what to do in the economic downturn
Here is a new illustration done by myself - blogged at: www.paulamills.blogspot.com for Illustration Friday. I have been thinking about this saying since seeing an article in Selvedge magazine(see image above - a wonderful source for all things crafty/beautiful) Anyway they have an article on the art of mending - isn't it sad that in our generation, if a sock gets a hole we just chuck it out and buy new socks? Maybe we should revisit the art of darning and mending - try and make things last a little longer before adding them to ever expanding landfills. Apparently it was the the needlework involved in mending that brought on the art of embroidery.
