A Hodge Podge Post With A Craft Idea

Hubby has finally returned from his central Florida trip to assist his recently widowed father prepare the house for sale.

Hubby's 2013 Honda CB100 in the
Bethel Primitive Baptist Church and Cemetery parking lot
Folkston, Charlton County, Georgia

What a job! He said there where multiple garbage bags of clothing, knick knacks, and just plain garbage to get rid of. He said they're still not finished. Makes me kind of thankful I stayed here. Less work and I get to sleep in my own bed. *smile* Now I understand that his father has major blockages in one or both of his legs and needs surgery. Poor man. When it rains it pours.

While perusing the Yahoo! News, which I try to do every evening, I noticed this interesting article titled "5 Things To Do With Old Sweaters".

They offered some really interesting ideas! From dog beds to pillow covers and purses, etc. I love this! I think that using old sweat shirts may work as well. Has anyone made any of these or anything similar? Please share. I enjoy "repurposing" old clothes and furniture.

Have a great evening folks!

Glad your husband made it back and I totally understand cleaning out. When my aunt and uncle died, we did the same, and it seemed the end would never come. I have never made anything out of anything, but wish I could. If you do, let me know.

So sorry about your father in law. We are facing new problems with my MIL. I've seen the sweater pillows. I think they are great, but I could never do it:) You go girl and try it and tell me how it worked out. I sleep in my own bed every night:) Can't handle his snores and he can't handle my restless leg.

Yes, I've felted sweaters and used them for all sorts of things. I'm sorry your FIL is doing poorly and know, all to well, what it's like to have to downsize, get rid of things, etc. - totally, Totally overwhelming!
