finally

got around to mending the hole in the pocket of a pair of jeans on the weekend. They weren’t on my original list but they’ve been hanging on the back of the door knob for the past month & I got tired of seeing them there.

Only took me 5mins to do whilst watching tv!

Still aware of the other things I have to tend to which have been on my original list for far too long & added items I’ve discovered recently:

~ 3 x summer dresses to hem
~ repair broken jewellery pieces
~ clean silver jewellery
~ find a way to mend handbag handle
~ mend small hole in blue dress
~ get power point in dining area replaced
~ unpick cushion cover and replace
~ find a way to stop the bathroom vanity drawer from opening by itself!



Reviewing the fix it list

Looking at my Fix & Mend list from a few months back, I’m rapt to discover that I can tick a few items off and only have a few left to do now. :-)

~ 3 x summer dresses to hem
~ hem new jeans ✔
~ repair broken jewellery pieces
~ clean silver jewellery
~ get kitchen lights/light switch sorted ✔
~ find a way to mend handbag handle
~ stitch sleeve on work dress ✔
~ wash/clean walking sandals ✔
~ fix broken leg on mirror stand ✔
~ mend small hole in blue dress



2 down

Finally hemmed a pair of jeans & a pair of black trousers that have been hanging in the wardrobe unworn for the past 6 months!

It was like having new clothes all over again. I wore the jeans on the weekend and the black pants to work yesterday. :-D



2 small things

This past week, whilst cleaning out cupboards, I came across two things that needed fixing.

Instead of adding them to the list of items I already awaiting repair, I got to it:

1. fixed broken drawer base
2. repaired broken cord on back of picture frame – now re-hung



In addition

I just looked back over the list of things to Fix & Mend from February and it hasn’t changed much. In fact, I’ve

~ 3 x summer dresses to hem
~ hem new jeans
~ repair broken jewellery pieces
~ clean silver jewellery
~ get kitchen lights/light switch sorted ✔
~ find a way to mend handbag handle
~ stitch sleeve on work dress
~ wash/clean walking sandals
~ fix broken leg on mirror stand (so I can sell it)

If I keep looking, I’ll be sure to find more to fix so will stop at this lot for now and see how I go in the next month?



Sew & Go!

A couple of weeks ago I bought a groovy pair of genie pants – cheap, cheerful and super comfy!

Yesterday when I went to put them on to go out for lunch, I noticed the stitching had come apart at the drawstring join.

Usually when I notice something like this I take off the garment and leave it on the chair in the bedroom, to await repair. Instead of this prolonged irritation, I got the sewing kit out and stitched the pants up whilst they were on me!

5mins later I was good to go. :-)



Stitch in time

After seeing Maggief927’s post that she got to sewing some buttons, I logged off and sewed the button back onto D’s shirt!

It wasn’t painful. It wasn’t hard. It’s done, at last!



1 Done

Finally got round to taking my watch to the jewellers.

I’ve been without it for the past 5 months after a link mysteriously fell out which made it too tight to wear.

To my delight, the jeweller ordered 2 new links & fitted 1 to my watch, for free! No charge! ????

Now I have a watch to wear again (which actually feels kinda weird) and I’ve got a spare link! :-)



Little things

Last week I managed to get a few little things fixed and mended:

1. Button sewn on D’s trousers

2. Sole of shoe glued back on (Yay!, now I can wear them again)

3. Lamp bracket glued



On the mend!

The last time I checked my ‘Mending’ pile, I felt daunted.

Since then, I’ve actually flicked a couple of items to the Charity shop AND whatsmore, I’ve actually ended up mending things for D before my mending my own!!!!

Ah, the things we do for love!

~ 2 x summer dresses to hem
~ get pewter sandals repaired ✔
~ hem new jeans
~ fix waistband on shorts ✔
~ repair broken jewellery pieces
~ get kitchen lights/light switch sorted
~ find a way to mend handbag handle
~ stitch sleeve on work dress
~ mend hole in beige trousers for D ✔
~ mend hole in navy trousers for D ✔
