I stumbled across a garage sale which was actually a son clearing out his mom's stuff after she died unexpectedly after Sx. It looked like my life on the lawn, crafts, sewing patterns, crafts etc. Inside a bear pattern all the material was cut out and the bear's feet were the only part sewn together. I finished the bear and gave it back. He will give it to his daughter for her birthday in September.
I left the stitches the grandmother had done showing on the feet.
This made me feel sad, happy and determined.
