    (tears running down my face) First I'm glad you made it back! Second how cool that you were able to come up with a way to be in two places at once. (here and Iraq). I get goose bumps thinking of all the love you poured into your daughters quilt
    trying to make sure she knew how much you loved her and were only a cuddle away. Your daughter is very lucky to have you for a mom! Her quilt is beautiful and how it came to be is also. Thanks so much for sharing and for caring for us all. I applaud you, it had to of been the hardest longest 6 months of your life, waiting to get back home. I can't even imagine again Thank you!

    It's a lovely quilt. So glad you could leave something for your daughter to cuddle with, I'm sure that helped you both. Thank you for the sacrifices you and your family are making for the country.

    Thank you guys so much for your kind words. My husband said my daughter took that quilt with her everywhere (she was 10) She's 12 now and still sleeps with it, takes it on road trips etc.. I'm scared to wash it for it may fall apart, but it really made me come to love quilting. I have not done one since then (other than few quick rag quilts that took a couple of hours) but I have already started saving scraps and cutting squares for my next postage stamp. I love this board you guys are so kind. Thank you. My next venture is a Memory quilt, I retire next year and want to use my uniforms to make a quilt.
