World Alzheimer's Day is coming up on September 21st.

The readers who *know* us also know that my husband has had dementia for some years.

It can be quite cruel to watch those you love suffer the consequences of dementia - no matter which type it is.

Just for the record my man has vascular dementia.

I describe it as - his brain went on holiday and forgot to come back.

Somehow this post is supposed to be going to link back to Ami Simms site.

Ami is doing wonderful things to raise awareness and to help with funding for research, she has an art quilt initiative, in an older post there is a small quilt of mine called "confused in the top paddock" this will be sent to Ami for the auction.

If you are reading this and wondering whether and/or how to participate

Visit http://www.alzquilts.org/ and learn more about Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts (on-going small quilt auction). All profits go to Alzheimer's research" - IT'S AWESOME!!! AND the quilts are beautiful & creative!

Hi Sandra,
You have a way of bringing even dementia down to earth! Love your quilt name 'confused in top paddock'- related to kangaroos at all? Sharon
