Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! "Patrick Henry" Still my favorite and brought home to our family when Dear Son spent 4 yrs at U.S Naval Academy and joined Marines as an officer. He believed so deeply in his duty, that our family was able to take comfort as he and U.S. Naval Academy friends went on to Iraq. Not all of them came home alive and we were blessed to have him home. He has this posted next to our blue star, in his honor. Rena Powers, Woodward, Okla Semper Fiproud Mom of Marine
Here is my favourite quote from an American:"The true harvest of my life is intangible...a little stardust caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched". Henry David ThoreauHope you enjoy!-- Jo in Scotland

Hi Ya'll. Keep the posts coming. Wow!! Thank you all for your touching stories too. Thanks to your family members who have served and died for our country. It really means a lot to me and my own family here. My husband was a Marine (actually you never stop being a Marine) Those were some of the best times of our married lives together. We were so young and proud to have served our country. I was just the wife of a very proud 2nd Lt., but let me tell you I was just as proud. I love your quotes and the feelings that I get from each and every one of you touches my heart. I love this country so deeply.
Dear Stacy, Have prowled through your store, but don't see the pattern for the Fireworks quilt! I really want to buy one of the patterns. Hope you have duplicates somewhere. I'm a conselor, and in the lunch room there are lots of posters of famous people with milk mustaches, that say Got Milk ! Tell your "Forever Marine D H" They now have one, with DS's picture, that says "Got Marines, You bet your USA !"
This is a beautiful quilt! Thank you for sharing it :)
Your comments make me happy.
