Today, the 21st of September is a special day!
It is also the World Alzheimer's Day. The average age we live is going up and up, which is very nice. One of our greatest fears, however, when we grow older is Alzheimer. A dirty word, a fearful word ...go away, we don't want to think about it! Let's hope science will find a cure quickly, or some medicine that slows the process down.
These quilts are also called comfort quilts and they can be made for autistic children as well. We are going to make a lot more of these lap quilts and donate them to the home outside of Sparta, where they have an Alzheimer unit and a unit with physically and/or mentally handicapped children.
