More Hearts!!!

Hi there!

This month, is my birthday month and BOYS, have "I" had a lot of wonderful surprises,
in my mailbox!!!

I'm in a EXTRA special Heart swap, with a few gals. *s*

This one came from Monika -

INCREDIBLY beautiful and such teeny, tiny stitches!!!!

This one came from Brigitte... she's in my extra special swap group, too!

Her work is absolutely LOVELY!!!

And when you look behind the block.... her stitches are just as nice!!!


Today, my friend Marianna sent me SEVEN (7)
incredibly GORGEOUS Heart blocks!!!

This was a total surprise.
She wrote that she was thanking ME for helping her out,
a couple times.

I honestly didn't expect anything.... but she's NOT getting them back!!!


These are MUCH better looking, in "person"...


All are machine embroidered!

I think this one is my favorite.... *s*

No, wait.... THIS one is my favorite!

No.... WAIT!!!


Gosh... I think they're ALL my favorites!!!!

Where did she get her ideas?!??

Thanks everyone!!!

In the words of Marianne Moore:
"The Heart that Gives, Gathers."

Hope to blog more often -
I see that I hadn't blogged in almost TWO weeks!!!

Those heart blocks are gorgeous!!!! I'm not surprised you're having trouble picking out a favorite. Are the redwork blocks hand or machine embroidered? They look amazing! What are you going to do with them?

Happy quilting,

Well, girl, if you are in the H2H swap you all will get at least one of these blocks....and if you like to know these are designs from Juju designs, an embroidery designer and a great one as those designs always stitch out so well.
Happy quilting,
PS No, Rosa, I even don't WANT them back. They are all yours!
