Accident Prone

I am accident prone. No doubt about it. I was just trying to help unload retaining wall blocks. I just didn't do a very good job of judging the distance between the block in my hands and the one I'd just placed.

Warning graphic picture follows.

I would have been fine if I'd not jerked my hand out from between the blocks. That was what caused the tear.

I've decided that it looks like a Frankenstein Minion.

It has cramped my quilting style. Fortunately I get the stitches out soon.

Remembering Mom

My mother passed away last month at the age of 93.

At age 2 in either Souix Falls, South Dakota or Birmingham, Michigan.

Mom is on the far right.
Here she's back left, with all of her siblings.

We aren't sure about Mom's age or the location of this photo.

We'll miss you Mom.
