An Executive Decision!!

Our darling neighbor lost a lot of weight when his dear wife passed away last year.  He is in his late 80s, maybe early 90s.  He has told me several times that when he is watching TV or reading in his recliner, he just can't get warm regardless of what he does.

So, my brother and I decided that what he needed was an oversized lap quilt with MINKEE on the back!!

When we took it over to him he just could not stop petting the Minkee!!  He loved it and the Minkee matched his carpet, just like we knew what we were doing!!

Today he came over with a little bag of squeekie cheese and he said it was just like a sedative and sooooooooo warm!!


I keep saying, there is nothing better than a quilt!!

So nice of you--especially to work with Minkee!
Maybe that is what I need to do for my Dad!

What a wonderful thing for you to do. So thoughtful. It is a great quilt and the minkee on the back should make for the perfect cuddle quilt. Nice to think that neighbors watch out for one another.
