A wonderful gift of love.
Kim, you would not believe this but this is the very thing I need to see. Our homemaker council project is 2nd wk. of Feb and we are all making fidget or fiddle lap type blanks for the nursing home in my county. I did make my version of one for show next Monday at my sewing and embroidery group. My husbands brother in law in FL has had rapidly spreading Alzheimer's and in June my sister in law [his wife] passed away and 2 months later their son, 49 y/o passed away. My son is POA and we have been going to FL, quite a long long drive from my state to pack up a house, throw out, clean, give away and to visit him + son taking care of business when he can get away from his job. It is such an undertaking for my son. Trying to help with all I can. Your love of your friend shows in this project and I can only hope to help my brother in law since I've know him since I was just a kid. Thank you for some suggestions to put on our future mats.
I can see how much you love her in every stitch you took. You really planned this out to get such a variety of colors and items. It is a diffcult disease and it is good that you are standing by her side.
Stunning work done!!
The fiddle mat is a wonderful item for your friend. It is so heartbreaking when our friends and loved ones go thru this awful progression with Alzheimer. Prayers for you, your friend and her family.
You've done a great job and she will get many hours of use!
She will love it when I worked in a home they undid and did up buttons for hours and always thought I would make some but never have love yours:):)
A great piece of work and I have enjoyed reading about your friend and how this has been made with love
This is a wonderful idea and you made it for her. This heartbeaking disease affects so many and it is so hard when she is such a good friend. It is truly a gift of love. Well done, Kim!! Hugs to you and prayers for your dear friend!
I'm so glad you knew something to do constructive and from the heart in the face of this awful disease. So sorry you are gradually losing your friend and her memories of you two.
What a fantastic project and you are such a wonderful friend to make this....all the fabric choices and bright colors will be so helpful....great job....
