truck!.

While you are incapacitated, trade in the new washing machine (men don’t wash) for a good PC and you can play Assassins Creed, Valhalla and enact vikings rather than watch it. Though you will need two good hands to handle the mouse and keyboard for all the battles and pillaging!

Many references are made of Ragnar in the game and his sons (including The Boneless) are featured. You get to be a big bad-ass and there are no trucks to fall off…

They are a tough lot these Vikings they portaged their boats up a cliff face and across land to avoid a French fort set up to repel them.

They didn’t wash too often by the looks!
I wondered as to the authenticity but there appears to be some truth in the legend.

Tough lot lots of rootin raidin and pillaging along with some fairly barbaric fighting and sacrifices, like a blood eagle.

Don’t be leaving and of your daughters unattended with them around!... their seed planting was legendary too.

I need a new PC as my C&C PC had died on me the last of the win XP platforms real pity. None of my C&C CDs or DVDs work on 10 or later.

That’s why I mentioned Assassins Creed, Valhalla (you need 10 and a fair PC)... you get to do the same rather than sit back and watch… day after day… and drink… hell drink and raid.

Unfortunately Flokie does not get a mention… but you can row, row, row your boat and can choose to stay away from shit creek...

Just think, you can take vengeance against your fern violator,

Apologies pottzy, I’m not inferring you drove the car… your house was the closest in the neighborhood.

PS. Under Win 10, you can emulate XP (virtual session) and run your C&C.. after you’ve Valhalla’d out.

The PC runs and XP emulator…

Looks like my extensive text reply has gone missing, not to worry… You don’t expect me to do your reading… hell, I won’t even do my own reading… I hire people for that.

The buzz word is virtual machine... but, just go and buy Valhalla and get your jollies that way. No fern killers in that game.

It’s people like that car driver that sent my old man to the dole queue…
