You ever have one of those weeks where all of a sudden you realize it's Wednesday??

Last night we were watching Agents of Shield - and I had that Light Bulb Moment.... It's Tuesday nite..... which means that tomorrow is Wednesday!  Get Moooooving!!

I will tell you this is a Photo Laden Post - But I hope you will find it worth it!!

This group of Combat Veterans were so very surprised to be honored with Quilts of Valor
It was pretty cool, and sort of hard to keep my mouth shut (ha ha - no comments about that ok!)

On to the Wonky Stars that have arrived

These blocks are from Debbie in FL
They are bringing some sunshine!!

The next group comes from Carlie
in North Carolina 

Then we have blocks from Dianne in CO
