I’ve been growing some new skills in the last few months. I’ve been in tech for so long that my skill set is fairly narrow. I’m a Night Auditor, not a Seamstress, but I have a particularly good and useful jacket that has been falling apart in recent years. Wearing holes in cloth, ripping seams, and stuff like that. Stuff that my mom would have fixed when she was younger. But she was doing badly for at least the last couple years, and little things like repairing clothing passed our notice. Well, in the last few weeks, I’ve taken to needle and iron-on patches to repair the good and useful jacket that would cost me hundreds of dollars to replace. It’s not a perfect repair job, but it should give the jacket some more years of life.
