Things to do while isolating: mending linen

Mending and darning are things I like to do but somehow they always end up pushed down my todo-list. Mending is a calming activity. It’s also a low stress, low decision one. There’s no difficulty in knowing when you’re done; You are done when the hole in the fabric is gone. If it’s still there, then mend some more.

I don’t do invisible mending and often use embroidery thread. Mainly because I have a stash of it to use up.

A kitchen towel mysteriously developed a hole in the washing machine. Since I’m spending my time at home even more than usual there was no excuse not to fix it.
