It looks like just a pile of folded washing up there right? Well wrong - it's 90% of my mending basket all mended! It's such a great relief to have it all done, especially those pink woollen tights. They were a present for miss E around two Winter's ago. She has worn and worn and worn them, and not surprisingly they had holes in the knees - big holes. I had tried to say that she had grown out of them and now that they were "holey" that it was time to let them go. But no. I wasn't sure how I was going to fix them, so they sat, along with other mending projects cluttering up a corner of my bedroom. Then when I was sorting out some doileys I had an idea. I reverse appliqued them, then cut away the ripped holes to reveal the doileys. It seems that they might now be better than the original tights and I think I saw her looking for other tights to make holes in!
