Today I spent some time trying to thread my trusty needle
and all to no avail. I bit the tip of the thread a couple of times
to try and facilitate easy threading. In a desperate bid to
get stitching I even trimmed the thread in case it was a bit
frayed and that this was the problem but all to no avail.
It was a bit dumpsey outside so I put on a light
and the pin dropped (to use a stitching metaphor) .......
..... I had the bloody thing upside down and was trying to
thread the point!
Should have gone to SpecSavers.
