Happy Veteran’s Day!

It’s Friday AND it’s Veteran’s Day!  To all veterans, past and present, still with us or gone, and their families……this day is for you and to remind the rest of us that you all give so many sacrifices so that the rest of us have our freedoms. I salute and honor each and every one of you. You are never far from my mind and are always close to my heart. Your unselfishness has allowed me to have the life I do today, and for that I am eternally grateful.
I finished my Warrior’s Walk hearts. And I am totally in love with this pattern. I shared it in the last post along with one of the other hearts that I made. I think my most favorite is the one just below. I love the red, white and blue together on it. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft. I have a whole tub full of Caron yarn. It works up so nice doesn’t it?
I am in awe of my creations this time.  I sit in my chair crocheting and am always thinking. I was fretting this time about what kind of hearts would I make and I went with my standby pattern on the first heart that I posted in the last post. And although I love that pattern, I wanted something different. Then I received in one of my FaveCraft emails the pattern for these and I was blown away by how easy and quick they crocheted up and how ‘heartly’ they were. I know that’s not a word but I don’t know what other word to use. I know this pattern will be worn out by me because I love it and it will come in handy for a lot of projects, big and small.
I love this pic. Do you see Mr. Lick Lick’s shadow (and actually part of his body)? He always has to be in on the action! These are the 4 that will be adorning our adopted soldiers trees until Memorial Weekend. They’ll be replacing the last ones we put up and they’ll be placed there with love and respect and a moment of reflection.
Happy Veteran’s Day……..remember them all in your prayers and know that their sacrifices were not in vain.  Thank a vet for what he/she has done for us!
Cya soon!


  1. Love the hearts and the picture with the little "guy's" shadow is amazing! I got to have some hearts ... and how wonderful what you are doing them for. Blessings to you for the care you give to others.

  2. Your hearts are very pretty and perfect for today. Happy Veterans Day. Heather

  3. LOVE those hearts. I wish Caron wouldn't dry out my hands as much as it does. Vanna's Choice is the only one that I can use without getting dry hands.

    But, then again, as long as I keep Suave lotion with Oatmeal around, the little, dainty (not) hands stay fine.

    Again, LOVE all the hearts.

  4. Happy 'late' Veterans day and
    Happy Thanksgiving.
    Enjoy your time in the woods.
