Veteran's Day and Other Things

It was a quiet celebration here at our little paradise is the mountains. I was going to have the title be Happy Veteran's Day...but Sweetie really isn't very happy on Veteran's Day. While he doesn't begrudge the celebrations, the support and warm welcomes home that Vets now receive....Sweetie is from the era of being spit on, being called a "baby killer"...his airport greeters were protesters...yes, he was spit on and had "baby killer" screamed at him. Forty-five years later...the memory still brings tears to his eyes.


Here's my reading selection...I'm a being a pokey reader. Had to go on-line last week to renew the books and I'm only half way thru one book.

This is a shawl that I found directions for on-line, but it wasn't quilted. It was a bit dicey getting the backing and the front to line up with the bigger piece of batting in between. Fortunately, the spray basting will let you reposition!

Since it is experimentation, I just used two whole peices for the front rather than to any strips together.

The first row is marked with my homemade stencil and the Bubba is threaded and ready to go tomorrow.

Has anyone put a binding on something that had an inside corner? Will have to research that.


  1. The stencil will look very striking. I love the colors and fabric designs! It'll be beautiful when you get it done! Can't wait to see it!

  2. Very sorry your hubby was treated that way. I so appreciate his service and sacrifice.
