I did a bit of altering and mending at the weekend, most of Saturday really, as I had been saving up stuff to warrant getting the sewing machine out.
Then at church on Sunday, when asked to help with the collection, I was prompted yet again (the inner prompt that is) to offer to re-line the collection bags.
Well they had become rather worn and kind of holy! Yes I giggled at the thought too!
As they only needed 2 of the 4 for the evening service I brought the 2 worst ones home.
Fortunately I had some lining material and even just enough braid plus a curved needle which enabled me to get round the fiddly parts.
I even found a nice shiny American cent when I removed the first old lining. So apt that the American coinage has the quote,
"In God We Trust" on it.
Both done, now that's better.
EDIT - Have since finished all 4 bags and was thanked at church Sunday 19th.
