This quilt has taken me a long time because all the heart appliques have a tiny hand embroidered motif in the centre. Each one was embroidered under a magnifying light so that my stitches were accurately placed and neat. I have worked on it over a period of two years but not consistently – doing other stitched projects in between. This quilt is reserved for my youngest daughter, it’s too precious to sell and worth more than money to me. It represents love. Love of my craft, of achievement and love for my daughter. But it stays with me for now to show off occasionally, maybe to exhibit and just to feel the satisfaction of completing something of which I’m proud.

Each little embroidery a celebration of my cataracts operation!
