Above is the tray filled with yarns and needles and threads on my coffee table. That's what I do in front of TV especially during this hibernation period in the Hudson River Valley. Below are some of my works in progress: re-embroidered nordic sweater that is extra special because it is a beloved friend's sweater who passed away. I am embroidering a celestial border on a black cashmere ruana that was my mothers- that will bring it to life and I will wear it enthusiastically. The last item is a leg warmer which is what I have been obsessed with wearing this winter- one down another to go.
Tonight I am opening the doors at Instar Lodge in Germantown for Mending Monday which is the first monday in the month (normally). Menders, stitchers, sewers join around a large table to do their handy work and chat. Many new friendships have formed around this mending session.
