Hearts for Christchurch...

Doh! I typed this up yesterday morning and didn't manage to hit the publish button and there it was lanquishing in draft...there are times I amaze myself with the lack of basic functionality that I manage to achieve!

A Squilter who is also a Kiwiquilter posted this to the group for the lady who is co-ordinating...can you help?...

I am involved in a Heart project for Christchurch. I do not want to detract from the Healing Hearts so generously made by quilters. This is just a different Heart request.

I am gathering hearts for Christchurch. Not heart blocks in the quilting sense but `hanging' hearts. 

Two heart shapes sewn together, stuffed or not, embellished, embroidered, CQ'd, quilted, plain or fancy, felt or fabric or anything goes. Add a loop at the top.

However many inches high that you care to make. For ease of postage, envelope size is a good measurement.

Also for ease of postage you can send them flat, leave an opening and add a note "Please stuff me" I have a couple of non sewers on stuffing.
You can choose to sign them on the back and add a message. It would be nice to have at least the area they come from. 

This is just a small measure of something nice to give in this terrible time.
A heart is a symbol of caring and I know we all feel an overpowering desire to do something.

If you aren't in a position to donate a heart or two send a little bit of fabric. I have heart makers at the ready.
Or simply pass this on message with my address (please do that anyway).
Thank you.

Kind Regards

This seems like such a nice way to help and so simple...

Happy Stitching...
