Last Wool and Testament

by Cynthia Chow
& Molly MacRae

The only way for textile preservationist Kath Rutledge’s thirty-ninth birthday to have been worse would have been for it to have been her fortieth birthday instead. She hadn’t planned on spending the day returning home to Blue Plum, Tennessee for her much loved grandmother Ivy McClellan’s funeral, and Kath definitely hadn’t planned on getting pulled over by an arrogant deputy for speeding. That he called Kath’s grandmother “Crazy Ivy” and implied that she was a murderer definitely put the capper on what was becoming a completely horrific day.
