Have been doing lots of sowing... have a list of clothes with broken bits and have fixed up a load of them. The biggest task was to sow up the insides of a huge beautiful black coat that empiress left here in March, the insides were torn and I couldn't actually wear it because my arms couldn't find their way into the sleeves! But... my favorite loose t-shirt no longer has a hole in the shoulder, my trousers have pockets without holes and my black silky button up shirt now has all it's buttons back. Etc.
I discovered that I can sow very quickly with my left hand! I'm training myself to be ambidextrous :-)
My list only has two items on it now... I know there must be more. There's also 2 zips I need to repair but I need professional to do those (one of them is a big new rock zip on a pair on new rocks).
