Sowing

Have been doing lots of sowing... have a list of clothes with broken bits and have fixed up a load of them. The biggest task was to sow up the insides of a huge beautiful black coat that empiress left here in March, the insides were torn and I couldn't actually wear it because my arms couldn't find their way into the sleeves! But... my favorite loose t-shirt no longer has a hole in the shoulder, my trousers have pockets without holes and my black silky button up shirt now has all it's buttons back. Etc.

I discovered that I can sow very quickly with my left hand! I'm training myself to be ambidextrous :-)

My list only has two items on it now... I know there must be more. There's also 2 zips I need to repair but I need professional to do those (one of them is a big new rock zip on a pair on new rocks).

Church of England: The state it's in

http://www.vexen.co.uk/books/furlong.html

Here are some quotes and notes taken from "C of E: The Stats It's In" by Monica Furlong. This book is a history of the Chuch of England, it's foundation, the endless conflicts between itself and other Christians and eventually of it's final establishment with England, and then about it's modern decline in the face of secularism. It also explains the structure of the Church of England and the conflicts within it.
