I am ....

....away from home at the moment. I have some more hearts to show you but I didn't bring the SD card!! A blonde moment. Back home in a few days so you will see them soon.
The traffic on the blog has sky rocketed since showing the the exhibiton photographs. So too has mention of Hearts for Christchurch on many sites so that is all very exciting and I thank all of you who spread the word. I get wonderful emails with people saying really lovely things... it is still as exciting as Day One.


  1. Hi Evie,

    I write features for Creating Country Threads magazine, an international country crafts magazine published by Express Publications Pty Ltd.

    A friend of mine was at Canterbury museum and took heaps of photos of the hearts, I Googled ‘Hearts for Christchurch’ and came across your blog. I’d love to do a story, which would go in a section of the magazine entitled Lend a Helping Hand, where we profile a charity, organisation or individual helping the community.

    You'd need to answer questions and provide some photos (I have lots of the hearts, but unfortunately her camera was not that great and they’re a little blurry!) We’d love to organise the story asap so it would be on sale on the anniversary of the earthquake. Looking forward to hearing from you,

  2. Evie, I gulped back tears today when I took my wee girls to visit the Canterbury Museum and saw the fruits of your labour and love. Hearts for Christchurch is the most beautiful symbol of caring and love for Christchurch people from crafters all over the world. It warmed the cockles of our hearts, amazed us and enchanted our group (aged 19 months to nearly 40). Thank you so much, and thank you to all the wonderful contributors, we so appreciate it.
