Me. On patching. In the Guardian.

Me. On patching. In the Guardian.

Eeeeeekkkkkkkk!!!!! How excited am I? More excited than a Make Do and Mend addict in a vintage fabric shop, that’s how. I had an e-mail from a journalist at the Guardian a couple of weeks ago, asking if I would be interested in writing a short piece on patching for them, as part of a … Continue reading

A Mending Mountain

There must have been something in the air this weekend. I FINALLY stopped procrastinating and tackled my ever growing pile of mending.

A mending moment..

Amongst all the frantic making that has been going on for Christmas (remind me to start in June next year), I had to pause briefly last night for a few ‘running repairs’… Firstly, the buggy snuggle. SmallSmall seems to like kicking this off and the zip has ripped: So, I pinned it all back together, … Continue reading
