Every ten years...

I get the urge to sew.


My mother just fell off her chair. We'll wait Mom, while you get back up. Need a sip of water? OK then. Yes, that is the foot pedal that was lost during move #2 AND I NEVER KNEW until you helped us unpack from move #3. LOL.

14 patches later...

He isn't kicked out of cub scouts (yet).

While I am at it, "HONEY, where's that sweater with the ginormous arms?"


First, you pick the seams.


Sew the excess.


Can you see the line?


Start trimming. Note to self, next time use contrasting thread.


That's a lot of excess.


Re-attach the arm.

One down, one to go. Maybe next decade, dear.
And that covers it for the next 10 years. Maybe I will cast on an aran now.

Fabulous and brave!

Hopefully, by the time it's done, it will still fit! LOL!
