    Aunt Kay loves Maxine. Treasureit was kind enough to send me one of her leftover Maxine panels. So I used it for a bag for Aunt Kay. Aunt Kay lives 'down at the home' and mentioned that the other residents had personal signs on their doors and I made her a special sign of her own. Her favorite color is yellow and she has always grown roses. Since Aunt Kay is getting up there in years and is ready for the next stage 'at the home', I made her an adult bib with her name on it. She loves flowers and I had this violets collar panel for years... finally found a use for it. As you can see from the pics, she was thrilled to receive them when I was on my vacation last month.

    that looks like something I could use at home. I for some reason or other seem to drip onto my blouses or my t shirts. Would protect my clothing.

    How sweet of you to do those projects for Aunt Kay!! I love Maxine, too. She is a funny lady!
    I sure hope if and when the time comes that I have to go to "the home" that someone will make nice things for me!!! Though I hope that time won't be too soon. One can never know though and I am have reached the 70 mark already! OH MY!!

    I love your Aunt Kay!~she's a gem! so pretty and sweet looking. Very thoughtful and practical gifts. I'm sure she felt like a queen when you gave them to her and has enjoyed using them and showing them off to her friends. :)

    Very sweet of you. I know when my mother was "in the home" everyone had different door hangings for each holiday. It was always nice to see the doors so colorful and cheerful.
