Boro Time

This Friday’s RUDE blog post is inspired by an article in Womankind magazine titled The Stuff of Life by Jo Immig.

“A growing band of people are tying up what’s precious in a handkerchief on the end of a stick and stepping out to create a different culture…….  A culture where the people understand we are but one of the millions of species on this blue planet; where people like to shop locally, re-use and up-cycle; where we make community gardens and cherish the hand-made, bespoke and unique. One where we once again embrace a life entwined with nature. A life with less stuff.”

And RUDE Boy was on borrowed [not boro] time recently when he came to RUDE Girl and indicated that his boro mended Levis #3, that I had spent 5 months patching and stitching, were too tight around his middle!

Seriously, I was once again aching to feed my addiction to boro, and took RUDE Boy’s weight gain as a good excuse to immediately make alterations.

Here is the You Tube video link to how I went about this boro project and RUDE Boy muddling….whoops modelling his altered pair of Levi’s #3.

Beat The Man and work on boro time not boss time!
