I thought you might like to see some glorious examples I found...

My daughter,who is 20 years old, is not a greenie. Last week when she was out she left her slippers behind. I saw they were starting to come apart, so said I would fix them. My girl said - no don't bother, they were only $5, I'll just get another pair. Hmmm, "No" I said, "I'm going to mend them."
I want the next generation to think about these things too.
And on that note...it is school holidays here. I saw a good refashion for track pants into a skirt so asked Katie (13) if she had any she would like me to alter, and here is the result. She was really pleased.

I Love My Own Backyard
It's mid winter here, but still quite mild most days. New Zealand is a land of rainbows as it is often sunny and raining at the same time. It makes for pretty photos.
