Hi All -
Yesterday a few of the Sundae Quilters were privileged to attend the retirement of Marie, a fellow Sundae Quilter, from the Army after over 20 years of service. What a wonderful ceremony it was and we all felt a swelling of pride as we watched her start a new phase of her life. To commemorate the occasion, we presented her with a quilt that was stitched by several of our group made up of the Army Star block and done in Civil War fabrics. It turned out so pretty and she was touched - said she wasn't going to cry but there was a little moisture in those eyes!! From left to right are Jeane, Belinda, Marie, Fran and me. Following the ceremony, we had a bit to eat and got a chance to meet and greet with Marie's family and friends. We were all so glad that we were able to attend this special occasion. On the way home, we stopped at the Shamrock Restaurant and had peach pie and drinks - a great end to a great day!!
