#TenderTuesday . . . I think it’s good to take time to fix something

.

“As for mending, I think it’s good to take the time to fix something rather than throw it away. It’s an antidote to wastefulness and to the need for immediate gratification. You get to see a whole process through, beginning to end, nothing abstract about it. You’ll always notice the fabric scar, of course, but there’s an art to mending. If you’re careful, the repair can actually add to the beauty of the thing because it is a testimony to its worth.”
Elizabeth Berg

Henri de Braekeleer – The Seamstress, 1863.
