Marilyn at Charminis and I did have a virtual meeting yesterday, and I did get some prep work done for the wooden shoe factory. As the saws are still in the Research & Development phase - I can't mimic the teeth of the saws well enough to my taste - I did some boring but necessary work towards the roof for the workshop.

Nothing to show today; it had been at least three weeks since our mini group got together, as Real Life caught up with all three of us. We finally met this past Wednesday. We are all rather pandemic-weary, just want to go back to normal social interactions!
Our house and contents are 27 or so years old, and the past few weeks we have had a number of small messes to deal with. Our refrigerator died in the middle of a serious heat-wave; who knew that you could no longer buy a fridge and get it the same or the next day? We spent an anxious Friday visiting every appliance store in our small city, and were quoted anywhere from three days to two weeks for delivery. At last we found a store that had a fridge in stock, and that agreed to deliver it, even though it was past hours and on a weekend. Thank heavens! It's not the fridge we would have chosen if we had had the time, but we can live with it.
The heat-wave left as abruptly as it came; one morning we woke up to find that our heating had come on automatically. We usually set this at 15C (about 60F) in the summer, and that night the temperatures went to 11C, in July! Two cork floors needed repairs; this is a noisy job. Then a toilet needed to be replaced. We hope all will be quiet for a while now. We also got our second Covid shots, but are now waiting to see if will indeed need a third in the autumn.
I've been trying to make two saws for the wooden shoe factory; the two I made during our meeting this past week are pretty good, but I'm not really satisfied with them. Therefore, I will continue to experiment.
Now, once I finish knitting the newest pair of socks, I can get back to minis!
