I managed to sew it back on, channelling my inner Sewing Queen. She's pretty dormant around these parts as you know. Dormant, but surprisingly, semi-skilled it seems.
My Mum told me the other day that she spent most of her 'sewing' classes at school doing 'mathematical equations'. You see, if you mucked up in sewing class, you had to do maths. Mum deliberately misbehaved each lesson so she didn't have to sew. "Anything but the needle" she said to me.
