We should honor our troops everyday, but please remember them especially this weekend. They do so much for this country.
I didn't plant these, but they come up each year for me to enjoy. I know they are Iris, but I grew up calling them flags.
I did plant these, and they also come up each year. They do not last long however.

Every Monday, Heidi puts on making something new from something old and tells the bloggers to also do it. This is Heidi quilting but not from something old.

This is the semi that Eric drives. Heidi sent him an email of a trucker quilting when he is sitting at truck stops. Now, this guy has nothing on Eric. Way before this email, ---------
Eric wanted Heidi to make him a quilt. She keeps putting him off, so guess what, he made his own. I had civil war fabric wool scraps upstairs so I brought them down and here is what he made in only ten hours and with lots of M & M's.

This is the result, and he has it in his truck keeping him warm. Great job Eric.
Heidi says that all quilts need a label before they are finished. This is Eric's. Now you see why they both had to be on this post.

This cute card and a gift card came from Bill. Thank you very much Bill

I should have taken a new picture today, these flowers are even prettier now. They have opened much more. The card below came with them.
Thank you so much Mandie, Manny, Zoe and baby to be Abby.

These two pictures show one of my gifts from Eric and Becky that we took into the yard and Eric attached them to the tree. I have never seen anything like this and it is certainly cute. I love it. Thanks you two.

This is also from them, a windchime. They know I love anything USA. The gnomes I had in my yard got broken or faded so they thought they needed replaced. Now these two live out under my Bradford Pear tree. We had a cookout, but ate in. It was a fun day.

Remember the yarn I showed you in a former blog entry, well this is what I made out of it.
Abilgail Lynn is due on July 1st, and yesterday Manny's Mom and Dad hosted a shower for her family. This was a part of my gift.
We were all invited, Bill, Eric, Becky, Mandie, Manny and Zoe. George didn't get in the picture. Eric and Becky were leaving to go to Toledo.
I had to pat my new Great Granddaughter of course.
Here is the family, who will be flying back to Arizona this afternoon.
Here she is, my Zoe. Needless to say, I love my Great Grandchildren, they are all three wonderful. It was so nice to be with them yesterday and we sure missed our Hale family.
