surprise

Monica asked today, which surprise I was talking from

in one of the previous posts.

Here it is

She told me (before my trip to her) she is starting to collect HEART blocks for a Valentine quilt she wants to have one day.

In her house is one wall in the entry hall perfect to represent a quilt. She made several quilts for different seasons: Xmas, spring, summer ..... collected many stars for a quilt BTW: more than I collected :-((
but no autumn and no Valentine blocks now :-)

After my first steps in "writing" I thaught this might be a funny idea to start with a heart block, which is actually not a REAL heart

I have to confess, right now my posts are not looking like what I planned to have ........ more luck, than knowledge


Today arrived a lovely surprise from Dawn http://dquilts.blogspot.com/
in Illinois!
THANK YOU Dawn !!!
Now I am the lucky owner of the fantastic Gee's Bend stamps, a little needlemap and an intersting folded fabric,which is going to be part of something special in the future. I would like to open the folding to see a bigger part, but I'm afraid to get it refold.



here you see the always very interested Nelli,
which said: no picture without me!!!
