    They came out nice. I use to work in a nursing home as an Activity Assistant. The bibs you made will be a nice reminder to him and everyone else there that he is greatly loved.

    Anything you can do to brighten your parents day during this difficult journey is a blessing. It sounds like your bibs are right on target! Thanks for sharing them. I will look at season dish towels with new eyes from now on.

    The facility my mom was in told me the patients have gotten thir arms, legs and heads stuck under the bed rails or they try to climb over them. They also do not have foot rests on the wheelchairs because the patient will try to stand up on them and fall flat on their faces. Ask for a lower bed, my mom got a lower bed and they also put down pads on the floor like gym mats.

    Wonderful bibs! Yours are nicer than any I've made. Hint: I found, by experience, that pockets at the bottom help keep things cleaner.

    Very nice! Heck, i have one that a friend made for me. I keep it in my car and once i pull away from the drivethru that "bib" is on me. I don' t take any chance of spilling coffee or food on my clothing. I am in my car a lot and i love having it. I also keep another hand towel and wet wipes in the car too.

    Glad to hear that these brighten our Moms' day. I totally understand what you are going thru. My mom was in a nursing home 13 months due to stroke and dementia. Heart breaking. You learn how strong you are and have to be going through it. It is an amazing experience in many ways. Hugs to you and your family.

    Thank you. You are all so kind.

    Sierra, why not, I am thinking of making one for myself... at home. LOL

    Sandygirl, you are one smart cookie. Reality is... we spill! I don't mind so much at home but when I am out I hate for others to see how sloppy I can be. I try not to be but it never fails.
