What does one do with placemats?

 You make them into knitting needle holders!!!
 The green works great for my dpn's.  The side pocket could hold scissors and other small accessories.  The blue "book" is made from 4 placemats (purchased at Dollar General), and folded and sewn into 12 pockets to hold circular needles.  If I make another   one, it will require a bit more thought for the pockets, but  it will work just fine for 20 inch circulars.  I googled knitting needle holders, and this was one of the solutions.  Of course, I put my own spin on it!!   My, my, what will I do next?...

WWII Vets arrive home in Wichita, KS

My dad, who served in WWII and Korea, was on the Honor Flight in Kansas.  I drove in to surprise him at the airport, and BOY, was he surprised!!!!  I made him cry, but they were tears of happiness.  The crowd cheered from the 1st vet to the 72nd.  It beats anything you ever see on TV coverage on the Honor Flights.  If you ever have the opportunity to welcome the veterans home after a flight, DO IT!!!!!!!  The soldier in the second picture stood at attention and saluted all 72 veterans as they were welcomed home.  It was an awesome experience, and I'm so proud to be an American!!!
