Kicking ass and taking names… isn’t that a line from some movie? Well, I don’t think I am really kicking ass so much, but I am indeed taking names.
I am participating in the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative effort by helping create the new exhibit “Alzheimer’s Illustrated: From Heartbreak to Hope.”
In order to do my part, I need 53 more names of people who had or have Alzheimer’s disease. Can you help me? Give me the name of someone directly affected , I will put it on the quilt for you.
I am adding the names of Carol Woodworth, my friend who now has 24/7 care in her home. She is a quilting friend, one responsible for getting me involved with quilters locally.
And I will add the name of Lois Brown. She was my brother in law’s Mom, the Grandma to my nephews Glenn and Steve. I watched her Alzheimer’s disease progress as she went from artist and University Professor, wife and Mom and Grandma….. to child-like person who was confined to a nursing home for many years before she died.
Please tell me who you would like to honor by adding their name to a comment here. If you prefer, you may email me directly at mazonsquiltingATcertaintyDOTnet (replace the at and dot.) with the names instead.
