There is a Healing place here in Colorado called Combat Veterans Cowboy Up - CVCU for short.... or for me - Cowboy Up....
It is seriously an amazing place, and A LOT of healing from the wounds of war happen here.
Recently on a cold snowy day, one that made most wimpy people stay inside.... this wimpy person and her family headed out to "Hang out with the Guys and Girls" and we all froze. But it was SO pretty.
We try really really hard to make sure each and every one of these Veterans know that we care for them - and of course - the way I like best - is with a Quilt of Valor....
Can you guess how you will know it is cold? We stood outside of the barn - cuz we were cooking steaks in the barn... and you can NOT get in the way of a steak dinner (grin) ..... okay - really the light was better.
You might remember this quilt? We did a block drive here on the blog, using Bonnie Hunters Scrappy Trips pattern ( with her permission) and then we put the tops together at a sew day.
naphylactic shock... although I did require a lot of chocolate.
The best part - we all warmed up by the fire.... after the kids had snowball fights!!
If you would like to donate to this you can do so through Paypal or sending a check. It is tax - deductible.
