This post is a shout-out to my mom, who always sewed things for me when I was younger. She made me clothes, patched jeans, etc. And she's an amazing quilter - see here, here and here, for example.
I never was really interested in sewing much when I was younger. And truth be told, I'm still not very interested. But when you've got a dress with a ripped seam for a wedding that's five days away and Mom is hundreds of miles away, you've gotta do it yourself!
No before shots, but here's the after:
The actual sewing:
It's in the wash now. I have full confidence that my stitches will hold. Woo!
Sorry for the lack of knitting pictures ... as an update, I'm on the heel of Steelers sock No. 2. Hoping to turn it tonight. I've got a three-day weekend coming up and I've got lots of good things planned - seeing a documentary about fonts, running/walking the Race for the Cure, and Judy's and Jeffrey's wedding on a tall ship!
