In early December I was looking through the Alchemy listings and came across one titled "Service Memebers Ideas". I was intrigued for many reasons. First, I am married to a Veteran, Second, my father is a veteran and last but not least, my two step-sons are currently serving in the military.
I soon found out that the owner of a a shop on Etsy, Ginksburg's Handmade Dresses, Quilts & Fashion Jewelry, intended to donate a Veteran's Quilt from her shop to a veteran. I decided to see if I could win the Veteran's Quilt for my father. I filled out the entry form and waited.
About a week later I was notified that I won. I was so excited. I didn't tell my Father about it, I decided to let it be a surprise.
Here is a link to the shop:http://www.etsy.com/shop/ginksburg
He called me when he received the quilt. He loved it! The quilt had several insignia embroidered on it. My step-mom remarked on how well-made it was.
Unfortunately, I live about 20 miles away from them and I did not get a chance to see the quilt myself until Christmas. And then I was surprised. Look at the pictures of this quilt. It is a wonderful momento, reminding us of all the men and women who have served this great country.
I did a little window shopping and I want to share some of the other treasures in this shop.
and this one just makes me feel good:
this is so cute. I wish I had a granddaughter:
this is the cutest apron:
Thank-you very much for this great quilt.
