Oh. I thought you said that relatives were either dead or lived 5000 miles away. Looks like you are stuck in a rock in a hard place.I guess you aren't seeing my responses. I only have one friend who lives 5000 miles away from me. All of her friends are dead. Relatives live clear across the states. Neighbors are either working or too shady (bad people) to trust her with. I can't help her down the steps which she needs help with.
susanm9006 i have lots of card board and so it will work out just fine ... thanks though for the suggestionThere is heavy duty plastic you can purchase at fabric stores that I use for my patterns. You can cut it with a scissors or an exacto knife and it holds up well to using it over and over.
