Post office blues

Saturday noon I took my NI quilt to the post office, to send it to Canada to be quilted. It was strange to let go, and I hope the quilt will arrive safely very soon !

The first days my head was spinning with the what-ifs, like lost, damaged, delayed.......
If you wonder why I send the quilt all the way to Canada for quilting, the reason is my friend Val has a very skilled machine quilter friend, and I will visit Val soon, in April, and I hope to bring the quilt home with me in my suitcase.
Having a quilt machine quilted over the big pond by a friend of a friend enhances my travel experiences :-)

It sure is empty on my sewing table after the big NI quilt and all the red and white bits and pieces !
Before starting another quilt I am using the opportunity to get a lot of small stuff done.

These hearts and glass hearts are my Pay It Forward gifts to Elin, Nadine and Pat. They were sent on Monday and I know Elin has received hers already :-)
I hope you all enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them for you :-)

Hanne,
This little hearts with the birds are adorable. I just love to see the work you do. I have watched over and over as the red and white blocks were created and your quilt turned out beautiful.
Thank you for sharing with us.
