H2H (Heart 2 Heart) Blocks - FINALLY ARRIVED!!! PART 1

Hi There!

Well, if you've been following my blog,
you MUST know how hard I worked on getting MY hearts mailed out
and how anxious I was, to receive my swapped blocks back...

And then... how crushed I was,
when I received sewing patterns,
instead of gorgeous hearts...

We had a Swap Mommy that went
waaaaaay above and beyond her
"job" requirements...


Anyhow, here are my swapped heart blocks,
for our H2H (Heart 2 Heart) swap.

I've divided up the bundle in half,
and will be blogging twice, on this topic.
(easier for me...)

Soooo, without further ado,
I'd like to present to you...

My H2H blocks!!!!

OK... I confess: I forgot to put the labels on the hearts I made... I did make the labels, though, does that count? LOL. Mine is in the top right hand corner of pic #2: the pieced heart with 'dotty' fabric on the left side of heart.
Confession is good for the soul! LOL. Glad you finally received some hearts, Ro!
The unlabeled heart maker! ROFL
