My mending basket had got too full to actually carry around up until yesterday. Finally I could avoid no more. There were two pairs of Fahed's trousers to be hemmed & two pairs of jiggers to be mended/hemmed. All had to be done ready for packing.
All went well so I also fixed the sleeves on a silky top which we weird and puffy (no more!). Then I mended two pairs of my own jeans which were in the basket so long I had actually forgotten I had them. Next a pair of Ahdel work trousers. And nothing went wrong, as it so often does, withy lack of about combined with my mums ancient sewing machine.
Just started to pin the arms on a dress (mail order and looked weird without sleeves- somehow I found matching fabric, yaay) and we ran out of time. I really left it to the very last moment. Silly but I whipped the ought it and nothing went wrong so I guess it suits me to work under some time constraints.
And when we get back dropping Fahed at the airport I am going to do those sleeves even though I don't need the dress until December :)
