“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln
Welcome to Make do Monday. With all the snow and very cold temperatures covering the country let's make a very warm quilt. Using some old flannel shirts or flannel sheets cut them into squares or have them cut into random shapes, for a simple nine patch or crazy quilt. Use some very thick and warm batting and make a quilt for your bed or for camping in front of the TV. If you kids are home from school and are old enough to use scissors, have them help cut the flannel up. Maybe teach them to sew the squares together. The top photo is a crazy quilt, with some top stitching, and the bottom is a nine patch that is machine quilted. These are not your beautiful quilts for shows, but just plan warm comfortable quilts. If you have enough flannel make a small lap quilt for each family member to watch TV with. Fun project for the family and one that everyone can enjoy. I have mine on the bed with some flannel sheets, and we can dial down the thermostat saving on the gas bill and still be warm! Have fun with this recycle project.

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
