Virtual Quilt Patch in memory of my Mum Florence Edwards
Today is World Alzheimer's Day and I just wanted to remember my Mum today who suffered from this. I only have a few items of embroidery which were hers and one knitted shawl she made for my daughter when she was a baby. I will never part with it. I keep it in a plastic bag in the bottom of my chest of drawers. Also I have a linen table cloth which she kept but I don't think she made, so I look after that in the same way.
If you want to know more about Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative then click on the purple patch I created for my Mum. They are trying to raise awareness of this disease, it seems to me that it needs this as many people suffer from it, many husbands, wives, partners and children suffer too because they become carers and all too often they are left to cope on their own. I just want to thank Diane Gaudynski for raising my own awareness of this day through her blog.
