Never fear! Last month I was asked to instruct the ladies in the neighborhood in the art of hand sewing. I said yes, then I looked up stitches on the internet, collected thread, buttons and fabric from my craft stashes and made it happen. Since then I've been dong a lot of mending. My mending is not beautiful by any means BUT I've felt like I'm learning a lot about Using things up, wearing things out and making things do.
So today, I took some brown thread and reattached a leg! I didn't realize it before but I'm a pretty amazing Orthopedic Surgeon! Hopefully bear will have many happy years to come and if he needs any surgery in the future I hope he feels comfortable returning to me for his care.
