The residents of Roslyn Lodge received some beautiful handmade items today, hand knitted ‘Fiddle Muffs’ and lovely bright ‘crocheted blankets’. Special thanks to Narelle Bonsall who brought them into Roslyn Lodge for all to enjoy. They were kindly knitted by Narelle’s mother and her aunty.
The fiddle muffs are a fantastic idea and have little buttons and items that are wonderful for texture and sensation along with reminiscence about using them as a child. My own Aunt had Muffs for her bridesmaids in her wedding.
Pictured is Dorothy Drew staying warm on this cool winter day with her new muff and blanket. Such a lovely gesture. Thank you all.
