In honor of our Veterans

VETERANS


Valiant and honorable, 
Ever ready to serve,
Taking upon themselves the burden of war,
Even when they feel weary and worn,
Ready to take a stand and stand up for what is right,
All should remember, it is because of the Veteran,
No governmental oppression binds us in bondage, 
Serving on our behalf they have ensured our freedom!

Fall back...

Today, daylight saving time ended.  It started with my getting up at 5:00 a.m instead of 6:00 a.m. due to the fact that we forgot to set our clocks back.  :)

It turned out to be a beautiful day, with clear blue skies, cool temperatures and beautiful colors God gives us each Autumn.   I did not make it up the mountain today to get pictures of the foliage but I do have a couple of pictures I took of trees in town.

Each season has a gift from God for us to enjoy.

The Winter has its crispness with frost.   It has beautiful snow as it falls as if we were in a giant snowglobe.

The Spring has freshness and newness of life after the earth has slumbered for so long.

The Summer is full of sunshine and beautiful flowers that fragrance the earth.

The Autumn... my favorite season of all... has beautiful warm colors of gold, orange, red, dark green and brown that color the earth like a big Autumn quilt.  :)


Thank You Father God, for the beautiful gifts You give us each season!

Go Hogs!!

Here is the razorback quilt I've been working on.  I will put two borders on and it will be ready to tie. 

The embroidery work was done by my friend Charlotte Koenigseder.

I am going to start on a peace sign quilt this week too.
