God Bless the USA......

And all of those who served and continue to do so.  Thank you seems far too little.

My dear husband, Blake, retired from the US Army after 22 years of service. He was awarded the Bronze Star while serving in Vietnam.  When you ask him what he did, his response is unfailingly, "My job".  And that is his attitude, humble, service oriented....a gentle giant with an unexpected sense of humor. I am blessed to live my life with this man.

These are the recipients of the Sew Crazies' Quilts of Valor that were presented locally.

 Mark Allen, Veteran of Iraqi and Afghanistan wars and injured in Afghanistan.

Richard Morris, Korean War combat veteran.

John Stanish, a Merchant Marine veteran of WWII.

David M. Cola, a Veteran of the Vietnam War,

I feel so blessed and humbled to have had a small part in being able to honor these American heroes.
Has me busy planning the next QOV.

Each and every one of the men and women who have served and presently serve this great country.
The USA.
The Great God upon whom this country has its foundation.

Take Care,


  1. May God bless America and all our veterans. That picture of Mark Allen just breaks my heart. It proves that freedom isn't free.
    A big thank you to your husband and to all veterans.
    Hugs :)

  2. How blessed to be married to such a wonderful man...and to be a part of such a special project bringing warmth and love to our veterans. Hope you have a blessed day, my friend!
