I just took a break from my mending. Yes this weekend it is mending – boring! – to write all your names from last week’s Give away post on pieces of paper, put them all in a hat (actually a bowl that had two cookies in it previously and now holds nothing but folded names and crumbs) and pull out the winner of the Chaco Liner Pen and the Wonder Tape.
Let me show you… almost real time!
Just in case the video doesn’t work or you can’t read my printing, here’s up close…
The Material Lady! Congratulations!
I will see if I can get your email from my WordPress site and email you for your address. If I take too long, don’t hesitate to contact me, I have an email contact form on my “About” page, you could always send me your address that way.
Thank you again everyone for reading and commenting on my stories for the past two years and I also thank you for posting your own stories for me to read!
Now back to my mending.
So this is RTW. My daughter has a lovely, warm brown coat (quilted and lined inside) perfect for the coming winter. I think it made it through one season then the zipper jammed and broke.
Picking the old zipper out.
And now with the new zipper sewed in.
All fixed! And it didn’t take much (new zipper: $4.50 CAN).
Next I have to sew the buttons back on her bomber jacket, another RTW. These buttons were sewed on with that usual “pull the thread and the button will fall off” technique. You know the one!
I told myself today, if I get my chores done I can go back to some “real” sewing!
You must have an example of RTW that wasn’t RTW until you made the necessary repairs – anything to share?
Thank you all for playing my Give away game and Congratulations again to “The Material Lady” for the win!
