Memorial Day 2014

This weekend we honor those that have given the
ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Last year I wrote this blog post 
so while you are spending this
long weekend with your family please
take a moment to remember those
that gave their lives for our country.

If you wish to honor those that have served our country
or are serving it today then join us for
a Quilts of Honor East Sew-In on
Saturday June 7, 2014 at
the Warrenton Presbyterian Church
located on Main St in Old Town Warrenton.

Bring a project you are currently working on or purchase a quilt top kit on site.
We will have a few different kits available at a cost of $20. Some will be
fat quarters and others will be 2 1/2" strips. There will
be simple patterns available to use with the kits. Once you
complete your quilt top, return it to Kelly Ann's Quilting and your
$20 will be returned to you. As we rely 100% on donations, we are
always happy to accept monetary donations to continue our efforts to provide
"Quilted Hugs of Gratitude" to our deserving military men and women>

Bring your sewing machine, thread, needles, pins, rotary cutter, mat and 
anything else you use for quilting. 
Will we bring the irons and ironing boards. 

Please bring a dish to share if you would like to participate in a casual lunch.
Food must already be prepared as there will be no
cooking at the church. You may bring your own lunch if you prefer.
Bottled water will be provided as well as plates, napkins and small utensils.

We also ask that you bring a non-perishable food item to be donated
to a local food pantry.

Until Next Time
Be Kind

You see, Jimmy had always been a part of my life, at 57 I didn't know a life without having this older brother that I looked up to. We had lost our other brother, Karl, in 1984 in a car accident. When there were three, we were down to I am just one.

I found this picture of the three of us...1963/64...the cat, Waldo, is being held by Karl and if you'll notice Jimmy is in a cast..I'm sure there is a story behind that and my mother will be able to fill that in.

Let me tell you about Jimmy that his obituary didn't.

First of all..he was he got older I'm sure he tried to go by Jim, but that was always dad, he was Jimmy. As…
