I went to FabricTown to meet with a group of ladies that make Quilts of Valor. My own guild has been making HeartString QOV with a few others thrown in to round out our current request, but I was in need of a few more to complete the numbers for an upcoming Returning Warrior Workshop. This group of caring women have made many QOV over the last few years - I have even quilted some from them. Helen also gathers quilts from other areas of Minnesota, as well, so a few of these are from other groups. For all that these ladies do, I am grateful! Thank you!
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
