Day 27 - Rescued

A pair of black jeans. Old, worn, and faded, but otherwise in good shape. Just a bit frayed along the edges. A bit like me, really... They are comfortable, and fit me so well. Far too good for the bin, or even the thrift store. They just don't look good any more. So I rehem them, on my trusty old sewing machine that has served me so well since 1977. Then a cycle in the washing machine with some black dye, and they'll be as good as new!
