My friend Anita of ‘My Country Cottage Garden’ Blog, continues to inspire me with her wonderful fabric heart creations. She has been so helpful and encouraged me to try my hand at making these attractive little treasurers, she has even sent me patterns and directed me to other links that I would find helpful. Well, I’m pleased to say that I have have now completed my 2nd fabric heart and this is it.
Where, you may ask is my first heart, well, I’m not spoiling the surprise, for my special friend. Anita and I have arranged to do our own heart swap so, right at this moment, the very first patchwork heart I’ve created is winging its way to Germany, I do hope she likes it. I feel a bit apprehensive, here am I’m still practising the art of crazy quilting, and I’m sending my first attempt to a very experienced ‘heart maker’. I hope you will make allowances and be a little forgiving Anita. I have already received the heart Anita made for me, but I shall reveal her exquisite creation on Valentine’s Day.
During the last few days, I have been enjoying a vase of the most glorious lilies and I’d like to share them with you today. I only wish I could share their exquisite perfume too, its quite deliciously heady and is wafting from room to room. I do adore them.
