Monday Morning Star Count - Respect for the Aged Day

Today is a national holiday in Japan - Respect for the Aged Day.  I made this little bag (with three fussy cut hexagons) for my mother in law, who lives in a long term care facility.  I used matching fabric to make a tissue cover and a little lavender sachet. Lavender is grown in Hokkaido, so we hope she will think of us when she smells it.


 

Ted took it to her in the US and said she was happy with it.

  4. Respect For The Aged Day..and a national holiday! A wonderful concept. Not only because I am a senior...did I say that!! But in the USA, the concept is commonly that the older you are the less you know and somehow become invisible to the younger generation.
