From Yorkshire...

A great selection of hearts ... thirty of them! Great effort.
Heartfelt thanks to Pauline.

We have been ....

.... on an outing.
I was invited to be a speaker at the Hawkes Bay Embroiderer's Guild. I didn't want to go alone, so I took a thousand  hearts with me. They were much admired and while there I collected two more gorgeous hearts....here they are.

Candid Camera

The hearts needed shifting about in the spare room so I grabbed the camera. They are in no particular order, haven't been 'positioned', there are front and back views and some to the side. Though they look a little crammed they aren't like that all the time but it helped me move about the room! Not shown are the four boxes full of flat hearts.

Sorry it took so long....

Finally, here are the hearts from Bridport in Dorset, UK. Many thanks to Shirley.

A beautiful, lovely smelling heart from Heidi in London. Heidi and her daughter Rachel have a long (25yr) connection with New Zealand. They attended the Memorial Service at Westminster Abbey and say it was very moving.
Many thanks for this token of your caring.

More from Wales....

These floral beauties are from Newport in South Wales. Many thanks to Heather.

Technology glitch....

I am trying to add comments and photos to the blog but Blogger must be having a little hissy fit because I officially don't exist anymore!
I will keep trying!

Nowra Quilters sent....

....44 heart blocks which are already on the blog. Now, they have been made into two fabulous quilts.
Dorothy in Stratford  put the blocks together, surrounding them beautifully with floral fabrics and finished with lovely quilting.
Heartfelt thanks Dorothy.
The other blocks on the reverse of each quilt.
Don't worry about the missing 'h' .... it is in the heart!

I am sure ....

.... you will immediately know where these hearts are from!
Made by the ladies of a Craft Circle in Porth, Rhondda Cynor Taf, Wales.
Fantastic pride in their flag is shown. Thank you very much.
Apologies for the sun/shadow on the photo.
