    I have spent a few hours doing these for my daughter. There are 26 :lol: all together, so have more to finish. Then back to quilting.

    The hanging is for an Alzeimer's unit at a local care center. It is made with as many different textured fabrics as I had in my stash (including the felt and vinyl from an old letterjacket). Obviously not perfect, but I think the people touching it won't mind. I did machine embroidery around the edges and along the ribbons to add more texture.

    I thought maybe a resident had the name Jacob. I did Noel and Peace letters for Christmas one year. Did you add any buttons or snaps on your blocks. I know the busy tables for Dementia units have those on them to also stimulate and remind people of simple tasks. Awesome work.

    These are for the wall, but you have given me a great idea to bring up next week when I talk to the activities director again. I have tons of large buttons and some old larger-teeth zippers that I could do something with.

    Alzheimer's is an awful disease. I had quite a few clients with dementia. Your projects sound so interesting.

    Ohhh I remember making those. I did "T" and "C" for my oldest daugher when she was little. Her name is Theresa, but at the time she couldn't say it. She would say "TeeCeee" we just shortened it to TC. She's going to be 24 soon and we still call her that, much to her dismay LOL.

    The letters are a fun idea too.

    My sister's mother in-law is in a facility that has a child like day care area where they alzeimer's patients can "work" in a kitchen -wash dishes, put place settings out, "work" in laundry room _ wash towels and fold. I remember when Sally machine sewed from bolts of fabric beautiful suits for her boys and husband ! She was a seamstress ! A stay at home mother for all her adult married life. I think she would enjoy the letters AND your textured quilt hanging !

    A beautiful thought from you of both!
    Think about the letters. One suggestion was Noel. Maybe a good christmas Idea in the works there ??

    I made these letter pillows for grandchildren years ago. They loved them and slept with different letters each night. "I think I will sleep with the T pillow tonight!" Now I need to make some more for relatives and friends' children. Thanks for posting
