The staff at the nursing home my mom lives in goes out of its way to make any event festive for the residents. If there isn't a holiday coming up, they have tons of other ideas for activities to try to make life more pleasant for their special guests.
This year, they have asked the families to buy or make a Christmas ornament and hang it on the tree in the activity room. Because my mom excelled at celebrating Christ's birth, I knew this was something she would expect me to help with. I stitched these ornaments a couple years ago, and this afternoon I plan to drop them off before I visit her.
Do you remember seeing this on the blogs a couple years ago? I finally got the binding on mine. And while my picture-taking skills aren't what I wish they were, it did turn out really cute; and I hope to hang this in her room.
