Fidget Blanket ~ Garden Birds
“Life is like a tapestry, woven from memories of people and events. Your unique tapestry reminds you of who you are, where you've been and what you've done.”
Sadly, Alzheimer's disease gradually takes these memories.
As loved ones’ age, it becomes increasingly important that they live in the present, in a way that preserves the essence of who they are. Providing elders with comfort, warmth and activity improves quality of life and helps them to relax and enjoy treasured memories of a life lived to the fullest.
This 24” lap blanket is light, warm and comforting backed with fleece material. The colours and photos are reminiscent of the outdoors in the garden. The prints used on this blanket are by the wildlife artist Pollyanna Pickering, I have transferred them onto cotton and appliqued them on to the quilt. Included are a wren, great tit, blue tit, goldfinch and mistle thrush. There are some familiar items attached to fidget with such as a silk flower, a wooden peg, a scourer and a soft rope. The squares are made of raised cotton and really soft fleece. The colours are blues and greens to reflect the outdoors.
These memory support blankets can be personalized using your own photos of people, places or pets and will take approx 1 week to make up.
