I don’t know how to sew. It’s one of many useful homesteading skills that I never learned.
Cherie, on the other hand, enjoys sewing and she’s been doing it since she was a girl. In addition to whatever sewing needs doing around here she makes aprons and rice bags and sells them at the farmers market and craft shows. Her work is beautiful and she has lots of happy customers.
Over the years I’ve worn holes into lots of pairs of blue jeans doing farm work. Lately it occurred to me that rather than just using plain old patches to cover those holes, maybe I could find some of the kinds of patches we had our mother sew onto our jeans back in the early 70s.
I wonder if Cherie would mind sewing them on for me?
