A bundle of sleeves.

For some reason the first wife's mother kept the sleeves from several shirts, I unrolled the bundle today (What you think I'd throw away all of those textile treasures??? Bite your tongue!) mostly because this bit of madras type fabric was peaking out, looking all spring like.

Love the way she butted the torn edges together, adding some matching threads and stitched them together with the skill of a surgeon!

  Imagine my joy when I discovered that it had been mended, and in several places.
