Later, I decided to cut a few triangles and play around with it for a bit. I got a layout that I liked, so I sat down and pieced it together. After cutting out a tail to applique, I pinned it to the block, pinned the block to my bedroom curtain, and went to bed contemplating what I'd do with the pretty little thing once it was finished.
I hope that she likes it ! She's around my age and has lost both legs
below the knee, to diabetes, I suspect. She was the
first person to befriend hubby and myself when he went
into the nursing home. She taught us the ins and outs of the place, hurrying
back to her room to loan us a marker to use
to label his clothing so that it wouldn't get lost.
She just really went out of her way to be helpful.
I love seeing her cheery face when I go back there to
visit, and yet, I look forward to the day she
tells me she's "gettin' out !"
