Chain of Hearts...

About 4-5 years ago now, I was in a Chain-of -Hearts swap...
It was so much fun, swapping little hearts with girls from all over the world....these above little CQ hearts were embroidered from their heart and sent to me!
Beautiful friendships were made....♥
Sadly, what with one thing or another I had to drop out of the group, but I do have these lovely hearts to look back on and remember each girl when I see her name on the back..
Above, I have counted 27 on the table... I have another 14 made up into a swag attached to the curtain valance in my sewing room!
The hearts have come from Japan, Italy, Norway, New Zealand, England Canada, USA, of course Australia...all over the world.. For each heart I received, I made and sent one back in return.
There are to many girls to name in fear of leaving someone out, I won't name names...the girls know who they are...from my heart, thank you girls..

In friendship...♥
