I received a handmade quilt for my 75th birthday.
My friend Joanne is a quilter.
I had asked if she could make my tee shirts into a quilt.
She said box em up and send them.
That was months ago.
I am stunned by the results.
I wanted to give her something.
So, at 3:30 am I got an idea.
I would make a video explaining what each of the 20+ panels means from my life.
Then I got a greater idea!
I will write 20+ stories telling the significance of each.
I told Joanne she had given me my life back.
I’ve been recently been diagnosed with vascular dementia.
I’m on a med and a patch.
I am easily distracted and forgetful.
But now, thanks to my Life Quilt, I have mental exercise, recollection, and will archive memories before they disappear.
Bless you Joanne.
So, beginning tomorrow with the Portland Oregon tee shirt, now Life Quilt, I will write the stories.
