Lubi is going to teach Jaimie and me how to darn.
What a fabulous setup and shot! I used to darn a lot, but gave it up years ago! Have fun ;-)

@ludwigsdiana I can’t take credit for the setup - this is what was waiting for me when I got home 😊

You may not have set it up but you composed the shot very nicely. Enjoy learning another new skill.

A most useful skill.

I like the textures and tones. Well composed too.

Fabulous. I wish I had learned darning from my mother - but it is a skill I never thought I would need ... so many things I wish I had learned from my mother before it was too late. And what a lovely photo it makes with all the tools of the trade arranged like this

@seacreature I am so sad that my mother’s sewing box went in the garage sale after she died - including her darning mushroom and thimble which I so wish I’d kept 😢
I also wish I’d made shortbread with her…
As for the darning, it turns out it’s quite easy, just like weaving.
These days “visible mending” is all the rage here and people are making colourful patches of darning which looks really lovely.

@narayani they did sashiko on "Sewing Bee" (our making clothes show on telly). Most interesting.
