Oh, Brother (in law)

These raggedy snowboard pants belong to Kuan, my husband's brother.  Kuan charms me with that grin, saying, "PLEEEEEEEEEEEZZzzzzz," and I end up with his mending.  These pants were made of sweatshirt jersey.  The crotch is the first to go with stress/strain on the seam from sitting.  After hand-stitching the holes closed, the repairs were dowsed with Fray Check, then patched from the inside.  Patches were made with heavy-duty Heat 'N Bond and quilting cotton.  My bulletproof patchwork will last longer than the rest of the pants.

Did any of you locals feel the 5.1 earthquake on Monday at 10:30a?  It was centered in Baja California, about 150 miles from where I was, so we got a pretty good shake, but nothing scary.
