In Time

Most clothing is so well made these days that I rarely have to sew on a button. Heavy mileage on a favorite coat left one button hanging like a loose tooth, though. Like a loose tooth, I pulled the button off as soon as I realized it might be lost, stowing it in my wallet until I got home. I sew so seldom that when I do it feels like working with my feet.

I set up the mending kit under a lighted magnifier. The lamp was so comforting I didn't actually have to use it except to thread the needle. It's always amazing to discover that two minutes with needle and thread generates years of life for a garment for which I paid dearly -30-
