    A present for some one turning 100

    Just made this book shelf quilt for a gentle man that my wife does health care for .
    He loves my dog and has dog pictures all over his fridge of our dog.
    He is turning 100 on Jan 6 and hope it keeps him warm as he watches TV.

    What a thoughtful gift. Dogs bring so much joy :-) Your quilt is really nice-very realistic looking...I like that.

    You have created the perfect gift for an elderly gentleman. It poses the question of what do you give someone turning 100 and here is the answer. Something personal and practical.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love your quilt!! I was asked a question the other day about getting a gift for a 99 year old lady. I know this lady and she loves anything frilly and warm. They are still alive, everyone. He will appreciate this quilt so much.

    That is very creative to have thought this quilt up. I am sure he will be delighted with this gift.

    What a precious gift. The nursing home where my dad is has 2 little dogs that belong to 2 of the workers there, and they roam quietly around the halls and go up to the residents for a pet. I think of animals like little or big angels.

    Nice. Your dog is a dead ringer for our neighbor's dog and we love her a lot.
