    What a nice thing for you to do. I know they are going to love it.

    Got that covered k3n--Rachel will do a photo shoot. I was thinking though--there won't be much to take photos of--just me holding up different stuff--boring. Plus--you have seen them all at one time of another. I will tell her to try to get the residents.

    Another thing I thought of--while doing chores--is to take extra blocks so pass around so they could feel and see them? There are many extras of the floral and others....

    I wonder how they'll like those wild pillowcases I made last summer. :lol:

    Hi Karla. Before I read further down the post I was thinking to also share about what inspired you to make each piece. Also any mishaps you may have had along the way...In any event you all will have a memorable time! You sharing, and them ooohing & Awwwwing. Enjoy yourself!

    If you'd like to make more work for yourself, then make a card for each one saying the name of the quilt, the pattern/block name, techniques used, date made.

    If you have the time and interest, consider starting a quilting circle there, giving beginner lessons as needed.

    Oh gosh Lisanne--no way I have time for that... nice idea though. :D

    I tried starting a writer's group at one assisted living place--but none of them would do their homework! I told them if they were in my class I'd put them all on detention. :wink: My grandmother warned me that would happen. :lol:

    I'm back from kayaking--took 140 photos! I'll post them in chit-chat later...

    I know you will have a wonderful time doing your one woman show! :lol:

    Just a note though is to count before and after! If you could, number each piece to make sure you have them all. Little accidents happen and I would hate for you to not return with all your pieces.

    Having some sample blocks for them to see the front and the back is a really great idea, from a teachers point of view! :lol:

    Good luck and have fun! Let us know how it turned out.
    Anchor the labels securely - maybe use different colors for the two categories?

    Not to worry. I threw that out as a thought, not to put you on the spot to actually do it. However, they might be more likely to do the quilting homework, because they can do it together, in a quilting circle. Writing is much harder, because you have to think things up.

    Saw those photos - just beautiful! I was in the Finger Lakes area last February and hope to make it back in the summer someday.

    Karla, you will have a great time and you won't be lost for words.
    You'll be treating this "adventure" just like you do when they come to visit the horses.
    Have a wonderful time and I know those seniors will too!
