Day 10 & 11- Veterans Day, a tribute

I am doing both day 10 and 11 together, I was out of town and having fun! Today is Veterans Day, a day to honor all the veterans that fought to keep us free and safe. We are fortunate enough to live close to the Riverside National Cemetery where my father in law is buried.
 Sadly we lost him suddenly last year. He was so proud to be a marine and to have served his country. He was in WWII and Korea and left after 25 years of service.

I am working on a fiber piece that will have him in it and today I wanted to do a rubbing of his grave marker. It is my creative thing for today and I was amazed when we arrived at the cemetery to see all the flags and people. It made me cry, so sad to think that all these people, these brave soldiers are gone now. I will be excited to use this rubbing in my newest art quilt!
