sides to middle

I have lost hours, probably whole days, looking at images of mending past and present on Pinterest. From Japanese Boro, too good to waste and visable mending to things repaired so many times they have been remade completely.

I found ths woollen blanket under a pile of sheets in Oxfam the other day.

I took my find home and spread it out.

And saw for the first time the carefully mended patches.

This blanket may stay whole.  Or maybe a pair of cushions sharing my work with someone elses.

Such careful invisible mending deserves to be noticed.
