Hearts Mended and Art Center

Last week at our quilt guild meeting, the guest speaker was ill, so we had a fill in.  The gal showed us how to make these mended hearts and we’ll be making some to exchange at our early February meeting.  I was so excited about them that I made up a bunch and still have enough blocks to exchange.  Here is the finished product.  The idea is certainly not mine, but they are lovely gifts.

This morning, my childcare children and I went to the local cultural art center.  The following mosaic is made with beer caps.

On another floor were fabric portraits of women artists by Kristina Staley.  Very cool!
