I find it funny how much I like sewing, but I cannot stand mending.

Take these dress pants. They have been sitting in a mending pile for over 8 months because a button popped off.

The button has been masking tape to the left leg so I would easily have access to the button for mending. That didn't help me get it done -any- faster.
They took less than five minutes to sew the button on. Why did I wait so long to do something so simple?

Is there anyone else that puts off simple mending for no other reason than you just don't want to do it?

I feel the same way! I have clothes from years ago that I still haven't gotten around to mending, even though I sew several nights a week!
