But she’ll share…..sometimes.

Respect the Red Heart… AND the Art of Crochet

edited 1/18/08:  Just realized that the caption from the article did not print here, so here it is:

” Nancy Hilton and her husband, Mack, of Athens, stand Thursday in front of an American flag she crocheted by hand. The flag is 24 x 13 feet, weighs 43 pounds and contains more than 20 miles of yarn.”

Just a quick note. I came across this article first on Ravelry and really want to share it with the world… so here I am. Nancy Hilton of Athens, Texas crocheted an over-sized American Flag in honor for our people overseas fighting for this country. She did it with Red Heart acrylic yarn.

Please read the article and hopefully it will get to the attention of some of our military risking their lives to serve this country…. just to let them know she is thinking about them and appreciates what they are doing.
