on the mend, again.
given that i laid out a serious list of resolutions this year, i am happy to report follow through on any of them. the office is still a mess (the clean-up having been hindered greatly by a month-long ceiling leak that just dried up), but at least i put a dent in the mending pile. i had to clear off the sewing machine table for this one - two old dresses repaired in their backs and sleeves. apparently, the women of yesteryear weren't quite so broad as i in the shoulders. or maybe i am not thrifting in areas that are doukhobor enough.
and my ever-mended slippers are getting another coat of darning. this time, i am using some safety orange wool that shannon gave me. this will, hopefully, prevent me from getting shot in the soles of my feet when i, inevitable, go hunting in my slippers. i wonder if and when i will ever give up on these guys.
