In October 2022 CPQG accepted administrative responsibility for Comfort Covers. Lenore C. and Lynn S. stepped up to organize the collection and distribution of quilts and other covers (beds, heads, and hands).
In March we made fidget quilts for local nursing homes and children with special needs. These are a little larger than a place mat and filled with all sorts of textures. We included marble tracks, small fluffy pillows, gently scratchy bits, floppy fake fur, buttons, zippers, jeans pockets, and more. The sky (or your junk drawer) is the limit. The only requirement is everything is fastened securely and is washable.
Friday, February 10 we made excellent progress on making walker bags for Comfort Covers. Several people brought in finished bags made at home, others cut out new parts, and some made pockets. All had a good time as we produced 28 bags. These will go to local personal care homes.
Many thanks to those who came: BethB, JillW, LeslieD, BarbZ, Peggy T, PeggyR, CindyR, LindaU, FranH, JoyceD, and LenoreC. At the end of the day, we had 18 made. Additional kits were taken to make more bags at home.
The pattern is here if you would like to join in on the fun.
Many thanks to NancyS, JudyR, LynnS, SallyR, MonaH, PeggyT, PeggyR, LenoreC, JulieR, FranH, JillW, LeslieD, BarbZ, and BeckyT.
