I found myself rummaging through the house for a needle and blue thread on Wednesday. One of my son's hockey socks had a hole in it and needed repair before all the big playoff games. Normally I don't even notice things like holes in socks because I'm too interested in the game itself...because I'm videoing the game itself. I don't have time to see holey socks, C'MON.
Go, Grayson, Go!
But my husband, ever the detail guy with the eagle eye, caught it in a photograph:
This photo captures not only the frayed sock, but the celebration after Grayson gave his teammate Brent Jones a pass for a goal that broke the all-time state highschool points record.
Close up, it really was pretty big I guess. Thanks, Eagle Eye.
But I ask you, would YOU see that in a photo?? Anyway, off I went to round up a needle and thread. Would you believe that the fix itself took less time than locating the needle and thread did? It was that darn blue thread that wasn't where it was supposed to be. (Our little secret - I used black thread instead.)
Today's Small Thing is to mend a clothing item that's probably been sitting in the bottom of your closet for awhile now, awaiting attention.
Is it a hem that's come undone? A tear in a shirt? A button that's come loose? A hole in a sock? There is nothing better than to get that taken care of lickety split!
"A stitch in time saves nine," said that smart Benjamin Franklin. He's still right, even after all these years.
What needs mending at YOUR house? Can you find the sewing items easily and quickly? (I can....now.)
