Inspired, may be, by my trip to the Boro exhibition, and perhaps a basic need to stitch and mend some favourite garments, I spent a productive and relaxing afternoon patching a much loved jumper, loved not only by me but by a moth and patching and refixing buttons to a top.
I used circular patches on the jumper as I had the urge to stitch some spirals, and I mixed and matched small patches on the top. I have a ‘let’s celebrate the mending’ approach to my fixes, rather than get depressed that my invisible mends are anything but!
