A mix of appliqué, crazy and sane quilting interrupted by my wanderings around the garden and paddocks with family, dogs, cat, chooks, sheep with the odd stop to dust some part of life in general like cooking, collections and things I want to remember.

Blocking the Hearts from Around the World 2
This heart came to me from Hideko in Sendai, Japan.
This was one of the first hearts made by Hideko on Chains of Hearts a few years ago. I was so pleased to hear she was safe after the tsunami. I had the heart were I could see it each time I went into my craft room, it was then that I got the idea of how I would put some of them together. I was hoping to get one heart blocked a week but have already fallen behind. . I made the frame to surround each block so as to hide the raw edges, when I sew them together I'm going to use the same fabric to sash them.
