2008 Sock Mending Party!

No work was accomplished today because it was the 2008 Sock Mending Party —

2 coats
1 sock creature
several pairs of pants
and many, many socks were repaired.

In addition, a white coat arrived, well, white, and left with green circles on it; some embroidery was completed; and a quilt was on its way to being finished.

Chicken hat had a great time, as did the rest of us.

The cello was brought out and we had live music as we mended.

What a great way to start 2008! And now I'm off to laze around and read.

This may very well have to be a new years tradition. I'll see if Laura will send a photo of the now famous coat.

OK, see this entry for a picture of the coat!

Every time I put, say, my wallet in my coat pocket and it stays there, I give thanks to you for the 2008 mending party, my only regret being that I didn't eat more smashed fish.

Regret no more! I still have more of the smashed fish, which I'd be happy to deliver to you!
