Thank you Les P for your service








  After one weather postponement and the winter holidays, the award occurred on Sunday, 3/12/2017.  My friend Beth accompanied me to this event.  Others present included his wife, his son and daughter-in-law and grandchildren.  The individual who nominated him (a friend who currently lives in California) called after the quilt was awarded since texts and photos sent almost in real time informed family and friends across the country of the occurrence.  

Les served in the Army infantry in Europe during WWII (1944-1946) and was very appreciative of being honored with a Quilt of Valor.

Awarding Quilts last night

Last night, accompanied by Sue N, we awarded some quilts.  Joshua G, Army/Marines, Afghanistan received his quilt.  Thank you Joshua for your service.  We then attended a Flags of Freedom fundraiser in Princeton.  They were raising funds for the HUGE flags that fly along I80 in Princeton.  We awarded quilts to Veterans from WWII, Korea, Vietnam.  Thank you gentlemen for your service!  Here are a few pictures.

Doubling up here!  Tomorrow, March 4, is the debut of a QOV sew-in in Rolling Meadows, IL: First Saturdays, 1900 Hicks Rd. We will be sewing from 9:30 till 3.  I know lots of people asking for weekend sew ins.   Here's your chance.  I wish I could be there, but Granddaughter's birthday party...maybe I'll drop in next month.

And as I'm reminding.... we meet again at the Moose in St. Charles, Tuesday, March 7! Look forward to seeing every one AGAIN!!!!
