Back from a lovely holiday in France.......
We visited several chateaux, nice antique and brocante markets, had great food and wine and I even managed to read 9 books, make 7 crazy hearts and 1 crazy quiltblock!
Here you see pictures from 6 hearts I made to swap. The seventh stays at home, my DH told me that he liked it so much that I may not send it away..........LOL

These 2 are made from Debbie Mumm fabric with a garden theme.

2 Christmas hearts to swap:
Hearts from traditional Dutch fabrics from Staphorst again,nr.9 and 10 in this serie.

This morning I visited a little fleamarket and I found some old postcards, now I first have to find out how to print siggies!
Think they will look wonderful in the middle of a crazy quiltblock or heart.....
The jewelry will be a great addition to the lightcolored Victorian CQ I am planning to make in the future.

Another heart received from Candji in the USA, with wonderful SRE flowers..........

I just love hydrangea's and especially the blue ones. That is why I like the heart that I swapped with Hideko from Japan so much, it has hydrangea's (Hortensia's in Dutch) on it!
I have several sorts and colors in my garden. Unluckely the 2 heatwaves we had this summer didn't do them much good!

Just to show you that I can make something without blue in it..........LOL. This will become a needlecase for my birthdaybuddie.

This week I received 2 more hearts, both from Australia.
The white one from Maureen and the red one from Sandie, aren't they wonderful?
