quilting


I am not ready to write about what is going on... life is truly horrible with my Mom.

During the long nights when I cannot sleep - I have been quilting. I made a baby quilt for my friends' first grandchild. Babies bring us such hope and joy.

The other quilt is small, it is a quilt for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.

This group was responsible for the touring quilt exhibit "Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece".

The quilts that are donated are auctioned off to raise money, which is distributed as grants to many different Alzheimer's groups.

If you are in the Houston area this first week of November, there will be an exhibit/sale of 1000 of these AAQI art quilts at the International Quilt Festival, Exhibit Hall, Row S.

Your quilting sounds so productive. I am on a home reorganization project, but need to have one Christmas tree skirt quilt done in November. You inspire me, Mariarose! In 2011 I need to quilt! I also go through bouts of insomnia worrying about my husband's Alzheimer's and expenses down the road.I am in a ALZ Memory Walk in November. Do you have those in your area?

Hugs,
Carol

I'm sorry about your mother. Quilting is such good therapy. I made one of the quilts on display at the show. Mine is called, "Celebrate!" Maybe you've seen it. I love making quilts for AAQI. It's a wonderful charity.
