Our time to mend

Lockdown has forced people to look at living differently than perhaps pre-covid. Quite literally we might be more inclined to make and mend clothes, where we might previously have turned to the shops for something new. However, it feels more than that. We are in lockdown and we are having to fight against a deadly virus. The time is for mending, psychologically as well as physically.

    Ha! I’ve been doing lots of sewing recently… I love machine sewing but I hate hand sewing so much because I so rarely do it ><

      I just love the colours of the spoils, the texture of the cotton, shiny threads

    I love how you manage to give life to these figures. It really looks like she’s just about to adjust her hand on the needle.
