Under the watchful eyes of the nation, Ben Smith’s skills have accumulated since being signed by Foxland Football Club three years ago; he had previously played for The Counting Cats. His team have enjoyed a remarkable season in which they accrued enough points to be promoted to the Premier League – an astounding accomplishment for the whole football club. Meanwhile, the footballer, whose impressive passing accuracy has caught the attention of many European teams, was accosted by fans as he attempted to access his accommodation. Luckily, he was accompanied by his bodyguard, who commanded that the intruders leave immediately. “Leave now, or you will be accused of trespassing on private property,” instructed the bodyguard, as he puffed out his chest to accentuate his superiority.

The government encouraged housewives to ‘Make Do and Mend’ by providing them with instruction booklets and short films. Here’s an example of one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4RpJcVs1VI
Fast forward to 2020 and we find ourselves with clothes shops closed for the time being. I would like for you to have a go at learning to darn. Darning was a wartime method of mending a hole in clothing (especially socks) so that they could be used again. In this current time of recycling and avoiding fast fashion, this could be a skill that you use even when lockdown has passed!
This video demonstrates nice and clearly how to darn a sock. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yi_J8YeQkww She talks about running stitch, which you learnt how to do at school a few weeks ago. As always, I’d love to see photos of the finished item!
