Here an Apron, There an Apron...
I repaired six aprons today. Some needed shoulder straps sewn back on. Some never had hooks in the back to hold them together.. Or they lost them. With Tessie's help.
Now that all of the aprons are wearable, it took Tessie about three hours to decide which one she would wear first.
I found it stuffed in the back of the closet. I think that she wore it once and then forgot about it when I made more aprons...
She now has 19 aprons... and is suggesting that the number be upped to 31!
Her logic is... "I will never have to wear the same apron twice in a month!"
If you want to make hangers, they are easy to do. Just grab a few paper clips and start bending. Just put hangers in the search and you will find some here and there between other kinds of hangers.
There is a short description here.
The ones that she has in her hand are made of regular wire, with the ends bent up to hold the shoulder straps of the aprons.
At any rate, I think that I am going to have to make more hangers, or maybe I can just use her method. She piles them up neatly and squishes them into a space between other clothes in the closet... The only trouble comes when she decides she wants one in the middle... Then the whole mess ends up on the floor...
I am NOT picking it up! She can do it herself. That's the house rule! You make the mess. You clean up the mess. I am now going to clean up the mess from sewing.
See you tomorrow.
