The Key to My Heart.

There are so many beautiful hearts around on blogs at the moment, of every description. I love them all!!

                                                    Here is 'The Key to My Heart'.

 I am delighted to be teaching this, along with my Quilters Journal, at The Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, this August.

I used a cutter quilt for the base and lots of pretty lace which I've stitched and beaded.

I've used one of the old keys that I bought in a market in Madeira whilst on holiday last year.

I'm off to London again tomorrow to help my son and his wife with Freya and Edith and to let them have a night out together. There will be a slight detour to see my friend in Winchester on the way.
Can't wait!!!

I also would like to say a big HELLO to all the people who I follow, some of you haven't had comments as Blogger seems to have a problem again, some thing to do with the comments system I believe. So fear not I'm reading all your posts and hopefully the issues will be sorted soon.

Have a great day.
xox Angela.

Hi Angela
Here we are again! Great minds think alike! Love your dear little lacey heart! - You will so enjoy teaching this one.
Not sure what a cutter quilt is for the base???
I had so much trouble posting with Blogger that I changed to Google chrome and it seems much better but yes the comment box I think is still a problem.
Still addicted to the journal making - not sure how to overcome this one!!!~
Thanks for visiting and leaving such lovely comments.
Love and hugs,

Hi Angela, I hope you had a lovely trip to help your son's family and visit with your friend. Your heart is so beautiful and the key adds a very unique and nice touch to the piece. It's freezing here now -- I'm off to bed soon. Back to school tomorrow. Best wishes, Tammy

Angela your heart that you made is lovely, but the heart you have inside you is even more so. :) You always make me feel good when you stop by for a visit. I wish you COULD fly across the Atlantic and play with us. It would be wonderful to meet you. I hope your week is fab!!
