Something new and something (too) old

P1030691


A pair of new mittens! Very much needed because it feels so cold when walking with Fleur, and the nice thing about this pattern is that these mittens are quite long. So my wrist is covered too.

I’m very happy to have managed to match the colors in the yarn on both mittens.

P1030698

The pattern is Circle Dance , the yarn is Drops Fabel (black) and Drops Delight, colorway 12.

And then something very old. I guess we all have had that pair of jeans which we wore every day if possible. Just the perfect jeans and then just too soon this happens.

And although it seems to be fashionable, and young boys and girls pay extra for new jeans like this, I’m not too happy about a rip like this. But because I didn’t want to say goodbye just yet, I tried to repair it.

P1030686

Two scrap pieces of blue fabric and strong quilting thread.

P1030689

One piece is sewn onto the back to the tear, two pieces are patched onto the front. The stitching isn’t too neat, because I didn’t think that would be the right thing to do on such old jeans.  Hopefully they last a couple of weeks longer now.

Groetjes, Dorien

Love those mittens Dorien - they look so warm and snuggly! The patched jeans are marvelous - the darning all over the patch is perfect
