Once in the medical center/nursing home area, we moved Mom's calendar quilts into her room, but it was sad to see when she couldn't remember to change them out anymore.
It is hard to watch them go down hill. I agree, it shows some creativity. Mom was the one who taught me to sew. Mom loves to have something on her door. The other residents enjoy seeing what is hanging there so I change them often. They are fun to make.

This is a great door hanging for your mom. When my mom was is assisted living it was always fun to look at the various units that has door hanging or other designs. I am sure it will hit the spot.

It's beautiful! My mom lived in assisted living for the last 2 years of her life, which were so much more rewarding than had she lived at home. She always had beautiful things on her door and right outside of her doorway. We always joked that everyone else had to up their decorating game to keep up with her!

That should really brighten up her entrance to her room and for sure a conversation starter. Lucky Mom to have you to do that.
