BUT I had a friend who came over last week, and actually offered to help me with a project around the house. And after I trucked her through the house, opening doors that guests are typically not allowed to look behind, and confessing my sins, she helped me start to sort through some things. I was SO inspired that when she left I kept going. I'll show you the results another time (when there's a little more to see), but the point of this post was to say, I unburied Monkey2's favourite jeans while I was organizing:
They were stuffed in a bag in the corner of my craft room, together with the iron-on patches I bought to fix them.
It was a six-month and five-minute long project, and Monkey2 was very pleased. If you eliminated the stuffing-into-a-corner part, it would be a fast, cheap, super easy way to fix a pair of pants.
