G for Genetics (A to Z Challenge)

As I mentioned earlier, Alzheimer's disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disease. It is characterized by the loss of connections between nerve cells (neurons) in the brain; and the death of these nerve cells. There are two types of Alzheimer's—early-onset and late-onset. Both types have a genetic component.

I will not bore you with too much science but for those interested here is more info.

Thank goodness that this dreadful illness doesn't run in my family but no one in my family has vitiligo either - I do...

Now, something that is not in the A to Z Challenge but something that put a big smile on my face. Look what Royal Mail brought to me

I didn't decide yet how I will stitch those lovely garden lasses. They aren't very big, just 62 x 154 stitches each. Should I stitch them separately or on one piece of fabric, what count? Decisions, decisions, decisions...

Oh, and my Asian pear tree is in a full blossom (with Ragnar in the center):

So long my friends,


  1. What beautiful trees with a pretty kitty! Very nice mail delivery you received today.

  2. The tree is beautiful - as is the cat. Now that is fabulous mail - I'd stitch them two up, two down with some kind of border between them. Have fun!

  3. Happy mail you received. Ooh love the blossom on the pear tree.

  4. I'm also lucky there is no genetic link in my family but it is still good to be aware.
    The new charts look lovely, they would look great all in a row.

  5. Lovely stash :) I look forward to seeing your progress on them all xx

  6. Hello Evalina Maria,
    I have vitiligo on my hip, along with a few white flecks here and there. Fortunately, I'm so pale and freckled that it's not very noticeable.

  8. I would do separate and frame them the same :)
