My first official casualty :(

It survived 40+ years before me...a couple/few years in my home and LOOK. :(

It's a good thing that I refuse to pay over $5 for any one piece - I can afford to replace those that get broken, I don't plan on that happening again.

It was a 4oz refrigerator dish.

What a shame

How bad does life have to get for you to off yourself?
Yesterday my husband received a sad phone call ... his ex parts guy and friend committed suicide.
We do not know all the details, but he had been having family problems and he wasn't happy with the corporate crap at work.
It is such a sad thing.
He was a nice guy, what a shame.
Leaves behind a 17y/o son and wife.

Out of necessity...

1 old sweater

trace my sons hand

sew over the line

cut out

BAM! Mittens!!!
I got tired of spending money on new gloves because my son forgets/misplaces his. So, taking an old sweater I was going to throw out anyway - I made mittens.
I made my 3y/o some too, his actually turned out better than my 7y/os and I made his first. They are not perfect, but for a first time they look pretty darn good and will serve the purpose of keeping the cold off.

A vision

*I was not awake nor was I asleep when it happened.

All ma said to me (I did not see her, but more felt/heard); all she said was 'it was not painful, I
fell asleep and I love you'. Next thing I knew I was crying.
