So today, I took a little day trip. In my new Toyota van. With part of my stitch group.
We've been working on these two quilts for a few weeks.
We made them for a project for Folds of Honor, an organization benefitting fallen and wounded military and their families. Folds of Honor, with the help and donations of local citizens has built a house on Skiatook Lake (north of Tulsa) for the the wounded and their families to have a place to relax and vacation without a charge. This is the FIRST of these houses in the country with plans for more of them in other areas. We were so excited to present the quilts today. We were told that the quilts will add a real "homey" atmosphere to the house, which is nearly done and will soon be ready to welcome the first vacationers.
Here is a picture of the outside when Tim and I went for the ribbon cutting ceremony over Memorial Day weekend.
On this weekend's celebration of our nation's independence lets not forget those who gave their lives and limbs (literally) so that we can have the freedom that we have. God Bless America!
