Battle of Plattsburgh - War of 1812

Every year, the city of Plattsburgh celebrates it's famous battle of 1812.  This year was their bicentennial!  For the whole weekend, the city is bustling with activities include re-enactments.

This year, in celebration of the bicentennial, a War of 1812 quilt exhibit was organized by Jean and Linda.  

Many of these quilts had personal family history related to the battle itself, and for those having no link to this historical even, quilts were created as a token of gratitude to America's past and present service men and women.  Allow me to share some of these beautiful quilts, many of which are Fibre Junction customers.

Kerry's quilt - The Banks of Champlain

This quilt is from Susan -  Stars and Stripes Forever.

Mary Lou - Memorial Quilt

Cathie (a Fibre staff) - The Kent Delord house during the War of 1812

Terry (the one and only male guild member) - Canterbury Revolution

Here are a few more for your enjoyment.

and more ....

Last but not least Jack's first quilt - Tribute to Commadore Macdonough

So there you have it ... 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my little corner in cyber space!  Cheers!

Super Moon Monday ....!

Moon rise over Lake Champlain ....

Nothing like eating a soft server with your favourite daughter by the lake with a Super Moon in the background.  What a great summer evening!

I've been a busy bee ..... no baking for me .... I'm pretty much all baked out for the moment.

I've been working on some small projects that incorporate hand embroidery and using scraps.  Not sure what my fabric scraps do behind closed lids, but let me tell you they have been multiplying...

Voici June....

and December....

I have a few more stitched out, that are waiting to be pieced.

Thanks for stopping by!  Keep well!  Cheers!
