Day 231—Needles and Pins

I used to love to sew and made almost all my clothes from the time I left home until I discovered Macy’s “additional 50% off already drastically reduced” merchandise in the late 1980’s when it became clear to me that I could not save a cent sewing my own clothes. And, in recent years, the pleasure I used to derive from tailoring jackets, making the perfect bound buttonhole, and browsing at Britex Fabrics in San Francisco has lost its charm. So today, I did not look forward to a chore of hemming a couple of pairs of jeans. However, I managed to hem the jeans quickly and without breaking a needle which usually happens when I sew several layers of denim, so maybe I haven’t lost my touch. My camera was already upstairs as was the tripod, so I took a photo of myself threading the needle. I am happy to report that I can still thread the needle easily, thanks to my mono-vision contacts!
