Art of Alzheimer's: The Artist at Work





The artist with her creation.





The creation.





Or not. She wasn't done yet? Or the previous was never intended as a creation at all?







Trying to pull the hang tab off. (She cannot abide labels on anything. Towels, clothing, nothing!)







She successfully removed an offending paper label, but not the green hang tab.






Rearranging,






smoothing,








straightening.






Enough with the beads, these towels need folding.

How dear. I hate the labels, too, but the remainders after I remove them are impossible!!!

Your Mom's hands look so much like my Mom's hands.

Wish I could give both our Moms a hug right now.

It's so interesting to see the things she comes up with and I always wish I could hear her thoughts while she is making things.
