Last year I made my mother a friendship braid quilt in her favorite colors. 6 months later she was moved to a nursing home from assisted living. She could not take most of her favorite nick-nacks with her but she was allowed to take the quilt. Beside some pictures, that is all she was able to take with her. Last weekend when I visited her - the quilt was gone. Needless to say I brought it to their attention and 4 days later they found it. Whew - now I can sleep tonight.
