Finally today I tended to some mending. It made me feel like I lived 200 hundred years ago, patching a pair of linen pants so I can wear them longer. Okay, so maybe the use of an electric machine isn't quite "200 years," but you get my drift. These days, clothing is pretty much disposable. Patching clothing is a lost art. But hey, I really like these pants! I also patched a shirt and a dress.
