Art of Alzheimer's

Mom received this little package of gummi coins for Easter. Like goes with like.

I spent almost two hours yesterday talking to a reporter for the local newspaper. I had met her at the craft show I did last month. Her dad had AD, and recently died from an aggressive cancer. We discussed everything from the animals, to the spinning and felting I do, to the lack of any support services for caregivers in the area, unless you can afford the $20.00 an hour, that is. I don't know what the focus of the article will be, but she says it will be front page with color photos, jumping to an interior page with black and white photos. Free advertising for me, I guess, but I think the caregiver support aspect is the more important story. Guess I'll find out next week.

i google gummi coins and learned nothing, but by enlarging your photo i figured it out. and got a nice close-up your fabric!

congrats on the newspaper story. i hope it brings you lots of business. the human interest aspect with the AD thing will make it really special.

Sorry, I didn't know what to call them. I coined the expression. Hahaha, I slay myself. Anyway, as you figured out, they're little candies fashioned from that gummi bear stuff.

Took me a minute to see the real coins in the photograph. I love it. I hope you'll frame some of these.

I loved your creativity with the felt scraps. Sorry that you had to be creative.

We're due for a snow tonight and tomorrow. Hopefully it will all be outside in our house.
