Towards domestic harmony.

"You have a remarkable talent" said Mrs. M.

It's not like her to pay me random compliments, so I waited for whatever was coming next.

"A talent for turning your new clothes into old clothes very quickly"

OK, she did have a point. My non-sewing hobbies are mostly about mending old motorbikes and similar mucky, metal working activities.
I often can't be fussed changing clothes, or wearing overalls, so my gear does have a hard life.

"Can't you at least buy an apron?" She asked, not unreasonably.

Buy an apron?
Seriously...?
No, it's clearly time to drag out some more of the notorious "spanner roll" canvas, and fire up the sewing machine...

Now that's a handy number!  :loveit:

@Mick if you'd waited a couple of days you could have entered the reuse contest. Nice work though.

@Mick if you'd waited a couple of days you could have entered the reuse contest.

To be honest, I did think about that, but I have other plans for the contest.
Whether those plans come to anything, or just a ball of crumpled fabric stuffed into the bottom of the bin, remains to be seen.

@Mick I love it, good job. Wouldn't overalls be more useful?  :devil:

Nice one!

That reminds me, I need to make myself an apron for dog grooming, instead of getting whatever I happen to be wearing covered in clipped-off fluff.

Now that is super  duper.  I don't wear a 'pinny' but when I have to I have something like that with big pockets in to stuff all sorts in.  Perfect, you're a keeper.
