hearts for charity

[parts and process of making hearts]

Good morning to you,

Did the weekend pass quickly or what? Yesterday was warm and sunny and it felt so nice to be outside. On Saturday we made a big batch of chili soup using lots of our peppers and tomatoes, yummy. And of course we had to make some chocolate chip cookies! Cookies are a staple around here.

I mentioned last week that I will be adding new items to the shop that are a little out of my norm. For a number of years, in the autumn and winter, I enjoy hand-stitching sequin hearts. I know I am inspired by my grandmother who always made embroidered ornaments for us.

I would like to do something a little special with these hearts as well. So between Oct. 21 - Dec. 15 when someone purchases a heart through my shop, 40% of the profits will be donated to Habitat for Humanity Int'l.
I think it does the heart good.

Tomorrow I'll share the letterpress work I'm preparing for the update.

Have a beautiful Monday!
