You don't have to be a Civil War buff to know that we are in the 150th anniversary years of the Civil War. Yes, 1861 + 150 is 2011 & we'll be within the anniversary years through April, 2015. There is much commemoration going on especially at the various battle sites out east. At least one battle site visit is on my bucket list before 2015 -- how about yours?
Well, what am I doing planning a trip & thinking about the Civil War days, when I have weeds to pull, windows to wash, & lots of patterns to write!??
It's because I'm doing my Civil War presentation tomorrow at the Swea City Lutheran Church at 1:30 & have been gathering up the quilts & patterns & getting them ready to go. So join us if you can & hear about my inspiration for the Battle quilts & the Generals quilts. And, of course, we'll be showing all the quilts! And who knows - maybe we'll learn a little history!
