I'm currently sitting in the car waiting for my eldest to have his hair cut, before me and the youngest go in to have ours done! So I thought I would take advantage of the time.
So... mending. I was thinking actual mending and perhaps mending myself. Do I need mending? No. But it can't hurt can it?!
Actual mending - I have a little pile of things that need fixing.
First up an old knitted jumper. I noticed it had a few holes in it. Now if I loved wearing the sweater, I would be upset, but would also consider darning it. However I don't love it - it is the wrong shape and not long enough. I don't like the neckline which slips off my shoulders. So, I have frogged it.
I have also mended a couple of holes in sweaters that I do love. I ran out of time to take up Daniel's school trousers so I will do that tomorrow.
I am trying to continue the writing from yesterday to help me to be mindful. I also tried a blind contour this morning sitting on the patio. I discovered these at the beginning of the week whilst watching a class on Creativebug. You draw what is in front of you with 2 rules - you don't look at the paper and you don't take your pencil off of the paper. I have only done a couple but I really like them.
And there we have today. I am going to try to keep this up for the rest of the week, I don't know how it will pan out when I return to work next week, but I shall take it day by day.
