Sharing the Blog of an Amazing Woman

I have been following Debra's blog QuiltGypsy Mermaid for several weeks now and I have been so impressed with the work she is doing that I just had to share it with all of you.  Debra makes gorgeous one-of-a-kind full-size quilts for soldiers that have been wounded in one of the many wars that have been going on for years now.  She also makes quilts for the Moms of soldiers that have been killed in combat.

As you will read, Debra's son just came back from his second tour in Iraq and she still keeps sending care packages to the troops.

This is a woman who has won my heart with her love of her country and her commitment to our soildiers in battle.

Here are just a couple of her quilts:
 and she makes these incredible creations out of the goodness of her heart!!

Please jump over to her blog and see the love that is there!!  Bring a tissue as you read the thank you letters from the parents, soldiers and commanders.  And be sure to keep scrolling down past all the letters as the quilts are worth the scroll!!

Debra - thank you for your love and your patriotism!!
May Heavenly Father bless you and yours for all the love and hope you share!!

It warms my heart to see how much people do for our troops. My dad was in the AF for 38 years and my late husband served 25 years in the AF. Clearly, I have a great love for those who care for our men and women :)

You're right, she is an amazing woman!

Are you still looking for info on quilts for NZ'ers? I've just gotten back online, and I know I've seen something in one of the blogs I follow, but can't locate it right now. Let me know if you do and I'll see if I can track it down!
