I just took a pile of these mats to a local nursing home. They were so excited to use them. I used your pattern as a starting point and have varied it, using different themes and color schemes.

I am crocheting the Fiddle Mat right now. I want to make all them, the muffs and the cuffs also. It looks like a lot of fun too. You can make all kinds of ornaments for the mat. I am going to take these to the Nursing home as soon as I get them done

The day I visited life-long friend who has Alzheimer's disease, I noticed that she was moving her fingers back and forth on her lap. I came home, and voila! There was your pattern for a "Fiddle Mat." I did not know that many people with this disease make these motions with their hands. I am now crocheting a mat for her, and am so grateful to be able to do something helpful for someone for whom now, so little help can be given by old friends. If it turns out well, it will be an opportunity for me to do more mats at home and contribute them to others. Thank you.

My husband is in the VA Nursing Home with dementia. When I saw your pattern, I was very excited about crocheting these items. I asked one of the nurses about using the mats for the patients, she also was very excited. When I told her I had one mat made she said she couldn't wait to use it. Thank you for having this pattern available for me to make for the men who served our country. Karen Hubbard
