Moving Along

I can see progress this week, and it is a truly wonderful feeling. I am starting to get some long-term projects completed and I am looking forward to starting some new work… finally. In fact the fabric has been cut, the paint gathered and tomorrow I have promised myself a little painting session.

Another bit of good news came in the mail. Ami Simms sent me a copy of the Alumni magazine for Kalamazoo College. As Ami is a grad they did a really nice article about her and the Alzheimer’s project. The writer, Emma Perry did a wonderful job interviewing Ami and conveying the objective of Ami’s Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative. The other thing that Emma did was to include photos of six of the quilts that are touring with the Alzheimer’s: Forgetting Piece by Piece exhibit and on of them was “Nevilyn”. I was overwhelmed.

Never discourage anyone who continually makes progress, no matter how slow. --Plato
