Two Hearts for Two Angels

Recently, a friend's daughter gave birth to twins, a boy, Dayne, and a girl, Danielle. They were born very prematurely, and both only lived a few hours. I have stitched two squares that will be part of two quilts in memory of these two little angels. Hopefully the quilts will bring comfort to the grieving family.

Just in time for St. Valentine's Day!

Here is the hardanger piece that I received in the hardanger exchange that I posted about a few weeks ago. I received this lovely heart ornament from Kate from Massachusetts. The stitching is beautiful, and the filling stitches are expertly done. I need to learn how to do picots, Kate's are just perfect! Her finishing is amazing! Thank you Kate!

The next time I see this piece, it will be all finished!

This is Quilt Sampler 1 by Linda Myers, and I am doing it as my piece for a Color Round Robin. For you non-stitchers out there, a Round Robin, or RR, is a piece that is sent around to the members of a group and everyone stitches a part of it.

This is a Color RR, and I have chosen blue. There are 8 of us in this group, and since the piece has 9 squares, I did 2 of them and the border.

Before it is finished, it will travel all across the US, and to England and Australia. Every 6 weeks, a new piece will show up in the mail for me to stitch on, and then send it on. When finished, all 8 of us will end up with some beautiful pieces.
