As usual, whenever I fold laundry, as I did this morning, I am on the lookout for any repairs. Discovered one of my linen napkins that was unraveling along the edge and a hole starting.
A quick search, thanks to yesterday's organizing efforts, unearthed a random thread of a close enough green to hand stich the edge together. I grabbed the needed green thread from this "ball of thread" that somehow, mysteriously, was included in amongst my sewing notions. No worries, while many would choose to toss this mess out, I have set it aside and will continue to turn to it for quick hand sewing repairs, ideally in the correct color, depending upon task, but often, my repairs will accept any old color.
I did run the hole area under the machine to best reinforce it. I have always used cloth napkins; this is so much nicer at the table, and has saved me a slew of cash over the years. I am especially fond of my collection of Vera Newman napkins:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vera_Neumann
