How I Spent Veterans Day

By November 13, 2012

Follow me on:

40 finished stockingsMy husband is a Veteran but his employer does not recognize the day as a holiday. So while hubby was off at work, I took the opportunity to finish the 40 stockings I had started for Operation Holiday Stocking.  I will be mailing them off the next time I go out.   It should be reasonable shipping if I fit them in one of the one price boxes the post office offers. Any way I look at it, the shipping is a small price to hopefully make a soldier smile!

Now that I have finished what I can for donating, it's time to start looking through all of the Free Patterns for Christmas Stocking, Fabric Gift Wrapping and Holiday Decorating Patterns to make some new items for my home this year. New memories are always a good thing.

Wow, that must have taken all day! Just wanted you to know that I used the knitting instructions on the web site to knit up 12 stockings and mailed them a month ago. Remind us again next year! Thanks.

My company gives us Columbus day…and we have many Federal Contracts we handle!!!
Neither my husband nor my employer recognize Veteran’s day.
I spent the day doing the biggest majority of my Christmas shopping and visiting those small shops I never see to be able to get to.
