They Did Their Share

On Veteran’s Day we honor
Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.
Some of them were drafted;
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some it’s been many years;
In the jungle or the desert,
On land or on the sea,
They did whatever was assigned
To produce a victory.
Some came back; some didn’t.
They defended us everywhere.
Some saw combat; some rode a desk;
All of them did their share.
No matter what the duty,
For low pay and little glory,
These soldiers gave up normal lives,
For duties mundane and gory.
Let every veteran be honored;
Don’t let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died;
What they did, we can’t repay.
We owe so much to them,
Who kept us safe from terror,
So when we see a uniform,
Let’s say "thank you" to every wearer.

Custom made kitchen towels and hot pads.

One of my husband's distant relatives is getting married this Saturday. Unfortunately, due to my husband's illness, we had to cancel our plans and couldn't go. But we still mailed the gift. Along with that, I wanted to make something nice for them, as they've always been very nice to us. I bought some terry cloth and made kitchen towels, embroidered their names on them. I also made matching hot pads. I hope they enjoy it!

Update on Icon

I haven't done much the last week, as my husband has been pretty sick and was even admitted to the hospital, He's doing much better now and I'm back to crafting! Here is the update on Russian Icon I'm working on now. Still long ways to go, but I can say it's coming along!

I tried to photograph the best I could. It's really hard to photograph the beads, they're really shiny and look so much prettier in person. Oh well, you get the idea :)
