So here we are in July already. I swear I haven't neglected the blog it just hasn't been high on the radar. So to kind of catch up here goes.
When I last posted, late April, we had just completed our first Binding Bingo. We will be having our second one on Friday, 17 July. We've changed the name to Binding Bingo and Label Lotto. The Not Forgotten QOV participants will be binding and labeling Quilts of Valor from 10 AM until 2 +/- PM while earning a drawing ticket for each quilt side completed and label attached. Elaine has been making and gathering gifts for the last week or so for the drawings. I'll again be in attendance as the Leatherneck Kilted Quilter and calling the Bingo game and acting as the Chief Cook. The menu will include my 53 Chili, five bean, three meat and Loaded Cauliflower and Loaded Broccoli. I made the cauliflower dish in April and it went over pretty well. I guess there are a lot of folks that like sour cream, bacon and cheese with their veggies.
We have been busy with Quilts of Valor, making awards as well as quilts. Below some of the awards.
