World's Fastest Filling Basket...


I'm sure I just emptied this a week or so ago!  But the least interesting sewing related thing I did this weekend was go through the mending basket - a few holes in seams, a missing button, a shirt where I changed all the buttons because the ones which came with the shirt were too small and kept coming out of the buttonholes (what's with that, anyway - it's not the first time I've had to do that!), a Converse All Star with a hole needing darning, a pair of too-big school shorts, and another hole in my old white linen trousers (they are rather patched now, but highly comfy). Told you it wasn't exciting!

Oooooo! I haven't had a mending basket for years but then again, there's only WM and I and we just move damaged clothes from the "good enough to wear out of the house" group to the "strictly at home" group! LOL

It's easier to just make a stitch in the buttonhole to shorten the hole than it is to replace all the buttons - well that's what I usually do anyway - but what is it with non matching buttons and buttonholes - it happens ever such a lot :(

Mine fills up so quickly too. I just emptied mine this week and it feels so good. It isn't the fun sewing that I want to be doing.

So glad to see the word verification off here too! Thanks.
