Day 5 - I did manage to do something however. Treestump has a pair of jeans which are fashionably distressed and therefore at some point recently the knee ripped a bit. He was having a somewhat destructive afternoon and wearing said jeans.. by the time to got to the sound of ripping he was valiantly trying to rip through the hem seam having managed to create a rip all the way down from the original horizontal rip to the hem!
So today I roughly stitched the whole lot back together and patched it. I find standard patches boring so tend to embroider them or use a different fabric. I had a nice baby cord in orange I fancied using but thought a second different colour patch would be ice as it was such a big area. Then Tom suggested to do a fish and water as Treestump loves fish. The water is from the bottom of a really good quality t-shirt which has dolphins on. It's lovely but none of the adults are likely to wear it so tomorrow I'm going to resize it for Treestump to go with his 'new' jeans !
We just hope he doesn't think he should rip all his trousers to get more fish!
