    Loved the flow chart!

    We run along similar lines, except when there’s an attachment to a ‘shabby’ piece of cloth…. no, it’s not a bunny rug :-), but His favourite pair of shorts. They are almost in a state of ‘way past the rag bag’… Perhaps they’ll get chewed up by the washing machine one day… or just go missing. No, they did once and he suspected I’d done-them-in. But, he found them. And no it wasn’t me… He had ‘filed’ them in the wrong draw. Oh well, it’s hard to stop patching them as he enjoys wearing them so much – I think partly because they look so hideous. 🙂

      Thanks Julie – sounds like the shorts will stay in the “handyperson” category for a long time 🙂

    Ah that made me laugh! I’m finding now that I have my machines out all the time, friends and family are collecting their mending in bags and delivering it when they visit. It’s piling up. I’m going to need a flow chart that includes what you have here and has another dimension – relationship and season?

      Agree! – think this flow chart has potential to expand in other directions 🙂

    Actually do this, but didn’t realise I was following your system. I’ve another level of using pieces of fabric in textile & embroidery art works.

      Hmm…yes, there should be arrows coming out from one of the boxes for reusing pieces of fabric.
      Btw, how pleased I was to have a surname like Haywood to lend to the title, although “Postle’s Hierarchy” also sounds authoritative.
