Make do and Mend

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!

Slightly glazed cotton patches with silver thread
Lovely gingham top patched with vintage Laura Ashley
and whacky red diamond gingham and finished
off with lime green button
