The lazy crafters' guide to making a T-shirt rug

This project is quite easy, and it's also immensely rewarding. It let me keep old (unwearable) clothes without cluttering my drawers. It gave them a new, useful and pretty life. It's easy and quick enough to get actually finished in a few days. It leaves behind minimal craftermath. And my favorite part — since it seems I'm getting old and lazy — for the most part it can be done while sitting on the sofa, watching reruns of Grey's Anatomy.

The Cherry Cordial Revolution: Do I help Grandma, or do I follow the rules?

At 96, my Grandma Clara Yeager was pissed. Dad and his siblings sent her to live at Woodbridge Nursing Home. We visited her once a week while Grandma groused at Dad for putting her there in the first place. One day, a nurse took Dad out of the room for a private chat. My sister wasn't there that day, and Grandma took the occasion to make a request — bring her some cherry cordials. Grandma rarely talked to me, much less made a direct request so I didn't ask why — my dad returned to the room and it was clear this was secret. Do I help Grandma? Or do I follow the rules and refuse to buy Grandma her cherries?
