Quilts for the Military
Snickers loves to stay by my side and do anything I want to do. One of my favorite hobbies is quilting. My downfall is that I get so caught up in the creative process that I forget to get up and stretch my muscles. Snickers loves to play so much that she won't give up bringing me balls to throw or toys to tug. It is a great way to keep moving.
Snickers is a great inspiration. Her favorite hobby is chasing her tail. It seems that no matter how many times she catches it, that tail just curls back up and begs to be caught again! Snickers works so hard at it that she sometimes somersaults around the room.
Together, we make 10 quilts for wounded military that we send to chaplains in San Diego and Walter Reed. One goes to my cousin who was wounded in a road side bomb explosion in Iraq. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we all just stopped what we were doing and chased our tails a little more often?
