Lots of Hearts

I began with lots of slicing left overs and gathered a little pile....
Began stitching them together.....and sewing them on to the plain borders...
And finally 2 finished Heart I Spy quilt tops.....
Blue....Miss E.
Pink...Miss C.
Backing to sort and then off to our clever quilting Faerie...FIONA
As  Hearts is the subject of this post....yesterday my dear stitching friends and I took our stitching day and morning tea to the hospital where our friend Denise has had a long stay recovering from a serious illness and undergoing lots of rehab. Our hearts were full to be together once again and we shared a few tears, lots of hugs and much love and laughter. We even did a stitch or three!
We hope to be able to repeat this more often in the future.
Our gang.....missed you Jacky xx
Sandra bought along a lovely quilt by a friend of hers for us to admire and admire we was exquisite...the quilting wonderful, so bright and happy...a real treat to see it. Apparently the lady enjoyed it so much she has embarked upon another!
My stitching efforts were a few more pieces basted for my next round of 1797.....trying to keep momentum going....
A special day.
"Let us remain friends in Sunshine and Shadow"
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
