First of all I thought I'd give you an update on my knee patched jeans, which I repaired in June. You can see the original repair here if you missed it. This is what they look like now.
This is my favourite pair of jeans and it has not been a great summer so I've been wearing them more than I would like. They have survived a week scrambling around rocks in Cornwall and a lot of gardening, not to mention the usual day-to-day crawling around on the floor. I am very happy with how this is looking. Normally I would have expected the hole to tear so that it went right across the knee but it is still tiny and the stitches are not really showing any signs of wear and tear. I will definitely be doing this again!
On to the current denim piece. Now that I've decided this is just for play I've been having some fun. This week I've done some more running stitch/cross stitch sections, added some more patches and have just started playing around with other types of stitching.
And finally...my happy mail from Lara arrived and look what she sent:
All I needed was the dark blue grunge but she filled the whole envelope with goodies. I had such fun opening this parcel. Thank you, Lara: here's to blogging friendships.
