- Patch pose

J saw me taking a picture and he wanted in on the action ...

Patch #43 (far right ... revised 2/17/2016)

Today's patch is indigo-dyed linen that I used to mend the hole in his jeans from the inside ...


out ...


As is often the case, the other knee was just a bit thin, so I added some reinforcing stitch, backed with a little more linen ...


Now, let's get back to having fun ...

Visiting these cute boys must be such a pleasure.

Thank you x 2! I did try to convince my daughter to let me do some crazy colors, but she opted for subdued. Not a huge surprise since she grew up with my quiet colors. Guess I'll have to do some funky repairs on my own jeans.

Thanks Dana ... They are worth every minute of the 1500 mile round trip ... which we try to make every couple of months (give or take a couple of weeks).
