Remember that mending pile I unearthed a few months back? Today seemed like a good day to choose a project. I pulled out this toddler quilt that I bought when I was pregnant with Sela because it was just the kind of quilt I told myself I could start with. When I got started on quilting. I really love it. I can't believe it's been out of commission for YEARS because it came open at a seam. So - today - it took me all of 5 minutes to thread a needle and mend it. And now - back in play!
|Sela mended the ball she sewed for Linus for his first|
birthday. Check out this link to make a ball - or a
pumpkin pincushion. It was a great project for a
beginning sew-er & a great use of scraps!
I like the feel of "tending." It feels meditative. Slow and methodical and thoughtful.
