Today I’m spending my precious 30 minutes of sewing…mending. I hate mending but I have to do it today. Here’s why:
- My down comforter has sprung a leak, resulting in me waking up the past two mornings and having to spend 15-20 minutes picking small feathers out of my hair.
- This morning while getting dressed, I was snipping a few stray threads off my black full skirt and snipped a hole into it, the hole is located about an inch from the hem so I think I ‘ll just shorten the whole skirt.
- Yesterday while playing in a pet store a parrot ate a button off my favorite blouse!
Number 3 may have to wait because I can’t seem to find the spare button that came with that blouse and my local fabric store is damn near out of buttons after having a 50% off notions sale last week. I believe the last day of the sale when I was there they had a lovely selection of rhinestone buttons still left…not what I need for the blouse.
In other news my Lady Grey coat is coming along nicely, I’m trying to get done at least one page of instructions a day, for anyone who has worked with Colette patterns before you know how fantastic the little instruction booklet is, I wish big 4 patterns came that way (although if they did I probably wouldn’t be able to get them for 99 cents).
