I Need a Pat on the Back...

because yesterday I plowed through this pile of mending/altering rather than sewing something new and fun. All of it was kids' clothing. I wasn't exactly looking forward to this, but it didn't turn out to be so bad. The most time-consuming part was changing the thread on the machines. I'm so often tempted to toss something that rips or gets a hole, but I'm usually thankful that I don't.

A woman at church asked if I would make some things for her to sell in her downtown framing shop. She likes to have some locally handmade things for sale, especially during the summer when tourist traffic is high. So, I'm going to be working on some bags and small things for her this week.


  1. Good for you on getting the mending done! I wish I was so inclined...ha, I'm not. Question about the Kwik Sew pjs in the previous post: Do the legs on the shorts run wide? Do you know how they compare to the KS Sewing for Children book? I love KS patterns, but I wasn't happy with the wide legs of the shorts on the last pair I made. BTW, the pink butterfly pajamas are very nice!

  2. Nice work--it feels good to get those piles taken care of. You are a good example and certainly deserve more than a pat on the back.
