Wednesday, October 28, 2009


We woke to about six inches of new snow--it was beautiful, it stuck to the bare tree branches and just looked so wintry. Poor Emmi didn't know what to do and when we went for a walk she looked like a little snowball by the time we got back.

We got the longarm machine back together again but it is making a rattle type noise. Michael thinks we unseated the gears which isn't the end of the world, I just have to listen to it like that until the gears re-seat themselves?? Amy, the guru of maintenance at APQS agrees with us.

As I said in an earlier blog, the Montana coordinator for the Quilts of Valor project spoke at our quilt meeting last night. This is a nationwide project to make sure each wounded soldier coming from Germany to the United States has a quilt. The supplies for making the quilts such as fabric and batting, the postage, and the time to make the quilts and then quilt them is donated. There is a group that meets in Belgrade, MT once a month to work on the Quilts of Valor and many different groups have taken QOV on as a community service project. Even men such as those in the National Guard have gotten involved making quilt blocks. Approximately 44 quilts have been sent to Germany so far and the MT organization has another 50 almost ready to go. There was not a dry eye in the house when the coordinator read some of the thank you letters from the soldiers.

Some more wintry photos.

Tomorrow we are off on a little trip--we may or may not have internet coverage and I will let you know the results of the trip when it is a done deal!
