I'm a Banner Girl!

The secret is out...my Crazy Hearts quilt was chosen to be included in the Stash Manicure Banner for July!  and it is in such good company,  all are beautiful, patriotic quilts. 

Crazy Hearts for Quilts of Valor




If you want to check out the other beautiful quilts in the banner, run over to Stash Manicure today!
I enjoyed reading the stories behind the seams, and I am sure you will too. 

I am off to mow before it gets any hotter, we are under a heat advisory again today.  Wishing all of you a safe and happy 4th of July.  We have loads of company coming, so starting tonight, we will start celebrating with family at the city fireworks show.  As one of my favorite ladies once said....

"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every
 July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism." ~ Erma Bombeck

When Stash Manicure revealed its new header, I spotted your quilt immediately and wondered what the chances were that someone else had the same quilt, in a similar pose, in the same month. Not likely. And then I saw your name and read the info.
Many congratulations, Sharon. Such an honor, and well deserved!
Happy 4th--happy holiday weekend.
