It doesn’t need to be personal illness that may interfere with progress. It might be illness of a loved one. Over the course of the last two weeks, I experienced some of each. As I type, I am still experiencing personal illness (darn cold). Let me up date you on my progress up until today. 😀
I backstitched the binding to the front of the pillowslip, being careful to miter the corners.
Referencing Bernadette Banner’s YouTube video on Hand Sewn Buttonhole Stitch – Historical Techniques, I created the buttonholes. 😀
Because I was home ill on Monday, I took some time to indulge in Monday Mending! Recently I ordered this:
this is the SINGER Stocking Darner. I ordered it from The Singer Featherweight.com website. There were instructions in the box and it turned out to be a neat little helper that allowed me to darn two socks on my treadle machine. I also hand stitched a bum seam on a pair of pants. Yeah for me and Mending Monday!
My most fun success was to actually get the “Easter” sweaters to Gson #1 & #2…finally.
#1 will be able to wear his forever and #2 will grow out of his way too soon. sigh.
See you next week!
