[i]Sewing our Expedition patch onto our Sokol suits on Sunday [April 30]. Not our specialty, but Oleg and I got the job done! ;)
We are getting the Sokol suits ready for our return to Earth soon, and having the right patches is very important. ;)
The suits keep us safe if there is ever a sudden loss of pressure or fire inside our Soyuz capsule. We don't really sew the patches into our suits, that would make holes and sharp needles are to be avoided on the Space Station. Instead the patch and the suit have loops that we thread through with string and a blunt needle, tying a knot at the end.[/i]
