Memorial Day Weekend



Memorial Day weekend is Upon us! While other holidays are for celebrating, this holiday is for observing, praying and remembering those that gave their all for us. The blank check they wrote was, unfortunately, cashed. In the midst of barbecues, camping, fishing or quilting, find a moment to bow your head and say a prayer and thank you. Please do not forget the wives, sons and daughters, other family members and friends who have lost someone who has paid the ultimate price for the freedom we enjoy!

I will be spending it with family, but as a Military Brat, it is a very heavy time. That is not to say it is bad--just Heavy. Quilting is a perfect activity, as it is very easy to reflect as you needle in -needle out. 

This one that I named Spring Fling is finally done and -cat approved! 

This  is now in my hoop:


And we are stitching-needle in-needle out!  :-)

What are you needling this weekend?
