We went to a favorite quilt shop "Something To Crow About", in Springfield. They are a small shop but full of my favorite things, and they had some finished quilts that are on my "list".
This first quilt is from Primitive Gatherings, I have this kit, but it is the first version which was a smaller scale.
This next quilt is a summer freebie from Primitive Gatherings, so cute!
Live Simply from Buttermilk Basin, I can say I did not buy this pattern set but Love it!!
Primitive Gathering Block of the week for 2013! I love this one, also on my "List". I love the theme of this Quilt, and will not start it until many other quilts get finished....
But this block: "Courage" I may do because this is my word for 2014! My oldest grandson, Tylor, enlisted in the Marine Corp and graduated from Boot Camp in December. We were honored to attend the graduation and share in his success and hard work. I am so proud of Tylor, he is a wonderful person and the most kind-hearted young man. He was absolutely committed to achieving the highest position possible in his unit. He was successful and received a meritorious promotion, and was chosen to carry the Marine Corp flag during the ceremony. I am so very proud of him! These times are very scary for me and I have been very worried about his decision. Listening to all the Drill Sargents and Officers at graduation ceremonies I heard them sa, "Courage does not mean you are fearless! It is what you do in spite of fear etc." So I embrace Tylor's life choice and will be on my own path to "Courage" this year!
Oh how we enjoyed the 70 degree weather, it was below zero when we left Oregon for San Diego!
Watching your grandchildren grow up is a wonderful experience and I am so glad I had so much time to spend with Tylor in his youth. I miss him everyday but my heart is full! I am looking forward to growing in Courage in 2014!
Baskets of Courage!
