Saturday Sampler

How we started our Saturday: greeting an Honor Flight. We got to meet a 90-year-old veteran of both D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge. It was our honor to shake his hand and thank him for what he did for us. As they exit the plane, the veterans are greeted by an applauding line of active-duty service members in service dress, but civilians always end up joining in the greeting. Here you can see the line to greet the veterans stretches all the way down the terminal. The veterans walk or are wheeled down the line, to applause, handshakes, waving flags, and tears. It's the best.

 Then we visited one of the Frank Lloyd Wright houses in the area. I'm a huge fan. This was Mr. Wonderful's first visit to a FLW house, and he's now a fan, too. 

We stopped by the area LNS on the way home and I got a few small pieces of fabric, including Violet Mist and Confederate Grey, and I also picked up a new Jeannette Douglas design. I just love the cheerful colors in this piece.

Speaking of cheerful colors, check out this necklace I got. Isn't it pretty? It's available here in several different colors. It's well made, has a nice weight to it, and is long so it can be worn doubled.

So that was my very busy Saturday, ending a very busy week. Hopefully next week will be quiet because I didn't stitch a minute this week!


  1. What a busy, but truly special Saturday you had! Thank you for adding the link for the Honor Flight. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. Sounds like it was a fun day. Gosh, those veterans are so deserving of the accolades. Pretty necklace! Nice stash.

  3. Good for you two! That is so awesome to see and read about the veteran's reception. I went to Frank Lloyd Wright Middle School. He did such awesome work. You got very nice goodies. :)

  4. That Confederate Gray linen is one nice piece of linen
