Mend it Monday

Mrs Snail of The Snail of Happiness runs a regular feature called ‘Mend-it-Monday’. Mrs. Snail is the queen of mending and has all sorts of tips, ideas and gadgets to help her on her mission to use and re-use things as long she can.

She is a constant inspiration to me and is even in the early stages of opening a shop to store all sorts of pre-loved items and tools for mending and re-purposing.

I saw this exhibit at Harrogate and thought it would fit right in on this Mend-it-Monday.

It was laid out on the floor, each detail fascinating.

Mending as art – love it!

    I new kind of collage-making!


  2. I like the individual units/sections more than the piece overall, but fascinating nonetheless.


  3. So bright and colorful! We humans can make art of almost anything. It is one of our qualities.

  4. Lovely pieces, I used to spend part of every week on school trousers. I may even have a spare patch somewhere!

    • Ah! The good old days! HaHa – yes with 3 boys you must have needed some time every week. I had two boys and I too often had a pile of trousers waiting for patches. I still get a few clothes to mend from my farming son-in-law.

  5. That’s gorgeous! A really beautiful way to celebrate holes! If only I didn’t have so many other projects… Sadly, I don’t think this approach will work with the seat of the Husband’s work pants, two of which are waiting for my attention…

  6. Thank you for the link… I too love the idea of mending as art. The Japanese seem to have a wonderful history in this respect – very inspiring.
