Gathering Hearts

 
 
 
First of all I am so sorry for not writing yesterday, but blog spot had a hiccup, and was not working......maybe the reason it was down is a good thing and they are fixing some of the small problems that seem to occur from time to time.
 
 
 
I've been gathering hearts and here are a few of them in a wood bowl on my table.  I found that by lightly stuffing them with a small portion of fiber fill at a time, the design is more completely seen.  Over stuffing does not look as nicely.  Hearts have been on the front burner and tomorrow I will be sharing another bowl of heart.  The patterns are being finished by my friend and graphic designer, Alisa Quist.
 
 
 
I received the most heart warming and lovely emails yesterday from a lady who reads my blog.  I can tell she is a kindred spirit.  She signed off her email by saying "Keep a happy heart".  That hovered in my mind all day as I worked on heart!
 
 
 
I enjoyed a long conversation with my brother yesterday who lives in Minnesota.  He was snug in his house with a fire crackling as it was -50 degrees wind chill.  Then my son called to say in Ohio they had a -36 wind chill......brrrrr!  It has been cold here in Utah, but it was 26 degrees yesterday.....cold, but very manageable.....and I've been happy to be home.
