Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I am so happy also I too could not donate this time out. I work with Binky Blankies, would love ot help with the military also. Maybe next time. We just had a div of guards leave for Iran yesterday. Thought we were not sending troops over there. Should tell the young mom to be whose first baby will be born Nov. 7th that we aren't sending troops over. I am so happy that the box got there safe and sound. Some happy troops yesterday...Yeh.. God Bless America and keep her free. Bless all who are in harms way or left at home waiting. and praying....Blessings
Yay! Jan. I can't wait to start seeing pix.Originally Posted by Jan in VA
YAY...so glad the first box arrived...can't wait to see pics :)
The first box had 18 quilts and was shipped on Oct 5th or 6th, if I remember; all in all, it was about as predicted, as expected. Although I'm sure their arrival wasn't "as expected" as far as the men were concerned! Oh I hope it made a happy weekend!
You know as soon as I have pics of the men you all will see them. I *will* have pics of the shipped quilts before that, as soon as I get the thumb drive with them on it from my fellow Patriot Quilter who took them. She was out of town today.
Still giggling! :wink:

Woo Hoo!! That is GREAT news!! :D:D:D
Oh how wonderful!! I don't know how we'll all wait to see the pictures. I can't stand the waiting and usually it's not a problem for me. I am so happy that the first box has gotten to the men! YEAH FOR JAN!!
Look forward to seeing the pictures. What a lovely thing to do. All our troops need our support in anyway that we can.
Doing the bump dance...oh yea....oh yea....bumping around...ooooooo gotta go easy on these ole hips! LOL
But seriously...really happy that they got it and will sleep happier with their own quilt !
