Iowa Falls, IA: Ladies Day-One Stitch At A Time


LADIES DAY — All beautiful things come together one stitch at a time.

We recently had a ladies day only activity. All the beautiful ladies of Heritage Care Center were invited to come together. It was a day to talk about knitting, crocheting, embroidery, and needlepoint and what you can make using these skills.

Our tables were covered with examples of flour cloth dish towels, doilies, blankets, hats, baby shoes, dresser scarves, and home decor. Residents and the activity department shared with us items they made or that family members made. Many items were heirlooms and will be treasured for years to come.

It was a delight to see the smiles on their faces and the warm memories that were recalled from holding these handmade items in their hands.

It is definitely true that all beautiful things come together….one stitch at a time…the ladies, the treasured memories, and the love that was put into those beautiful creations!
