Width: 11.25"   Length: 8"

Materials/Techniques: Materials are cotton fabric and bamboo batting. My daughter and granddaughter very carefully chose the binding fabric to highlight the lavender flowers on the background fabric. The symbolic paths are from OESD Sashiko 2, NB333_48. The flowers are OESD Asian Impressions 851, OC85107. The designs are embroidered with jungle green Art Studio 40 wt. thread from Superior Threads.

Artist Statement: Alzheimer’s affects all of us during our journey on “Paths of Life”. The path of Alzheimer’s is frequently traveled by spouses, loved ones, and friends whether victim or caretaker. Great sadness is on the path. The “Paths of Life” carries great distress and pain but also the wish for joy, laughter and recognition of a loved one. May the “Paths of Life” bring happy, joyful memories today.

Dedication: Dedicated to all of us on our journey of life. Happy, wonderful and joyful memories today, tomorrow and on our "Paths of Life".
