  10. You have really received some beautiful blocks. I think the quilts are going to be amazing! Enjoy that chocolate...and if you're feeling generous, share a little with your sweet hubby! (I should have sent some for him, too!)



  11. Absolutely beautiful. There are some sweet sweet bloggers out there. Mine will be there the middle of November so I can try to improve on mine before sending them. I am honored to be a part of this. Praying for you all.

  12. I came to your blog from someone else's. They'd mentioned stars for Tory, so I came to see what was going on. I've read back through pages, and my heart is broken for all of you. I come from a military family, too, but have been fortune that all of mine came home, more or less okay, since World War II. I have a very busy week ahead, but when I finish the two borders on my American Hero top, I will spend the rest of my sewing time on Tuesday making star blocks for your quilts.

  13. This is awesome! I am so happy that you got such a wonderful response! So much love to share, both from you and for you!
    And how lucky to have your family move so close, and grandchildren! Yay!
