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.
This winter I have worn my socks both here and there …small holes and larger holes because of my own laziness … still have some to mend … but at least these got done ✅
And while I was on the mending mood I repaired some duvet covers … have some very old favourites that I really love and have bought second hand … 💗 … one of them already had a mend so I guess I will continue to mend them until they fall apart! I’m not short on fabrics and scraps … 😂
I also mended a pair of woollen wrist warmers I made for my daughter Linda years ago. They got lost in my move but found them while searching for other things … yay … guess it was these that triggered my mending week!
And I must say these mends have filled me with content and provided me with peace this week. So will I continue to mend … I sure will! 💗
