at least not hemming jeans. I guess that counts as mending, not sewing. However, since DH spoils me rotten, I do mending for him only--do NOT let that secret out! I put in a jeans needle and used thick jeans thread and beat the thick side seams into submission with a hammer ( a tip from a dear lady on my WIP list) and still had stall-out in the seam--thot my machine would smoke and quit!! But DH is now the proud owner of a pair of jeans the right length (I hope--he hasn't tried them on yet!). And they only sat in the corner for 4 months!! :-)
He replaced two of my flourescent light fixtures in my studio that the ballast had died in with much better ones--hooray, I can now see up there. See, he is very handy to have around! I need to fix some rice to go with the beans he has had simmering on the stove all day--I think I'll keep mending for him!
