    they are wonderful. good for you. i belong to a senior club here in lindenhurst and it feels great when we get a note back from the staff or the family saying how much they appreciate the quilt. so i know how you feel. hope you can enjoy making many more quilts for donation. have a wonderful new year.

    My hat's off to you -- you are doing a great thing!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    What a big heart you have. My daughter also works at a nursing home and I have been sending lap quilts to the residence there as well. God Bless you and your family.

    Thank you for doing such a wonderful thing for the residents. Many of them have nobody and nothing to call their own. Our guild does lap quilts for a nursing home and it never ceases to amaze me as to how grateful people are for things that we take for granted. You are a special soul!

    What you are doing is so wonderful! It's no wonder the residents are going wild over your quilts, they are really great. Just think, you are not only adding the warmth and comfort of a quilt to their lives, but also a great deal of excitement and something fun to talk about! Kudos to you!

    Even tho DH has passed, I still bring lap robes to the nursing home. It is such a delight to walk the hallways and see residents with the lap robes draped over their legs in wheel chairs. The aides like them because they do not get caught in the wheels. Also it is a fun way to try a new quilt block pattern.
