    Re: tea towels

    Was watching my DH BBQ and had a flash. He needs a boa with a heavy-duty potholder, maybe denim?, on one end and a towel on the other. Something manly of course.

    Suzanne, have you thought of making your Mom a fidget lap robe/pillow to help her get her hand back? It could be something for her to do while you hand sew. Just a thought.

    Re: Totes for children
