Love Heart and new goodies

What a relief yesterday’s dentist visit was. We were both expecting to have to make appointments for fillings but he advised leaving them alone unless they cause any pain. 

A friend asked me if I could make her a lilac heart with love on it for her friend who was dying. She wanted to give it to her to let her know she was thinking of her. I only had the request late Friday night so sewed this on Saturday for her. Sadly she passed away on Saturday before my friend had a chance to collect it. However she was going to give it to her family.

I inserted the cross stitch material into the diecut heart and made the design up as I went along. She was very pleased with it. I just wished she had asked me earlier in the week so she could have given it to her friend.

I received my latest DT pack from Craft Label. We are given codes now and as long as we chose the new papers we could decided what else to get. I have been using some of them and will share my cards soon.

Had the same with the dentist Marianne, I think they are doing as little invasive treatment as possible still.

Pretty needlework.

A beautiful heart and so sad that she never saw it. I am sure the family will love it.
It was 4 years ago yesterday, that my very close friend passed away aged 64. I had made and sent to her, one of my friendship hearts. She hung it where she could see it at all time. She loved it so much. Hugs, Carol

Hello Marianne, well don with the dentist, Alistair had his appointment yesterday and passed muster, not needing anything done. I have mine this coming Friday and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will need nothing doing either.
How sad that your friend didn't manage to give her friend this lovely little heart, I'm sure her family will appreciate having it. As usual your stitching is beautiful. Have a great weekend, Kate x
