I have been busy preparing things for Mum to do while she is staying at my sister's place.
I find that I have to get Mum to do things to keep her mind active (dementia), so I always cut things out and place things in front of her and mention what she has to do. I do everything except the sewing...she is still a perfectionist when it comes to sewing.
Mum LOVES doing applique on her machine, so I am bagging each item separately with its matching top & bobbin threads... labeling EVERYTHING.
The I found this Chook Shed pattern and started cutting one out...and thought..what the heck!...I'll cut 2 out and Mum can blanket stitch both of these.
Mum use to knit the cotton dish cloths, but now she has forgotten how to knit.... so I must keep the sewing up, plus she reads a weekly Scottish magazine (People's Friend), and
sleeps watches TV.
Tomorrow I must get some hand stitching prepared for me.
Until next post...
