The only sewing I did this week was to make two blocks for my Pieces of Friendship block group, but I forgot to take pictures of them before delivering them to the recipient. This didn't reduce my stash much at all.
My totals are:
Fabric Added - 0 yds
Fabric Used - .25 yds
Year to Date Added - 20.25 yds
Year to Date Used - 60.33 yds
On a different subject, I was honored to be in attendance at the presentation of another of our QOVs to a deserving young Marine who has earned two purple hearts and several other honors. He served in both Afghanistan and Iraq and was wounded, but survived. Since getting home he has had to face battles of a different kind - divorce, unemployment, and losing his home. He was so moved by getting this quilt that he had tears in his eyes. He said it was the best "homecoming gift" he ever received. He went on to tell us what it meant to serve his country and who the "heroes" really were--his two best friends that gave their lives to protect him. There were not many dry eyes in the audience when he finished talking. I'm so glad to be able to help with this great program. I wish I could make a quilt a week so that we could "cover" all our soldiers with our quilts from the heart.
Here are a couple more quilts that we finished Wednesday. We had more, but I was too busy sewing on bindings to stop and take more.
