Hello all, Mary Ellen back!

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. Life does get in the way sometimes, but I’m going to try to be better about this. Please comment now and then so I won’t feel like I’m just talking to myself.

Do you like surprises? I usually do…not surprises of the startling type such as the gigantic garden spider I found under a leaf yesterday-but most surprises are fun. I’ve run across a surprise that I think would be as fun to play on someone, as it would to be surprised by someone. It’s about placing random quilted hearts out in the world for others to find. The finder can keep the heart and, if he/she wants to, log in to the organizers website to tell where they found the heart and perhaps tell a bit about the reaction to the surprise. When I checked the map at the website, it seems that this hasn’t hit New York yet, so I’m going to get started. Maybe you’ll find a heart.

In the stressful, combative world we live in-finding a quilted heart by surprise would certainly put a bright spot in someone’s day. Great activity to do with kids this summer too I think.

Check out the details here.
