Hearts from Pierrefeu

With great delight I received the hearts from Pierrefeu. Thanks to Lou, who collected the hearts for us and sent them over. Some of them have wonderful Provencal lavender inside, they smell heavenly.

I really enjoyed doing this, so if Henriette plans on it again for next year, we will certainly participate. There is nothing happier than the sharing of a hobby, as I am sure all you quilters and boutisseuses will agree LOL
Un grand merci a toutes les dames qui ont fait un travail superbe. Nous allons conserver precieusement les coeurs que vous avez fait pour nous.

Mystery Quilt Day

The quilt guild I belong to has a mystery quilt day each year, one Saturday in the spring. I have not always been able to go, but have always enjoyed the ones I attended. This last Saturday was the mystery day this year, and here are some of the photos of the finished tops (some of them are even quilted too !) The mystery is planned by a group of ladies in the guild, and this year's theme was "waste not, want not" - the idea was to use up fabric you already had in your stash. I used lots of different blues, and will show you mine when it is finished (I hope you are prepared to wait LOL !)
Anyway, I am sure you will agree that they came up with a great idea, and it was a fun time.
