This week's mending
I got to this week's mending yesterday afternoon and evening. An aqua bath towel that I seem to be constantly mending (but the terry is still very plush so a worthwhile endeavor), a pair of DD's sweat pants that she had been walking on, creating holes at the hem of the pant legs (bothered me more than her) now are shortened and have clean hems; a pair of DD's legging had a hole whip stitched shut on the leg where it got caught on a clothes rack at work; a pair of DD's sleep shorts had a seam give out, now freshly sewn shut with a double seam; a hand towel from my bath needed reinforcing along one side edge; a kitchen wash rag needed to have a side edge repaired, turned under and sewn shut.
I also had some hand sewing to do as we watched tv together after supper: 2 of DS's socks developed holes; one of my bras had the lace panel and underseam of one of the cups come loose from the underwire below.
It's never ending. This morning, DS presented me with a stuffed dog that has a seam blown out under it's neck. I noted that it also needs some more stuffing before I sew it shut. I'll take care of this mini project later today.
