Part of my thriftiness is just the fact that I will mend, alter or sew little things for friends in return for an unspoken barter…..
It’ not pretty or glamorous, the hemming of denims or taking in a top or dress. But these blueberries are glorious. Just the time with a girlfriend picking blueberries on an early Sunday morning is a treat.
So when I hem a pair of denim pants for a neighbor and a few days later a beautiful head of cabbage and four tomatoes appear outside my door. I only hope that my sewing or mending gives the person as much joy!
