I forgot to show you....

.... my most favourite pic of the exhibition!
Here it is....
To be honest I love all the pics but this one, courtesy of Canterbury Museum, just takes me back to standing in the spot where this was taken.
I wish someone had taken a photograph over my shoulder when I first walked into see the exhibition...what my eyes saw and my heart felt is etched forever in me.

Hearts in the News again!

Have a look at the link then scroll down the blog and you will find that heart amongst the collection sent by the Waikato/BOP embroiderers. It is a beautiful Hardranger heart made by Peta McMillan

How exciting!!

Not stitched....

.... but sent with love. This collage heart is from Tymm in Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada.
Many thanks.

With only a postcode to go on ,I believe these hearts came from Kent in the UK.
Thank you very much, Janis.
The following heart has been beautifully made by Hannah Leigh, aged 10. Great job!

Christchurch to Christchurch

Skilful hands of  the St Lukes Craft Group, Burton, Christchurch, Dorset, UK have sent 25 great hearts. Many thanks.
In this group Eileen has family in Napier where I also live so.... Hi from a very sunny and warm day in Napier.
Denise has a son Graham in Mt Manganui, another beautiful place by the sea in New Zealand.

The heart with the fairy was made be an eleven year old with a name that looks kind of like it Yvie? (the ink was a little smudged) and the same surname!
Oops, this one missed out....was hiding under a chair!

Three beauties.....

..... from Pam in Bracknell, UK. Thank you very much.

Fine stitching....

....from the ladies of the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Embroiderers. While on a retreat they made 32 gorgeous hearts. One came with a special request which I will make happen. A bit of intrigue for our other readers but we all love a surprise don't we??
Heartfelt thanks to you all.


....wonderful package from Solihull, UK. Thank you very much and so sorry about the delay in posting pictures.
