I Received a New Heart!

  Well, not literally! Remember when I posted about the "Heart from the Heart Swap" over at Mosaic Magpie? This post.


 I received my heart yesterday, and it is soooo beautifully done! Deb was my swap partner, and she did such delicate handwork on this heart - front and back! I love the green and burgundy colors on the front, and the neutral colors on the back. Both sides go perfectly in my shabby chic bedroom (previous post also).
 She also sent another smaller patchwork heart that is just so sweet! You would think Deb had known me all of her life to pick out everything that I love.
 Notice on the back - it says, "Forget me Not".....


 Sorry, the patchwork heart is a little blurry.


 While I'm here, I want to ask you to please say a prayer for Deb's husband who is in ICU with a lung infection. I know she would appreciate your prayers. 

 Thanks so much to Deb for hosting this swap, and for my beautiful hearts. 

 I will be doing another blog post in a day or two about my mug rugs. I've had a bit of a problem as my computer in my sewing room is sick, and I have to wait for a replacement or a repair. It's only a few months old, and I'm hoping it is just a repair so I can retrieve my favorites and the pictures I've loaded recently. Thank goodness I keep my embroidery files on an external hard drive as well as on my computer.

Have a blessed Sunday!
Shirley

Love your heart....Stopping by some of my favorite blogs and some new ones (ok I can't sleep) and enjoying every minute of it. Hope you will stop by...On Monday I am giving away 4 FOUR copies of Ree Drummond's love story. It is fabulous...so I had to buy enough copies to share with my dear blog friends.

TELL YOUR FRIENDS

The heart Deb sent you is beautiful. I really enjoyed this heart swap, it was fun making something special for someone. I saw the heart you made, it was very pretty too.
