Baby it's cold outside

It's a good day for wearing warm socks whilst mending ...


I do love patching jeans, especially those with holes worn into the knees by our grandkids, imagining the stitches inside absorbing future falls, like a hand slipped out just in the nick of time ...


Fortunately, padding shouldn't be needed today as everyone's safe inside ...


while everything outside is being slowly encased in ice ...


Don said he saw a local news report last night on how to use an ice scraper (if you had one) and cautioning against pouring hot water on car windshields. Good advice under the circumstances ...


Addendum:

No hole yet, so (sew) a bit of preventive maintenance ...

F&I promise not to send any more nasty weather your way. If it comes, we are not at fault! LOL. (Grand) Mother Bear protecting her precious cubs.

Mending season ... yes, I believe darning gives one time and space to ponder new beginnings while retaining the best of the old

And Nana Bear? Absolutely true!

Susan - Just took a scroll through your blog ... beautiful nature photography and naturally I gravitated to the dye pot posts. Finding Austin was an added bonus.

that's so funny -- how to use an ice scraper! PS on blogger blogs, finding wordpress ID doesn't 'take' lately -- which is why I'm using google ID

Liz A said...

Dee - thanks for the blogging tip ... and yeah, I’m glad we brought an ice scraper with us when we moved from Virginia

Love your pre-patch Liz! I once patched a knee of work pants and one of my under-two's pointed to the patch and said, "Ouchie!"

Nancy - I'm going to need super-sized patch "sandwiches" for the next round of mending. My daughter told a familiar tale: "honestly, the holes weren't that big when I brought him to school"
