One of the things that my family enjoys in the summer is swimming in the pool! My mother and father in-law have a great pool that is warm, clean, and always crowded with family and friends. My in-laws have a bucket filled with old-school snorkeling goggles for the kids to use when swimming. But after a long summer of swimming with 15 grandkids, it is rare to find a pair of goggles that are not on the brink of destruction!
Refer to the matriarch of the family of course. And Grandma to the rescue it was! She ran into her sewing room and came out with a scrap piece of banded elastic. Off came the sun-dried broken plastic band and on went the elastic; the “WHOLE SUMMER” was saved by grandma’s ingenuity and elastic!
Does your sewing room ever come to your rescue? We would love to hear your stories in the comments below. Enjoy the last days of summer!
