Workbasket – Progress From Behind the Scenes

Flower of the Month Embroidery Block - January The last time I worked on the Flower of the Month Embroidery was (groan of dismay) October 27, 2020 (Goodness, that was almost a full year ago). It wasn't the lack of WIPs that caused me to work on it. It was the lack of bringing any… Continue reading Workbasket – Progress From Behind the Scenes

Monthly Mending – July 2021

This started as a mend before going array. The three little snaps, that held the wrap closed at the cleavage, needed to be moved just a bit. After trying on the dress and marking the desired new placement of the snaps, I settled in to carefully remove them. Not carefully enough, apparently, because I clipped… Continue reading Monthly Mending – July 2021

Monthly Mending ~ May 2021

DW's favorite mask broke the little metal band inside. We can't be having that. The lining was opened at the seam to be able to get to the broken part. Once open it was easy to remove the old one and replace it with a new one. Then, using white thread, closed the seams. Viola!… Continue reading Monthly Mending ~ May 2021

Mending Monday ~ Shirt, Bag, & Boots

A little hole in the back of a staple of my wardrobe, a black turtleneck (I have several). The repair looks much more rough than it looks in real life. Also IRL, the dog hair doesn't show up so much. ๐Ÿ˜‰ This was a "stitch in time" scenario. By fixing this little hole while still… Continue reading Mending Monday ~ Shirt, Bag, & Boots

Mending Madness

The cloth laundry bag folds over the edge of the metal basket. DW expressed his displeasure with how it didn't stay where it was supposed to, and that it kept falling into the basket. Being that I had a bunch of left over elastic from mending the fitted sheet, I decided to fix this too.… Continue reading Mending Madness

Mending Monday ~ Gloves & Grocery Bag

We have been running A LOT this month because of the Taji 100 challenge. On one of our runs, DW noticed that there was a hole in a finger seam. All better now. ๐Ÿ˜€ Not an exciting fix, but it is done and one less thing in the local landfill. The seam was closed with… Continue reading Mending Monday ~ Gloves & Grocery Bag

Mending Monday

While folding laundry I noticed that the finished edge of a sleeve was coming undone (if there isn't actually a cuff, is it still called a cuff? Or is it a sleeve hem?). Not having a machine that sews a "stretchy stitch", I carefully sewed the hemmed cuff edge while slightly stretching the fabric. The… Continue reading Mending Monday

Mending

1. I do not like being cold, it hurts my joints. If it is cold, wet or windy I really have no desire to go running. Running in the cold isn't really a huge deal. In fact, when I run in the cold if feels pretty good once I warm up. The cold actually keeps… Continue reading Mending

Mending Monday

A torn pocket and popped underarm seam in a co-worker's coat repaired. Remember the fix of the sewing machine drawers? It has been on going. Glue, clamp, glue something else, clamp, glue something else, clamp. Not a difficult fix, but takes a little more time. The glue needs dry time and with the Christmas crafting… Continue reading Mending Monday

Mending Monday

Between Christmas crafting and traveling, not a lot of mending has gotten done. I only managed to repair one item. A bag that was part of swag from races past. It has been used to take gear to gym. A much less bulky alternative to a HUGE gym bag. It seems like such a little… Continue reading Mending Monday
