here. As you can probably guess by the tree theme, these are going to be graduation gifts. And Daniel and Quarta have requested one too. I have every intention of putting the scraps away and working on a color-coordinated project ... soon. Just not yet. This is about all the attention span for patchwork I can muster.

I was moved by a photo a Facebook friend posted today: her grandmother standing next to the Okinawa inscription at the WWII memorial in Washington, D.C. Widowed at age 22 with 2 babies to bring up alone, this elderly lady stood, fierce, proud, and independent, the way Americans have to be when their loved ones paid the ultimate price for our freedom. We have a rare thing going on in America; I hope we can be aware and appreciative of what it costs before it's too late.
