Some photos of the past week

I haven’t posted anything all week – in the beginning I was feeling uninspired – and at the end of the week I was at a conference on Alzheimer’s Research and Care at Duke University. Not once during the conference did anyone mention the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative, but I do want to mention it here as it is a wonderful cause. I was so impressed with the research that is being done in the field. I am sure there will be a cure for this devastating disease.

While I was spending my week feeling uninspired by quilting and inspired by Alzheimer’s research, Sherry was busy quilting away. She’s been working on instructions for these projects for the Slap Happy Quilters and for you–and I’ll help finish them into final handouts next week.  All of these were cut with the Accuquilt GO. We made all but the second one into kits at our last quilt retreat, and Sherry’s been working on them.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. I do find it interesting that the ALS Quilt Initiative was not mentioned. On the other hand, frequently I’ve been at such conferences and they overlook recognition of programs that heighten awareness and/or do fundraising. But I’d personally be bothered if they recognized others and forgot to mention the quilt initiative, which has done so much. Can you clarify? Not that I’d stop supporting, but I would want to write letters to help heighten awareness with the respective trustees. this initiative has done amazing things for this very worthy cause.

    Great post. I hope you’ll find your inspiration soon. This conference may have just taxed you and your artistic talents are taking time to contemplate.



    1. They didn’t mention other research donors except for the major private research foundation and NIH. I still found myself wanting to go up to the microphone during Q&A and speak up about the AAQI. Maybe next year I’ll be brave enough to do that–even take a little quilt or two or see if one of the local guilds would set up a display. See, you’re giving me ideas. . .
