Photo-a-Day - June 2012 - Day 24: On My Mind

Photo-a-Day - June 2012 - Day 24: On My Mind
The photos say it all--pardon the typo I can't seem to fix which should say "Finish this afghan".  I've been unemployed before, but never for this long and always knew I'd find something. Now it's been longer and much less certain.  Only those of us who are part of the long-term unemployed can really understand the anxiety and outright fear of the situation. 

However, in order to feel productive, useful and as if I'm contributing something, crocheting for charity has been a wonderful outlet.  I've had to buy very little yarn outright and most of what I have bought has been through Craigslist from other people de-stashing, but I've also had wonderfully generous people send me boxes of yarn for free.  Once learns just how kind and giving people can be.

This isn't the most stunning, interesting, or cheerful entry I've posted, but it's the most real.
