    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    wow, you did a great job on these.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Most any long term care facility will happily accept fidget quilts, especially ones with Alzheimer's units.

    Fidget Quilts

    Check with your local nursing homes. Alzheimer's patients love them. I love to make them. So creative!

    My Mom suffered from Alzheimers but at the time, I had never heard of these blankets. Otherwise I would of made her one. She did have a blanket that we kept on her lap or close by so she had something for her hands to do. Thank you for doing this. I know a lot of people will appreciate them.
