We came across this Memorial by accident and then spent hours there it was so interesting.There were more men lost on D.Day from this small town in Bedford Virginia than any other place in the USA. But it was all about all the allies who took part in the D.Day invasion 73 years ago yesterday.

Living in an old small home I do not have much storage so I decided to go to google images and now I have storage envy!!

My linen is spread between the small cupboard in my sewing room and my sheets are in my wardrobe.

SCQuilters Siggy Squares

I belong to Southern Cross Quilters an online quilting group of Aussies and Kiwis and every year they hold a Retreat in a different place e.g. this year it was in Mildura and next year it will be in New Zealand.At these retreats they swap signatures squares and eventually they are made into quilts.I haven't been to a retreat since Bendigo in 2012 but I still had three piles of siggy to make into a quilt , which is a memory not just of the retreats but also the friends you make.


My three piles of squares waiting to be made into something nice.













 Above is the Kiama quilt and to the left is the Bathurst Retreat quilt.

















Above is the front of the Bendigo quilt and on the left the back of it.
