A book worth reading!

Last night I finished reading the book Still Alice by Lisa Genova. I couldn't put it down. My father has been diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment which could move to Alzheimer's Disease in the future. This book gives you an inside look at what it's like from the perspective of the Alzheimer's sufferer rather than the care giver. Even if you don't know someone who has this awful disease, I highly reccommend reading this book! It's moving and eloquent. It will change how you view this disease and your own life.

On another note...we are working on turning pin cushions today. I help with the sanding and buffing when needed. I am also the quality control expert. :) After all the peasant in the workshop needs to turn to Milady's standard! :)

Have a fun day stitching!

  1. Gee Gloria .. thank you SO much! You're right .. this was an incredible book, and with the problems I'm going through right now with my mom (and having lost my dad to this disease), it was well worth reading/understanding.
    HOWEVER .. I now see too many symptoms in myself (LOL) and having finished the book last evening, woke up with hives! (deep sigh/LOL)
