I'm one of those people who really really
don't like winter.
I don't think birds like it either - no food.
I try to throw some seeds on the frozen snow.
The stupid squirrel broke my hanging feeder.
Trying to find my steps and walk way.
But I'm happy now that it all melted - well
almost. And yesterday I saw some life! The
crocus is starting to make it's way up through
the soil! YAY Only one more month and it's
I did some baking; which I love to do in the winter
Banana Walnut Cake - one of my favorites and
easy to make besides being delicious.
I was rummaging through my closet the other
day (I was supposed to be cleaning) and found
a couple of my husband's cotton shirts that I
had kept. (he passed away 5 years ago)
I had saved the shirts thinking that some day
I would make a quilt out of them but then I saw
on Facebook that someone had made a memory
pillow out of one. So, I washed the shirt and
Ironed it and looked for a tutorial. I found a
couple to get a general idea and then did it my
way in the end.
It felt kind of weird to be cutting the shirt; I
can't explain it. I felt like I was committing a sin.
I know that probably sounds silly.
My husband worked for Verizon for over 27 years and
I found an anniversary pin, what year I don't know
but it was when Verizon was called N.Y. Tel.
I put it on the pocket. It felt so sad and happy at
the same time.
I then packed it up and as a surprise; mailed it to
my daughter who lives on Long Island. She was
so overjoyed and surprised!
I have some pieces left from that shirt and am
thinking of some some items to make with them.
I also have two more shirts left. I might make
another pillow for myself.
I'm so happy that I saved them. I only wish that
I had saved more but I donated them.
