The last three weeks were not a total wash. I was able to work my way through a towering stack of mending. The amazing thing this time around is that everything still fit the rightful owner. Other things, besides clothing, end up in my pile. The dollie belongs to one of the girls and is almost a completely new dollie with all the patchwork it has received. I whipped up a little sleeping bag for her that was requested,along with the mending, by the dollie's owner. The purse is a wonderful vintage find that just needed a dab of hot glue to keep going.
Jeans are always in the pile. A little wonder under and some zig-zag stitching and you have girls requesting patches on their new jeans!:)
