It's Just Wrong!

My husband has a lot of nerve! Just before Christmas he gave me 3 pairs of jeans that he wanted hemmed and another pair that needed a repair to the pocket area - the pants were ripped right where the pocket was attached to the pants. He is sadly mistaken if he thinks that I can do a decent job of hemming pants or even mending them! I kept putting off doing this distasteful task but last night I finally had to buckle under and force myself to face the deed. I did repair the pants that needed to be mended and I hemmed one pair of the jeans. I think that is enough torture for now - I will hem the other 2 pairs of jeans later (much later if I have my way).

I did do some fun sewing yesterday too. I have started sewing the hourglass blocks into sets of 4 and, oh my, I just love it. I have decided the name for this quilt will be Tranquility - I think it is the perfect name for it.

I drove into Toronto this morning with my husband and while he was at work I visited with my Mom and sister Cheryl and her daughter Deanna. We all went grocery shopping together and then I took them out for lunch to celebrate my Mom's birthday. We had such a nice time together, I really do enjoy spending time with my family.

Sewing pants!? Before you know it he will be asking you to iron shirts or replace buttons!

I'm with you. I detest hemming and mending!

Isn't it annoying the way those 'jobs' interfere with our fun!
