Happy Veteran's Day

11-11-11 stands for today Friday November 11, 2011.  What a "cool" date that is....it just makes you want to buy 11 fat quarters, 11 spools of thread and 11 patterns!!!!

11-11-11 also signifies an important day in national history - Veteran's Day.  It is a day that we remember and recognize those that have served our country and promoted and protected our freedom.

I think it is also worthy to recognize the efforts that Jean and many of the quilter's have taken in terms of national service.  Quilts of Valor is a program that Jean participates in and has worked tirelessly to put handmade quilts in the hands of veterans and soldiers touched by war.   Through donations by individual quilters and Jean and her shop, numerous pillowcases and quilts have been donated to the national program.   Check out the Quilts of Valor Website at http://www.qovf.org.

More to Come Soon

Okay - I owe all of you an apology with an explanation.  I love going to Quilter's Haven, seeing what is new, visiting with all of the wonderful staff members, and getting inspired and learning from Jean -- and then coming online and sharing some of that with all of you.   However, my lungs seem to be getting in the way of my love of quilting lately -- I had pneumonia in September, only to recover and mange to get double pneumonia in October and land in the hospital for 7 days....needless to say this has cut into my quilting fun....

I haven't had an opportunity to get over to the shop to photograph the block of the month blocks, see what is new -- or even hear all about market from Jean.   But, I promise you --- SOON....and I will SHARE...

In the meantime, let's talk about Winter.  Well the cool air is not something  my lungs love right now -- rumor is that there were snow flurries in the air last night....so that means....

WINTER BLUES....


This photo does not do this quilt justice.  The quilt is in the shop and it is BEAUTIFUL!!!  This is a Stitch Connection Embroidery CD that has all kinds of fun snowmen and snowflake blocks on the disk -- all ready for you to put in your machine and embroider a beautiful winter quilt.   The CD also includes instructions for putting the quilt together and incorporating the designed.

EVEN BETTER:  Jean and her wonderful staff have "kitted" this quilt so the fabrics are all ready for you to begin the embroidery and finish the quilt.  Jean has the embroidery CD's in stock and ready to go home with you.

Sounds like a good winter project....I know that I must be recovering...because my thoughts are turning from how sick I feel to how much I miss Jean, her wonderful staff, all of you....and quilting!!!
