Inspired by a tragically sad news story from 2001, Howie Woo commemorated the memory of one Shirley Stockdale through a crocheted creation. Short story shorter, Shirley accidentally trapped her arm in her sofa bed and couldn't reach the telephone. She died two days later.

Howie Woo imagines the moment just before this sad accident. Read his account of the story that has haunted him for nine years on his blog. It's both disturbing and touching. I know that the 'Shirley Stockdale and the Sofabed' tale will forever remain with me.
