I'm just about to go sew some buttons onto my husband's jacket so that it will be good as new! Also mended a pair of jeans.

Lets see, I glued my cake decorator back together this week.

I turned an old cigar box and a messed up felting pad into a holder for my felting needles.

I am turning a pair of my husband's cords into clothes for the dolls because they are beyond my skills to repair.

A mouse chewed a strap on my snowshoes and I didn't realize it until had to hike a mile to our car in the middle of the solstice snow storm. So we took an old nylon strap from the highchair that we don't use and hubby poped a new rivet into it and filed it down because it was a little long. We gave it a good test run today ( sunhy and 33 degrees) while iking on a neighbor's land.

I just found your challenge and it's almost done. I wish more of us made do and repaired. Great thinking!

Melinda- I am always sewing buttons on- the JoAnns store calls me Button Boy cause I always need odd sized buttons.

Stephany- Have you ever seen the Alton Brown show "Goodd Eats" on tthe food network- his one show on cake - he made his own cake saw set up out of two pieces of 2"X 2" and a saw blade and turn table out of a Lazy susan- made me chuckle whne I thought about the expense my Mom and aunts went throught buying those things!

Fleecenik- damn mice- I am sure they are good for something, but I haven't found a use for them yet!!

Candy- never too late! I am hoping this becomes the norm for people instead of just a challenge!

Just finished superglueing the Hedwigish looking ornament of Joon Bug's that the dog knocked off the tree with his tail!
