A Mother's Day Gift...she made it!


My Mum is coming up for 94 and had been in hospital since January 1st, never thought she would get over her pneumonia but she came home this week! During visiting time I made her a lap blanket for Mother’s Day…didn’t think she would make it home so wasn’t planning flowers as a present…She has dementia so she may have forgotten me sat crocheting away…So I have been productive and now making a blanket for my friend but a star burst pattern…just wanted to share…

Thank you lovely people…I love this one so I am especially please to give it to her…she could have used it in hospital but we have had snow this week so will be handy to pop over her legs as her mobility is very limited and she sits a lot…and she has her toy boy (my Dad at 89) looking after her!!

You need to start selling them on here, although they would obviously take you a long time.
