I love my new laundry machines; here is a load of colored clothes that I laundered and then dried outside on Monday. I also did one load of towels, machine dried. As I fold the dried laundry, I am always on the lookout for any mending that needs done.
Here's the mending I took care of this morning: a bathtowel with fraying sides, a pair of sleep pants with a split seam, a dish cloth with fraying edges, 2 Damask napkins with frayed areas from the turned down edges that came unstitched. The aforementioned were all repaired on a sewing machine.
My mending also included hand mending of this napkin, that mysteriously sprung multiple worn areas, almost holes.
Here it is mended
I mend on the underside, using as close of a color of thread as possible (I seem to possess every color of the spectrum!)
I have many Vera napkins by designer Vera Neumann.
