    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Beautiful. I know she will love it. My mom blew a knee last year and had surgery, ended up using a walker for several months (we hid her crutches for fear she would hurt herself more, she was very unstable.) I made her a similar bag and it was so handy. I was surprised at just how much stuff she managed to put in there and left her hands free.

    Very pretty and so thoughtful of you to make it for her. So hard to try to get things from one place to another when you have to hold onto to the handles.

    Very nice! I made a walker tote for my Uncle Bob last year, starting with a pre-made tote you buy to embellish yourself, which I did with a fishing theme and found iron on embroidered letters I spelled out his name across the top with. I added some machine embroidery as well. He loves it, and in his retirement complex, he never looses his walker amongst the many there, and has had so many compliments on it! I think everyone that has a relative or special friend that depends on a walker should receive one customized for them. SUCH a useful and thoughtful gift to receive!!

    As a person who uses a walker, wow, what a gift. I use mine all the time and need the pockets for extras and, for me, a bag big enoigh to hold my oxygen. She is going to be tickled
