If only I would write the review as soon as I finish the book, all would be well. Of course, I don't. And from reading your blogs, you all have the same problem and frequently find yourself way behind in the reviewing.
Then, of course, you can't quite catch up because you have continued reading, working, and living! Blahhhh.
Two of the activities that are important to my version of living are doll-making and quilting. I've made several small art quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.
|We all hope that research will help find a preventative, a cure. In fact, this morning, I heard that insulin in a nasal spray showed promising results in slowing the slow deterioration of the brain.|
|We carry the hearts of our loved ones with us whether they remember us or not.|
|When Laddie was in assisted living and then a nursing home, patients would frequently approach me to ask if I would take them home. I wanted "home" to be cheerful, even if I couldn't take them.|
These will be sold at an AAQI auction and the proceeds donated to Alzheimer's Research. My quilts have been sent, but are not yet assigned.
The organization is all volunteer, all quilts are donated, and all proceeds are donated.
Some of my most recent doll finishes are Izannah Walker inspired. Harriet and Matilda are cloth and clay with weighted bottoms.
