Mom modelling new bag

I have been working on a few new patterns, this is a Tunisian crochet with bobbles bag modelled by my mom. She is in the late stages of early onset Alzheimer's and is in a nursing home (its hard to believe looking at the photo she is so young and there are many young people with this illness). We are luckily she does recognize my father, brother and me and many other family members, lots of suffers do not. Plus even thought she can no longer knit or crochet she still likes to look at and feel the different balls of yarn (don't all us knitter and crocheters). I often bring my knitting and crochet with me when I visit. It seems to make her calm and relaxed plus she often makes comments about the stitches and colours.
