Every year, for Yarndale, the lovely Lucy from Attic24 organises a massive community art project and invites all her blog readers to take part. Last year it was Mandalas, the year before it was Bunting. This year it is Flowers for Memories. An idea that is very close to my heart because my Mum has Alzheimers and we are really beginning to struggle with her now. After more than five years of just about being able to cope my Dad is starting to show signs of wearing out. So, with my Mum and Dad in mind, I set to, with hook and yarn and managed to make some brightly coloured offerings to send for this years Yarndale, Flowers for Memories, crocheting as many good memories as I could into my brightly coloured offerings.
I found this poem on Facebook courtesy of a friend and colleague of mine - for those of us coping with this terrible illness, it says it all.
And now we are making a massive pot of curry each for dinner!
Love O. xx
