The Unknown Soldier

The Unknown Soldier
by Roger J. Robicheau
The Unknown Soldier
You need not ever know my name
This unknown soldier seeks no fame
I'm here to bring out thought from you
May your heart see more than your view
America, we marched with pride
We gave our life, for you we died

How well we knew the time might come
When life could sound that final drum
Please think of us as life moves on
We tried so hard till that last dawn
Do let our spirit fill the land
Pass treasured freedom, hand to hand
God blessed this country with such love
Hold in your heart, abundance of
And when you stand before my grave
Think not of one, but each who gave

If you have not visited the tomb of the unknown soldier I hope that someday you can. It is a very emotional experience. In the meantime, here is a link to the a page dedicated to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Be safe this Memorial day.

It's not to late

Barb and Carol are doing a bi-monthly BOM of reindeer. Barb has already applique'd one Reindeer Games quilt and has started on a redwork one. Carol did her's in redwork. Dasher was first and I finished him today. Barb has included the templates for the names if you would rather applique' the names. I cheated and used my embroidery machine for the name. I'm not totally happy with the green and white thread so when I'm out Saturday I will look for some Christmas-y thread.

On Dasher!
This block seems to have got me motivated as besides finishing this block today I also did the following.

  • Finished the Be Grateful block
  • Sandwiched and basted BOTH Lazy Heart quilts
  • Prepped the last Be block Be Joyful
I'm already reading patterns for my next project. 

Happy quilting!!
