Having a few skills can help one have a feeling of control over one’s own life. I enjoy learning new skills and using skills I have had for most of my life. My mother taught my sisters and me to sew early in our lives. We would choose projects to complete and were challenged to do our best. I still love sewing projects; even the most mundane.

My favorite pair of thrifted jeans burst some pocket seams. I kept putting my phone in there and was surprised when it would end up on the floor. Now that I’m on a week break, I feel I have time to catch up on those little things that make a big difference.

The thread is some my husband had already (he’s a better sewer than me) so it’s not a perfect match, and it’s definitely not a perfect mending job, but now I can put my phone in my pocket and not walk around with raw edges poking out on my backside.

Hopefully this photo doesn’t scare anyone away! I look so moody, but I cannot smile for a camera. I took this wearing said jeans with a Polaroid Land Camera 360 using FUJIFILM FP-3000b film. This was taken when the olive tree was full and before my seams had unraveled.

Peace and love,

Kristan
