June 29, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about something frayed. It could be fabric, like a flag or garment. It could also be nerves or temper. What is it to be frayed?
She hated sewing. It wasn’t that she couldn’t, just that she preferred not to.
Her daughter was the same, she too would rather go out and buy a new pair of jeans or shirt than sew a hem or put on a button.
Their mutual love of gardening saw them outside tending blooms and trellises, hitching and pitching, digging and twigging.
Their clothes became snagged and tagged, but they didn’t mind.
In fact they came up with such a novel idea, they set up in business.
Who would’ve thought that frayed jeans in disrepair would become the latest fashion!
