Representing “THEM”!

We have a new little guy at the YMCA…

He is a Veteran... Likes to be called “Sarge”… due to being in a few WARS in his day…

Wearing his Veteran’s Cap… a little scraggly… and I knew immediately I liked him!…

 

He jokes… smiles… and is so appreciative of all we do…

having yourself be put in the hands of strangers is not easy!…

so we all try to make their day as bright as possible…

They usually leave very tired…

We talk to them…

have them MOVE … even if it’s bathroom check…

participate someway in a game…

or help in making a craft…

Today we continued to make our felt quilt squares... 

Each square represents something about the participant…

Dennis loves University of Kentucky… so go “Big Blue!”…

and Jordan… one of our sweet workers wishes she was on the beach!…

Since our new friend… was a Veteran… k18602835his square is represented with Red, White and Blue Stars…

Viola’s “Butterflies” are bejewelled… a “fancy” lady for sure!

They are all wonderful… full of color as we use scraps of material, ribbons, lace, fabric paint, buttons, sequins…etc. …

Thanks to Tiffany for thinking of this quilt idea… although we have decided to just hang them on a cord with colorful clothes pins in the room…

They all love them!…

It represents something about THEM!… 

Making it special!
