The story behind the project: Joseph asked me to fix this hole a couple days ago. This little guy is probably the newest addition to The Box, as he's only been there that long.
The materials: You're looking at it.
The process: Mend a hole in the back leg. This, ironically, is the only kind of sewing I ever remember my gramma doing. In fact, I don't have any memories of her actually holding a needle and thread. But I do know that she didn't have a sewing machine, so she didn't make clothes or quilt or anything at all. Mending must have been the extent of it. And I don't remember ever wearing clothes with holes in them or with missing buttons, so she must have done that.
The cost: It was a prize in the Burger King kids' meal. So besides the twinge of Mom Guilt I suffered as the result of giving my kids sodium and fat for dinner (and I don't even remember when we went there - maybe Kevin took them one day?), it was free.
