    Spiders love making homes and having children in my outdoor lighting, especially pricey solar lights. Components occasionally get mucked up so I go in and try to repair them. Between the bugs and my nimble fingers the hair-like wires sometimes require re-soldering. Other times de-rusting or inserting a piece of aluminum foil will do the trick of giving new life! It's near impossible to find duplicate replacement lights years later so repair is the the only feasible solution.

    Maybe I am older than I wish. I can hand sew just about anything. I was never able to use a sewing machine. I can't even get the thread/bobbin on correctly.

      Some of those machines are VERY temperamental: if all seventeen contraptions (+/-) aren't all working in unison "It Just Ain't Gonna Work!" . I remember my mom's machine and the internal bobbin had to be in just so and then it's thread had to pop up in such a way to marry the top thread spool or it just wouldn't work right. Tune-ups help and so do classes. If you ever plan on getting another machine try finding a place that offers classes, hands on instruction, or, at least, test drives before purchasing. Today's machines are much more user-friendly, albeit much less sturdy.
      P.S. I wish I could hand sew neatly ~ I love the beauty and the independence but My Stiches look as if I was making something for the movie "The Nightmare Before Christmas" or stitching up a zombie voodoo doll mouth; quite unsightly.
      On the other side of the spectrum: I once made a set of sheets & pillow cases on an industrial machine in less than a few minutes, and they looked SwEEt!
