Summertime friend

Look who came to visit while I was out watering!  Not too hot for this little guy!  I noticed that part of his wing was missing, wonder what happened?  I try to plant flowers that will attract butterflies and far this year, I have not seen a single hummingbird.  Usually I can get at least 2 or 3 interested in the such luck this year!

It's sad when one thinks it is too hot to go to the pool!  So I am staying inside and trying to catch up on my Civil War blocks. 

And Penelope finally has a face! 

These are certainly the lazy, hazy days of summer...good for catching up on sewing and reading!  Hope everyone is enjoying the summer inspite of the heat!   I keep telling myself...remember last winter!

I'm a Banner Girl!

The secret is 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
