Fabric Remnant inspiration at All Children’s

Still traveling, but didn’t want to negate my commitment to post once a week in 2011, so I’ll comment a bit on uses I’ve noticed for fabric remnants.

Spent Monday at All Childrens Hospital in Saint Petersburg, FL. What a beautiful hospital, with fun things for kids to do, a pretty decent dining room,and spotless cleanliness throughout. Outside the surgery department was a pirate ship to play on, made of a heavy spongy material so that if someone conked their head, it would just bounce off unhurt! Yay, and shiver me timbers!

A pirate's life for wee!


In the corridor toward the surgery area was a film projector from the ceiling showing little game boards on the floor where kids can pop the balloons, catch fishes and octopi, and do other dances and games that show up on the floor in all their sparkly effects! The several waiting rooms had games, toys, books and TV shows, and if one got tired of all that, he or she could walk a ways down the hall and “ride” on some of the hard spongy rubber animals or a dolphin. When it is time to leave, you can exit through the covered walkway to the parking garage, which is part of the hospital building that extends over the street and connects to the garage!

Remnant ideas: I saw a few beautiful quilts and wall hangings. One special quilt featured photo images on the cloth pieced top, along with bright colored blocks and embroidery commemorating the hospital’s move to its current new building. The quilt was a work of art AND history!
I saw several girls with shaven heads come out of the surgery area. One was wearing a pretty bandana. It wouldn’t take much fabric to make a cute headscarf for a kid who’s had to lose her hair for a little while.

    On Knitting Paradise a number of folks knit Cemo hats for adults and children
    which seem rather bulky to me. I wonder about doing some in finer yarn and very ruffled for a young lady. Perhaps I should spend time on something like that instead of Market Bags and knitted rats (my latest project ;o). I’m happy you continue to find things to inspire you whether literal or not. Enjoy Hon!
