"The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart."
I love hearts.
"Within your heart, keep one still, secret spot where dreams may go." ~Louise Driscoll

"Follow your heart, but be quiet for a while first. Ask questions, then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart." ~Unknown
I'm a sucker for anything heart shaped and I'd be embarrassed to tell you just how many pairs of heart-shaped earrings I own. My daughter gave me the ceramic box below for Christmas. She knows about me and hearts. I think I'll use it for my heart-shaped jewelry. I made the little red and black heart needle book from a kit I found at my local quilt shop a few years ago. In case you're wondering, the red "huswife" needle case is a smaller version of the one that's in Remembering Adelia, made without the felt piece for needles. I keep it in my purse and use it for carrying around gift cards or credit cards.
The case opened, so you can see the pockets. These make great little gifts for friends, even friends who don't sew. I've made about 10 of these--they're so simple and sew up rather quickly.
"Let your heart guide you. It whispers, so listen closely." ~The Land Before Time
Yes, that's right, I'm quoting the little dinosaur movie, LOL. It happened to be my son's favorite movie when he was about 3 or 4. Loved that movie. We watched it over and over and over . . . Gave me a lot of free time on the couch when I couldn't get up because of extreme morning sickness before my daughter was born.
"Little girls are the nicest things that happen to people. They are born with a little bit of angelshine about them and although it wears thin sometimes there is always enough left to lasso your heart--even when they are sitting in the mud, or crying temperamental tears, or parading up the street in Mother's best clothes." ~Alan Marshall Beck
"Be careful what you set your heart on, for it will surely be yours." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
