First sit in my little park 💚 this year. Snow have just melted away, still a couple of snow piles nearby. Plants 🌱 are showing and I spot buds on the trees … and temps were above 10 C today😜.

Making of a blanket …

At the end of 2018 I started this blanket called Jennys blanket of hugs … absolutely fell in love with it at first sight. Stripes, dots and in some of my favourite colours.

Do you mend?

I do!

I like to think that I’m saving what I can on Mother Nature and not to forget the saves I’m making in my own wallet. Just because I get a hole on my sock … and some parts are just in perfect condition … why throw it away? Have not always been mending everything, just a tiny hole here and there and repairing jeans of course. Back then I always tried to match my mend and making it as invisible as possible. But have always felt it VERY boring and no fun, so everything have piled up in big mending piles! How fun is that? How about you … do you have mending piles! 😅

So some years ago I skipped that perfection and mend as I please. Much more fun, still not that overly fun, but way better than before.

Am using my grandmother trusty mending mushroom … but could need a better metal ring that holds everything in place. It have some damages so I need to be careful when placing my fabrics. But hey ho … it still works.
