A Conversation Heart
Personally, I like New Year's Eve better than Christmas. It's, shall we say, more relaxed. No gifts to get ready, no food to prepare (other than what hubby and I will eat) and no pressure.
Speaking of gifts, I made seven of these Conversation Hearts for family and friends this year. I learned how from a class taught by the amazing Tammy Gilley. Each heart featured hand embroidery (I still can't believe I did that!), buttons from my good friend Linda Schultz at www.collagecloset.com, beads, a silver angel charm, hand-dyed seam binding from Memrie Marie and cute little paper forget-me-nots from 32NorthSupplies.
As a result of the class, I've become interested in crazy quilting. I'm not precise enough for "real quilting" but crazy quilting leaves me a lot of latitude!
Enjoy your holiday, and have a happy, healthy New Year!
