Sorry to hear that @volvo240thebest, fingers crossed for a better result with this test. We’ve been escaping London as much as possible on the weekends but work has me in the thick of it Monday to Fridays. Got my first jab coming up soon and I’m worried about that too, hopefully no bad reactions.

Hi @volvo240thebest - thats a downer to hear for you and your family. We'd noticed you being away - but I'd wondered if you were just genning up on starching and "glue" techniques :ph34r: .

Really hope for  massive improvement - and quickest - and all the best to you and your wife

Nice work everyone!! sorry I've been MIA for a while now. I still lurk often but haven't been in a mood for posting in a while.
Since april 16th we're stuck at home in quarantine. My wife has been positive to Covid19, luckily no major consequences, but after nearly a month she's still positive and we're all confined at home.

Today she made her 4th covid test and I really hope this is going to be the one that puts the word end on our quarantine...

please send good vibes : )

 

Hang in there ride the storm

Hope everyone are staying safe!
Sorry bout the lack of updates from my part. Was getting some loose threads at the crotch so I held up wearing them until I found my sawing kit (I’ve recently moved and a lot is still in boxes so it took a while).

Just got back a positive COVID test today, feeling ok though I guess. On a lighter note first really warm day here in Lidköping, Sweden and the trees are staring to bloom.

@Spiraltoy all the best with the covid. Hope you sail through easily. Also you wanna be careful posting repair pics like that, I'll be sending my jeans in to you next!

@Jared_Lee appreciate the comparisons! The 40s make the 50s look lowrise :-) Did you take the same size in both?

Thanks @el padre and @unders.

I actually thought about starting a repair service many years ago but never got to it properly. Not that you need it Padre, that sashiko looks nice!

@el padre, I have 31 in the '50s and 32 in the S40s. They both fit similar in size - snug out of the wash and roomy after a day or two.
