My first mend!

I’ve mended things before, but this is my first mend since I decided to go on a mending spree.  It wasn’t even on my list.  This morning my son gave me one of his gloves which had a hole in it and asked me to fix them for him.  Seeing as he asked so nicely and it is cold out there, I decided to make it a priority mend!
It literally took me 5 minutes to stitch these up with a needle and thread and now he can have warm hands again!   (He does another pair of gloves, but we can’t find them anywhere….) 
Looking at the pictures now – I think they need a wash too :).  
So far I have given up shampoo, supermarkets, buying new things and I’m preparing to give up single use plastic too as part of My Year of Eco Challenges . If you have a moment I would really appreciate it if you would consider sponsoring me with an action on my DoNation page.
