Quilts of Valor October

Welcome to Wednesday...... What? It's Not Wednesday??? Who says?  Can we just pretend that it is ?  I always wish I could have an extra day to the week - so maybe this is the week it will happen??

Ya, I doubt it too.....

But let's just say Wednesday was a busy one..... and you are ready to get to the quilts aren't you?

My Favorite photos are the ones like above
I love seeing the smiles, and the joy of being wrapped in a hug

And a Third by Peg
We have a Women Warriors Retreat that Colorado Supports
in 2015 we had 60 Women Veterans and were able to cover each of them with a 
Beautiful Feminine Quilt
Peg knows this - and these three of hers are slated to go to the 2016 retreat.
There is healing in these quilts!!

Just wanted to show you a really cool presentation
This Veteran was so surprised to see his gang arrive. 
Isn't that cool to have that support?

Alright - you all go forth and Quilt!
I am heading down the stairs to go Quilt!!

Don't think you EVER have to apologize for losing a day!! It happens to all of us (I think) and with as hectic a life as you live, it's not surprising. But you get SO MUCH accomplished every day! Great pix, thanks! Going to keep the feminine quilts in mind as I work on donations. Maybe I can get one done..we'll see.
