Oh my, what have I done, what have I done?? LOL I stopped at several more places (it's actually part of my job and while I'm there anyway...) asking about their needs and now I think I'm stretching it a little too thin. You should have seen the administrators and social workers eyes light up when I told them what I wanted to do. So now I and my two neophyte crafters have two nursing homes, a residential care facility and two hospices to craft for. I left my number for the responsible person at another nursing home and another hospice and am waiting to hear from them about their needs.
Anyway the list of needs haven't changed much but it has expanded, if you could please take the time to make a few squares or a tote I would sure appreciate it.
6" or 12" squares for lapghans (may also be used for Project Linus blankets), if you have some of other sizes I will also take them.
Lapghans, lap robes or blankets A good size for lapghans is about 3' X 4' or somewhere in that vicinity.
**Wheelchair or walker totes** (This is what really made their eyes light up) Here's some links to patterns.
Activity aprons (see this post)
Summer weight Chemo Caps
The residential care facility asked for hats, scarves and mittens for next winter.
One nursing home also asked for items that could be sold in their Country Store, the proceeds go to their activity fund.
