A Doily for 7 West

7 West was the floor where my husband spent 3 week after his cancer surgery. They had the nicest nurses, aides and assorted staff members that we have ever met. They made us feel like family.  (I kidded them that Gene was that relative who came for Thanksgiving and never left.)

This doily was designed with them in mind. I hope you enjoy it.
