One good thing about this enforced home stay is that even the mending pile, suddenly offers some welcome relief from the monotony of the daily routine. We’re doing ok, we have room to disperse and not be in each other’s pockets unless we want to but even so the ‘openendness’ of the whole affair can drive you crazy if you let it.

Better to keep busy.

So, mending pile… the dressing gown with the seam coming apart? Done. The pyjama top with the ripped button hole and lost button? Fixed. The tracksuit bottom with the broken zip? Good as new.

It didn’t even take that long, just a bit of faffing with different threads and the sewing machine… and then how about fishing off the two sashiko mat that have been languishing on a shelf since last year. At least. Might have been longer. Who’s counting? Time has no meaning at the moment… it’s been suspended… we’re living in a Winnie The Pooh type reality… never mind Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday… it’s today… it’s always TODAY… aaaanyway…

Ta daaaaaahhhhhh! Drum roll.

Cute eh? So cute that I’ve decided to start another one because if we unbalance too much the fragile equilibrium between finished projects and unfinished projects… well, who knows what would happen to the world, and let’s face it… we’re in trouble enough as it is!

And a big pat on the back to me!

I might as well begin another one… it’s not that I have to be somewhere else, right?

Stay safe.

    Complimenti per il blog, molto d’ispirazione e di ammirazione.
    Facendo finta che sia un tempo normale, ma hai disegnato tu il pattern per il sashiko? Seno, come lo hai ottenuto?


    1. Ciao Katia, sono pannelli prestampati… a volte si trovano anche su amazon, io li ho presi su… good luck!
