Hee hee, fun! Now I do hoped it had a few boozy miniatures to take the pain away and other equally useful stuff…

That’s one lucky niece!!! I just love how you’ve added the First Aid cross and the embroidery. I’ve followed the links to see how you did the patchwork… I have to try this.

Very thoughtful! I appreciated having first-aid supplies with me when I travelled. You never know when you find yourself in need of antiseptic ointment and bandaids without your language dictionary handy. (I may have some experience with needing to explain things at a chemist’s in Russia…)

Oh, how sweet of you! I hope she appreciates it (I bet she will). Especially if there are some Dora the Explorer Band-Aids in there!! It’s such a pretty pouch.

That’s a truly loving gesture. I bet it’ll mean a lot to her, actually. And, if old… old and wise.
