I'm sure by now most of you know what Quilts of Valor are... I have posted about them a few times. Last Thursday at Oconomowoc quilt guild I was given a QOV to give to one of my soldiers. We write down the information and get the quilts for them as they become available. My friend Jim's dad was in World War II. Mr. Edward Mies. He is also a member at my church. He and his wife are the most caring people in the world. I was very happy to present Mr. Mies with a QOV yesterday at his home. It was very emotional for all of us.

- I was 53 in June. I feel like I'm 30. I live in Cold Cold Wisconsin. But, I love it here.. I found fabric and quilting about 8 years ago.. I fell in love with it.. I also enjoy paper art.. I'm not sure how I kept my sanity before I started doing art. I found rubber stamps about 10 years ago and have gone on to anything and everything.. I have been blessed with creative talents and love to express myself in art. I have 2 children .. one girl who is 15 and a boy who is 17. My husband and I love to hunt,canoe and just enjoy the outdoors together.. We all love the outdoors and go up to northern Wisconsin as often as possible. I'm a 14 year breast cancer survivor.. you can view more of my art at http://laurakrasinskiquilts.blogspot.com www.picturetrail.com/barngirl or my teaching, lecture and vending schedule here http://laurakrasinskisartontherun.blogspot.com
