Veterans Day Tribute


A special THANK YOU to all of the veterans today,
especially my sweet husband and to all of those
that are presently serving in the military and their families. 



We appreciate your sacrifice!

What a blessing to live in this country and enjoy our freedoms.


 I've shown these beautiful Quilts of Valor before but want to share them again!


 The ladies in my community make these and present them to deserving veterans. They are real works of art.

 I've shared a lot of mosaics this week so

I'm joining Angie for Mosaic Monday HERE .

Beautiful quilts are a great way to honour those who have served. Today was Remembrance Day in Canada, marked by ceremonies, the wearing of poppies, and no school/work. We must never forget.

Hi! Your quilt is very awesome. The first world war was over on 11th in November. It's single people's day in China. It's jewels day in our country,but it is not popular.

The quilts are so beautiful. I keep hoping that our DAR chapter would do a quilt. I know that some of the ladies quilt--I don't--but I could mange one square, I think.

Debbie said...

the quilts are so beautiful, so important!! i had one made for my husbands brother, he took it to Afghanistan with him. he said it always reminded him of home!!

Red Rose Alley said...

The quilt on the bottom left looks so soft, I really like that one. Such a talent these ladies have to make them with their own hands. ; )
