One day, some time after the conversation that triggered it, the mending arrived. A LOT of mending! In fact, I’ve taken to calling this “a big mending commission” just for fun. Friends handed over their mending pile and I’m working my way down through it gradually.
There is darning (and in this case, I took in the side seams and sleeve seams–gulp). First the side seams…
Then the actual darning.
Lots of jeans patching…
Skirt zipper mending….
Serious feature patching: on small jeans I rip out the side seam, apply the patch, turn the edges on the right side, stitch in position and then re stitch the side seam.
And yes! There is more! For another day…

I love to sit and mend, I save my mending up, then sit and mend for a morning or afternoon. There is something so satisfying about it. Mind you your mending is so much neater than mine!
Eh, luckily there is no competition. I like mending too–it is super satisfying to return garments to use I think!
