Wrap around skirts and cabaret, how fun! Good luck with the alteration, it looks to be fairly simple.

I wasn't in the hospital after my surgery, but I was stuck in my bed for over a week and having a basket of stuff to keep me busy saved my sanity! My basket was full of stuff friends gave me as well as a bunch of stuff I added myself: new music, entertainment on demand (Netflix, Hulu, etc.), books to read, crossword puzzles or Soduko, coloring books & crayons. If there is a craft she likes, a kit of supplies to do that is also very appreciated.

Love the skirt its a great fabric, don't worry about the prize when it comes it cones no rush. Sorry to hear about your friend, my only suggestion would be some stuff to do, maybe adult colouring  books or cross stitch and maybe some audio books. Have a great week. X

I can't imagine my sewing room not being a hot mess any more. And if I didn't have a gazillion things in progress, I'd be worried.

I love the skirt. I like the flare it has.

Jen's ideas for the basket are great.

I love that skirt. I think it's great the way it is, but your solution seems like a good one.

Maybe if she doesn't already have a premium account for hulu or netflix or Amazon that would be nice. I saw that Amazon prime is going to include audible.com too, so I'm going to check that out. I think really it depends on her and how she is feeling and what she likes to do. My dad read during his chemo stays. He read a lot. My mom when she was stuck in the rehab hospital before her stroke, did a lot of crossword puzzles and watched a lot of gameshows and played solitaire. I think the gas cards are a really good idea, though. Does she (can she) do any crafts at all? It would be good to find out from a nurse how much other patients feel like doing. Maybe even adult coloring books or kids activity books might be a fun diversion. Not everyone gets into that sort of thing though. You might try to find out from her husband after they have been doing this for a little bit, and by then he might have more suggestions too. And for him. Maybe board or card games that they could play together, but don't need a bunch of people.

Exciting video with the falling and all that ;D

The skirt looks gorgeous - have fun modifying it!

Most of the people I've known in the hospital just wanted some of their own things and stuff to keep them busy because it was sooooo boring.
