I started this very simple 4-patch quilt a few weeks ago – it is intended to be a gift to a resident at the care center who has nothing special on her bed, just the standard issue pink quilted bedspread that is threadbare. This lady entered the care center after Mom did and even though neither could speak well after strokes, they enjoyed each other’s company.
Back to the sheets – wow, what a subject! I totally understand the corner straps/garters – I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s and wore hose as a teenager. Pantyhouse were an overpriced luxury – one runner and it all got tossed in the trash. My mom would hear none of that! But, the sheets – it’s not the corners where I have the most trouble – it’s in the middle of the bed, about where my butt lays. Everytime I turn over, I create another fold in the fitted sheet. I am glad to hear that I’m not the only one exasperated with sheets!
Connie recommended the book “The Girl on the Train” and I have been reading any spare moment – it’s very disturbing but compelling and I still cannot figure out what has happened. Now that’s the description of a good book!
