Well, today, it was time for the flat sheet to be mended!
|A Tear to be Mended|
There was a tiny hole which was soon darned and a bigger tear. At first, I was going to darn it, too, but then, I decided that it needed something more. I cut out two heart shaped patches from a piece of blue flannel fabric that I had and appliqued them on top of the tear to cover it. One on the wrong side of the sheet:
This is what the right side of the sheet looked like, after I appliqued the patch on the other side:
|A Square within a Heart!|
|Hearts and Hat|
My patches will hold, I know, but the poor sheet might not! But, maybe, with the patches in place, I'll get another winter's use out of it? In the meantime, I will look to see if there are any sales on flannel sheets.
Besides mending, I did two loads of laundry, today, including a blanket, and worked on the backing for the scrap quilt. I am using a length of flannel that I had bought a long time ago, but it is not big enough, so I am attaching additional pieces of leftover flannel to it. This is definitely a "stash buster" quilt! LOL.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The fabric stash
- A working washing machine and dryer
- Time to play with fabric
- Chatting with my daughter
- Tomato soup from the freezer for dinner!
Sunday's To Do List:
- Work on the quilt backing
- Do the dishes/run the dishwasher
- Attend the memorial service at the temple
- Water the garden
How is your weekend coming along?
