How I feel

While I should be hand stitching bindings, I had to make this little guy. This week marked the anniversary of one moment which had tremendous consequences, and as the year has come to a full circle and I’m doing all the things I usually do, this is how I feel - a little sad.

I’m linking this up to Amylou’s Sew & Tell.
